Kenai River Clean Up:

This event has become a hit with the community and Connections does our best to play our part to help the cause. We’re currently recruiting student and parent volunteers to help clean up the river bank and make a positive impact on our community. Volunteers will meet at the Soldotna Visitor’s Center parking lot on May 9th at 11am. We will clean for a minimum of 1 hour, and we will provide a lunch after the cleaning is complete. Bags & gloves will be provided, please wear waterproof shoes or boots and dress for the weather. If you have questions contact Mark Wackler at mwackler@kpbsd.k12.ak.us or 714-8880.
