Thanks to Soldotna Area Senior Citizens supporters

The Soldotna Area Senior Citizens, Inc. had a Fall Round-up fundraiser on September 9, 2017. The fundraiser was very successful and well attended. There were door prizes, silent auction items, and out-cry auction items. The out-cry items were auctioned off by Senator Peter Micciche, who was accompanied to the fundraiser by his family and staff. In addition to Senator Micciche, we appreciate the individuals, volunteers, companies, and vendors from Soldotna, Kenai, Kasilof, and Funny River that contributed items for the auctions and door prizes.
