Youth supporters thanked
Choices for Teens would like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations in product and gift certificates: Duncan House, Eagle Eye Photo, Fashion Outlet, Picture Alaska and Two Sisters Bakery. These donations were used for prizes during our fourth annual Youth Appreciation Week. We'd also like to acknowledge Wells Fargo Bank and the American Legion for their contributions toward funding our Youth Appreciation Week.

This community collaborative event was a week full of free fun activities for the whole family. We had a wonderful turnout to each of our events, including: a carnival, a beach party, wilderness hike/scavenger hunt, skate day, pool party, open house at the Boys & Girls Club, Street Dance and Fish for Fun at the reservoir.

We want to especially acknowledge the work and support of Homer's Finest Bed and Breakfast, which not only baked cookies to give out during our Carnival, but also provided a puppet show that the kids truly enjoyed.

None of this would have been possible without the cooperation of all the organizations and businesses here in Homer. We truly appreciate this community that shows its support of youth and family.
