Talk of the Town

The community of Unalaska is a busy place to live.  Our community calendar is full of events and activities.  Talk of the Town is your source for coverage of community events and sports.  KUCB staff writes many of the stories, but we also accept contributions from community members for this section of our website.  Talk of the Town stories are often used on Flash! Unalaska, our weekly television show.  If you'd like to submit a story to Talk of the Town, contact Chrissy.

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.

High school students from Amy Purevsuren's class recently completed a journalism unit. They learned the basics of reporting and editing before going out to write their own features.

Listen to their stories:

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.

Annual USAFV Soup-Off Raises Over $18,000

Mar 28, 2018

Unalaskans Against Sexual Assault & Family Violence (USAFV) held the annual SOUP-OFF Fundraiser & Membership Meeting on Saturday, March 24, and it was a tremendous success, with about 120 people attending the event. USAFV was able to sell more than 90 memberships at the event, and between memberships/entry fees, auction sales, and door prize ticket sales, they raised over $18,000 dollars!

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.
