I hope you’ll enjoy my walk about town today – especially through our small boat harbor, which is covered in snow, and ice!  It is a cold, cold day at 5 degrees – unusually cold for Seldovia!  We were blessed with beautiful sun for the short day – and looking forward to fireworks tonight!  See you all there!

Alaska, The Last Frontier

“The Kilcher family settled in an isolated community outside of Homer, Alaska 80 years ago, seeking a more free and simple way of life. They live completely off the grid, with no running water and no electricity – and are proud of it.” – Discovery Channel

Tonight at 6:00pm and 8:00pm Alaska time, on the Discovery Channel – Check out this new reality show about life on a homestead right outside of Homer on the Kenai Peninsula!   This reality show is gaining even more attention, as it is about Jewel’s (singer/songwriter)  family – Yule Kilcher is her grandfather!  This will be another show that is close to home for us who live and love the Kachemak Bay area!

Be sure to check out Seldovia’s calendar to keep track of the many community events! With so many events and different programs, groups, and committees – it is difficult to stay on top of everything!    Please note that there are different ways to look at the calendar.

  • MONTH – Shows the whole month in a standard calendar format. You can click on each listing to view the details of the event!
  • WEEK – Shows the current week, highlighting again the current day, so you can see where you are in the full schedule of events, from the early morning to the late evening!
  • AGENDA – My favorite, as it just outlines each event in order – by the date.

Each of the pages operate in the same way, as every event is clickable, and in some cases will lead you to other web sites for more information or details. Please assist with keeping the calendar current by emailing Laurel with your information and details. (There is a direct link to her email at the bottom of each calendar view – so it is super easy!) You may submit information at any time, as she will enter as things come in, and she will be doing monthly updates!

Thanks Laurel and SVT for creating this great calendar for Seldovia!

Happy Winter Solstice!

Join us for this Fantastic Seldovia Tradition!

submitted by Jenny Chissus

Thank you to the many folks who sponsor our annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks Show! Every year it is a time when the whole community gathers to bring in the new year together, as friends and family.

The Swicks are leaving this week to purchase the fireworks up in Anchorage and are hopeful to have the continued support of the community to make it happen! Last year, they spent over $3,500 on a spectacular 20+ minute fireworks show for the community. Last time I heard from Roberta, they had only raised $400.

Please support this great Seldovia tradition, and give a call to Roberta and Alvin Swick 234-7473 or Doug and Kathy Giles at 234-7424.  It is not too late!  Thank You!

We’ll see you at the Fireworks Show on December 31st – midnight!
