Bike rodeo was good, safe fun



The Kaleidoscope bike rodeo day this year was a blustery, cold one but was a wondrous experience for everyone. The students learned about bike safety from Kenai Police Officer Mitch Langseth, had helmets checked or purchased them from Nurse Jane Fellman with Safe Kids and enjoyed riding bikes on the course.

This event could not have been possible without volunteers. Special thanks go out to the following terrific contributors; Officer Langseth, Nurse Jane Fellman, the Moose Lodge volunteers (Bob Monroe Sr., Adreann Baker, Sadie Larson, Gretchen Larson and Nick Goff) who brought the barbecue and cooked for all the students and staff, Peterkin Distributors, Regal Foods and Three Bears who provided the hot dogs and buns, Steve's Chevron who provided the propane. Brian and Mark Beeson from The Bike Shop tuned up the students' bikes, Kaleidoscope PTA provided snacks, St. Elias Restaurant donated home made root beer.

Last but not least I would like to thank the parent volunteers; Luke Jackson, Misty Hamilton, Oliver and Terrah Amend, Michelle Olson, Jason and Lysa Diorec, Jan Marquis, Debbie Shaginoff, Emma and Sandy McMillan, Janice and Andy Villegas, Contessa Wolverton and Mandy Castillo.

Mary Lou Klauder, Kaleidoscope School Nurse





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.
