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!

Its raining, the Summer Market is open and we’ve got great, just picked, Organic Produce. This week we have: Organic: Shelled sweet peas, Red-leaf Head Lettuce, 3 varieties of Beets, Purple and Orange carrots, Snow Peas, Broccoli, Green Beans, Cabbage, Spaghetti Squash, Cauliflower, Sweet Pumpkin, and some of organic herbs. Hot house Tomatoes and Cucumbers. Produce is available Thursday through Saturday until we run out. We will be closed on Sundays for the rest of the season, but since produce should be available through October, we’re going to try to stay open Thursday-Saturday as long as the community comes to support us. We will have bulk potatoes and onions as the season progresses. Of course, there’s still savory Nachos and Gifts in the little red house and we just love to see your smiling faces! Abby Wentworth will be at the market this Thursday with her new Earth Flags and Art—stop by a say hi to her sister who is visiting. The market is located at 312 5th Ave., open Thursday-Saturday 10am -4pm. For information contact Joanie at 760-815-8498 or email@example.com
