Thank You’s are plentiful this week. We would like to thank the Leadership Council of TYC and TRR for hosting two wonderful Easter events.

Dr. Moriarty Easter Egg Hunt was held at the Alaska Sealife Center. We were once again so pleased with the amazing turn out for this fun family event. Our event sponsor, Dr. Moriarty, provided us with the insides of the 2000 eggs hidden by the Easter bunny earlier that day with his helpers, Hallee Schoening, Donna Hinders, Ella Stefan, Alaina Armstrong, & Vitali Sturdy. Other supporters of this free community event were Ukanuzit, the Easter baskets, Safeway the basket grass, the American Legion for the $1 coins all participants were able to get. And of course the Alaska Sealife Center for the use of their facility.
