Thank you Ketchikan

Dear Editor,

My family moved up here to Alaska nearly 5 years ago. Since then I have been involved in many things such as basketball, football, baseball, and wrestling. At first I was very new to the idea of having to raise large amounts of money just to go play sports, but quickly realized how expensive it is to travel. I have had a great experience up here with sports and this town.

 I would like to thank everyone in this community who has helped me in fundraising for basketball, with my Eagle Scout project, and with everyone else’s fundraising that they have done. We could not do many of the things we are privileged to do up here like sports and other activities without the constant ongoing support of local residents and businesses owners. The generosity of this community makes me happy to call this place home.
