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.

Unalaska's high school auditorium was packed with an enthusiastic audience last Friday for a much-anticipated talent show.  The event was organized as a fundraiser for the Class of 2022, and sponsored by OptimERA, Inc. and Aleutian Chiropractic.

The event organizers required performers to rehearse this year, and the extra work showed.  The judges commented that it was very difficult to pick winners because everyone was so talented.  They awarded all of the performers with a "gold" chocolate bar. 

Additional prizes went to the following participants:

It was a record turnout for the 29th annual Ice Cream Social, which took place earlier this month at Unalaska's high school.

Local businesses and community members donated door prizes, but the ice cream stole the show.

Preschool teacher Joni Scott, who coordinated the event, said 75 gallons of ice cream were served throughout the afternoon.
