The annual Hershey Track & Field Meet sponsored by North Peninsula Recreation was once again a huge success. On Friday May 13, approximately 300 participants from local area schools came to compete in both running and field events at the Nikiski High School Track. Thankfully, this year we were blessed with clear, sunny skies for the duration of the track meet. As a result of the cooperative weather we had a stadium full of happy participants and fans. We were also graced with an abundance of helpful volunteers. 052411 LETTERS 1 Peninsula Clarion The annual Hershey Track & Field Meet sponsored by North Peninsula Recreation was once again a huge success.

Track and field event a success



The annual Hershey Track & Field Meet sponsored by North Peninsula Recreation was once again a huge success.

The success of this program can be attributed to all these generous volunteers and staff who contributed their time and energy. Thank you!

Special thanks must also be attributed to Lisa Callahan and Richard Kelso of Nikiski North Star Elementary for letting us run field events during PE classes, and thanks to all of the teachers and administration that worked with and encouraged their students. We appreciate your support.

THE REC GUIDE

WINTER ACTIVITIES

If you think the Kenai Peninsula is beautiful in the summer, you should see it when cloaked under a thick blanket of white with the aurora borealis rippling through the celestial canopy above.

BERRIES OF THE KENAI PENINSULA

Whether intentionally seeking berries for jellies and jams or just out for a casual hike, residents and visitors will find the 50-some varieties of wild berries in Alaska hard to resist.

COMMON SENSE SURVIVAL

There’s adventure and beauty in the wild country, but also an element of risk.
