Dear APWA Members,
I hope that each of you had the opportunity to rest, relax and rejuvenate over this holiday season. I miss our gatherings and look forward to the time (hopefully soon) when we will be able to get together again.
Even with all the restrictions December brought we had a busy month. We were happy to start the month with the launching of the Elf on the (Top) Shelf gift exchange. It was fun to plan what to get for my partner, and a delightful surprise to receive a gift at my front door. I look forward to this becoming an annual tradition. A group of us spent a Sunday afternoon wrapping gifts for the young people at Covenat House - I was especially pleased that since it was moved to Hotel Captain Cook I could bring my kids. Finally, a small group enjoyed the beautiful weather and festive lights at the Zoo.
January has started with the launch of our new fundraising campaign “Flamingo Flocking”! Don’t miss your chance to get in on the fun and “Flock” your friends and family. Visit our website to choose who and when you would like to Flock. The flamingos will be migrating to Anchorage on February 1st and then resting in yards for about 24 hours before moving on. We expect them to stay in the area for all of February. All net proceeds from this event will support our non-profit partner Chugach Park Fund.
Our monthly gathering for January will be a family skate at Winchester Lagoon on Saturday the 23rd from 1:00 to 3:00pm. When you arrive make sure you look for the APWA car with the trunk open and some decorations, and stop by for hot chocolate or cider, and some cookie treats.
