The Phoenix Chapter of the Alaska State Firefighters Association would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many local businesses that donated to support our dinner cruise and auction on Saturday, August 25. The Phoenix Chapter is a combined effort of Bear Creek, Moose Pass and Seward Fire Departments, and Seward Volunteer Ambulance Corps, in a joint association to provide advanced training and education for our emergency responders.
Thanks to a sold-out boat full of great community supporters and our generous auction donors, we raised nearly $8,500 that will support firefighter and EMT training in the Seward/Bear Creek/Moose Pass area. We would specifically like to thank the following businesses for their contributions, with a special thanks to Kenai Fjords Tours for making this event possible for the third year in a row!

Seward High Art students created new scenes out of old photos. For inspiration, students viewed the Abberant Art of Barry Kite. Kite is a contemporary artists who mainly reworks art history classics by cutting them up and combining them in humorous ways. Students also viewed triptych artwork from the past and were asked to make their collages in triptych form. Thanks to the Seward Library for donating encyclopedias and magazines.
