Ways to Connect

Last Saturday at 1pm in the PCR gym, the City of Unalaska Department of Parks Culture and Recreation and the UCSD Native Youth Olympics team held their first ever community Native Youth Olympics (NYO) meet, inviting Unalaskans to join in the competition.



The Unalaska Parks, Culture and Recreation teamed up with the Ballyhoo Lions Club for a fantastic Saturday filled with Easter cheer starting at 8am.

The Lions Club started the day off with a delicious pancake and egg breakfast as well as a “split the pot” raffle and face painting for the young ones.

The UCSD Business Professionals of America offered to help with set-up, cooking and cleaning for the event, and Lions Club President John Conwell was grateful for all of their help.

Conwell was unsure how many attended the breakfast but said the turnout was terrific.

Last Saturday at 1 pm, the Unalaska Public Library hosted an event to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday.

Kids in kindergarten through 4th grade filed into a conference room the library staff had transformed into a whimsical meadow filled with bright pink crepe paper flowers and a multicolored tree.

Participants sat excitedly as the library staff handed out bundles of colored coffee filters and conducted a guided flower-making tutorial.  

After a quick session of Seuss trivia curated by Librarian Karen Kresh, the main show commenced.

The 2018 Unalaska Health Fair was held Saturday, March 2nd at the elementary school gym from 1pm-4pm.
