Invitations to Participate
Community Day on Campus and Seacoast Relay
by Tish Satre, Student Services:
Saturday May 23rd is Community Day at UAS-Juneau, a collaboration between Juneau Jazz and Classics, the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council and UAS. It is a festival of music and family fun. Non-profits with kid friendly activities are encouraged to set up tables at no cost. We also want to feature our UAS programs and activities. A big hit last year were live ceramics demos in the sunny courtyard. If you or your department would like to be involved (deadline to reserve May 8) please contact Nancy DeCherney, nancy@jahc. org at the JAHC to reserve your spot. Kid friendly attractions encouraged. There will be food and fun from 10am-4pm. If not a table, mark your calendars to bring your family. It’s a great day on campus. Last year over 1500 visitors!! UAS Dining Services will have BBQ lunch and Ice Cream Bar and Admissions will be there too. How about you?

I am organizing the 19th Annual Sea Coast Relay again and it will take place on May 23rd. It is a 5-person relay that starts at 9:00 am at the Lena Picnic area and ends at UAS during Community Day. This 23 mile relay follows a scenic coastal route along Lena Loop Road and the Auke Recreation Area access road. This year the race will follow a course towards the Mendenhall Glacier where teams will turn around and run back towards the University, but not before experiencing the beauty of an out and back on the Kaxdigoowu Heen Dei (Mendenhall river trail). It is a fun event that can bring up to 150 people to the campus to take part in the campus activities. Registration forms are available at the Student Activities Center and from the Southeast Road Runners website (www.southeastroadrunners.org). If anyone would like some information, they can contact me at sltamone@uas. alaska.edu.
