Lindsay Keener, Certified Rolfer has moved to a new location. The Rolfing office is now located in the Benco building, between Paradisos Restaurant and Key Bank in Kenai.

Rolfing is a gentle and effective way to help alleviate most forms of pain and discomfort within the body. Through hands on tissue manipulation, assisted by low level cold laser therapy, we are able to eliminate inflammation, promote healing, and get the body back into a more balanced, aligned state which can resolve various forms of pain and discomfort. Call 907-252-9912 to learn more about Rolfing or to schedule an appointment.

Lemonade Day Alaska is pleased to announce that registration for Lemonade Day 2015 is now open to youth of all ages. Lemonade Day Alaska will take place on June 13. Lemonade Day is a free experiential program that gives youth from preschool through high school the skills needed to become successful entrepreneurs in the future. Youth can register any time before June 13, to get started and put their knowledge and skills to the test when they open their own lemonade stand to the public on Lemonade Day. Each lemonade stand owner keeps all revenue and is encouraged to save a little, spend a little and give a little to their favorite charity.

Lemonade Day Alaska is presented by the University of Alaska Center for Economic Development, the University of Alaska Anchorage College of Business and Public Policy and Wells Fargo. For a complete list of sponsors and partners, as well as information about registration and ways to get involved, visit the Lemonade Day Alaska website at http://alaska.lemonadeday.org/, or call 907-786-5419.
