The Anchor Point Snow Rondi was, as the theme promised, a little touch of heaven for everyone involved.

Even chilly temperatures, forced further down the thermometer by a brisk wind, couldn't stop the sun from shining on southern Kenai Peninsula residents intent to break winter's hold. Organized by the Anchor Point Chamber of Commerce, this year's Snow Rondi was sponsored by members of the Pa Haga Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10221.

The action began Thursday and continued until an awards ceremony at the Anchor River Inn Sunday evening.

And now it's straight on to spring and summer, with the next events on the Anchor Point chamber's calendar the opening of Anchor River for king salmon fishing in May and the Memorial Weekend Family Fun Festival May 27-30.
