The public is invited to celebrate an important milestone with Kenai Peninsula College, Kenai Peninsula Borough and the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. To mark fifty years of service to the Kenai Peninsula, the three key organizations are hosting a community barbecue from 4-7 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014 at KPC’s Kenai River Campus in Soldotna. Everyone is invited.
In addition to historical displays, a brief ceremony, tours, live entertainment, free food, games for children, and organization booths, everyone present will have an opportunity to win a commemorative coin set. The commemorative coins, representing each organization, were minted to mark this historic occasion and will also be available for sale.
The college will dedicate a time capsule that will be opened at the 100 year anniversary celebration in 2064. There will also be copies of KPC’s recently released 50 year history book available for purchase.
Overflow parking will be at the KRC Residence Hall and K-Beach Elementary located on E. Poppy Lane in Soldotna. A shuttle bus will run from the elementary school to campus throughout the celebration event. For more information, contact Suzie Kendrick, KPC Advancement Programs Manager, 262-0320.
