Dear APWA Members,
I hope you all had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! Despite restrictions we have had a bustling Fall of APWA activities and events and I’d like to send a warm thank you to all who helped and attended. December brings us opportunities to find hygge (warmth and companionship) in our beautiful outdoors. Gather around the fire for Warmth and Wine on the 11th, and enjoy the glow of Zoo Lights on the 20th. We are also starting what we hope becomes an annual tradition with Elf on the (Top) Shelf holiday gift exchange. Finally, thank you to our members that gave of their time to wrap gifts for youth living at Covenant House.
We are also excited that nominations for next year’s non-profit partner are now open. There are so many good organizations out there, and supporting our community has been an important part of APWA since our founding.
While you are doing your Holiday shopping, please don’t forget to use the Amazon Smile Program by following this link, or setting your charity to Anchorage Petroleum Women’s Foundation directly in the App. This year we are supporting the Chugach Park Fund, and their efforts to make Chugach Park accessible for everyone to enjoy.
We have been working this year to update the website - now you can find the monthly message from the President, updates from Chugach Park Fund, and information about our fundraising efforts all on the webpage. Check it out and let us know what you think!
May each of you find health, happiness, and peace during the holiday season and through the coming year.
