Holland America Helps Marathon Wrestling Club

Jewel & DotThe Marathon Wrestling Club has started up again after several years in limbo.  They expected a few kids to show interest up and were astounded when 49 kids signed up.  This meant they were sorely in need of equipment, so they submitted an application to Holland America for help.  The applications were reviewed in the Spring and the Marathon Wrestling Club received a check to get them started. Here is Jewel Williams, secretary/treasurer of the club, receiving the check from Seward Community Advisory Board chairman, Dot Bardarson.


The Fall review of grants requires a deadline of August 15.  Holland America is looking for  non-profit organizations that benefit Seward, Moose Pass or Cooper Landing. To obtain a paper grant application call Dot Bardarson (224-3131).  To go digital, contact Kathy Newman at Holland America (907 264-2162) or send her an e-mail .
