Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 9.55.44 AMTo the generous and supportive community of Seldovia!  This weekend we had the drawing for the Kindle Fire HDX.    Our 7 students got out the door and made phone calls to relatives and friends, and sold $1,925 in tickets to raise funds to attend Close Up in Washington DC this April!  Thankful for the anonymous donation of the Kindle Fire, all those monies go directly to funding travel, lodging and tuition expenses for the trip.

The winner’s name was drawn this past weekend at the High School Basketball tournament, and the winner was Jeanice Janes – Coach Mark Janes’ mother from Texas!   Congratulations Jeanice!  We want to sincerely thank all the generous folks who bought tickets from students, not only once, but twice and even three times!  One local gal said “I’ll buy tickets from anyone who stops by the door to ask!  I love to support our kids and our school and Close Up is a valuable trip!  I just buy a few from each – spread it out a bit!”

Also, we had a baked goods sale that also included a wide variety of items from canned fish, bread, cookies, eclairs to brownies, piroshkis, and two beautiful handcrafted wood items built and donated by Dick Yingling to raise an additional $690!

So, thank you again to the entire community for your endless and continued support of our Susan B English students!

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training comes to Seldovia!

Have you ever wanted to find a way to contribute to the community if something major occurred?  The Community Emergency Response Team or CERT is a mechanism to do just that – we prepare for large-scale emergencies and natural disasters and act as a bridge between our established responders and community members.  CERT training is an all-volunteer program that consists of basic training sessions that teach skills in disaster preparedness, fire suppression, disaster medical operations, light search and rescue, team organization, and more.

This is a national program administered locally by the Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management.  Our goal is to train people to care for themselves, their families, and their communities in a disaster.  At the conclusion of the class, participants have the option of joining the CERT team.  If people wish to join the CERT team they are issued basic safety/response gear and are given the opportunity for additional training and activities.

The Office of Emergency Management is bringing this training to Seldovia with the cooperation of the Seldovia Fire Department, the Seldovia Village Tribe, and the State of Alaska Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management.  Class sessions include:

Training Schedule

All class sessions will be held at the SVT conference center.  To reserve your spot in the class, please sign up at the post office or online at www.kpvolunteers.org/seldovia.asp.

There is no cost for the class, people of all ages (13 +) and physical abilities are welcome.  All supplies required for the class will be provided.  If you have any questions, please contact Dan Nelson, program coordinator, at dnelson@borough.kenai.ak.us or at 262-2098.
