Yes to White Cliff
By Mary Ellen Haseltine


September 18, 2006

To the area voters:

Fifty-seven years ago I arrived to teach first grade at White Cliff, known as the newest school in Ketchikan. The average age of my first graders was six years and today those young people are now sixty-three. Wonder of wonders, White Cliff will now be a part of their lives again if the voters cast their votes for the renovation of this historic building to provide use by Ketchikan Senior Services, Ketchikan Ballet, First City Players, and the Ketchikan Area Arts Council. Each group will have its own area. Seniors to share a noon meal with each other, socialize, etc. Interaction with the other groups will be special as their children and grandchildren could very well be part of the other groups. Please consider this as you decide to vote Yes to have White Cliff again part of their lives.
