Nikiski High School would like to thank the local businesses and agencies that have so generously given scholarships and awards to our students. We would also like to thank the representatives that attended our Awards Night to present them.
Just north of the Kenai city limits in Salamatof sits an old building surrounded by a dirt parking lot. The building was bought by the nonprofit organization Alaska Children's Institute for the Performing Arts four years ago. Renovation of the facility started at that time and thanks to the efforts of donors and the shop students of Nikiski Middle-High School much-needed improvements have been made. The building is far from renovated, however.

Families that are looking for fun on a Saturday afternoon seldom turn to local movie theaters if they have small children. With only two theaters in the area, each with two or three screens, kids' films are relatively few and far between. But that may change.
It's Kenai River Festival Time!
Good day to all of my Nikiski neighbors. This is my last Neighbors column. I have enjoyed sharing with you the news and special occasions of our great little town. I have also been lucky enough to have been stopped by many of you, just to comment on things or to tell me they read what I wrote each week. Thank you to all of you and have a great summer.
