Main Street in Bloom!

by Suzie Stranik

The happy new hanging baskets along Main Street went up last Sunday thanks to Jerry Stranik with a little help from a friend, Frankie Kashevaroff.   The baskets were donated to the City of Seldovia by Cathy and Dee Calvin of  Forget-me-Not nursery of Indian, AK!

Suzie Stranik did the necessary permission requests and the Chamber of Commerce purchased the brackets.  Peter Elvsaas with Seldovia Expeditors brought them down the highway at no charge!  And best of all, Shad Haller has promised that the Seldovia Fire Dept will keep them watered!   Suzie hopes the loosely formed garden club will help with dead heading during the summer to keep them blooming.  A big round of thanks to all who lent a hand to make our Main Street blossom!

Chamber of Commerce Honors…

By Peggy Keesecker, President,  Seldovia Chamber of Commerce

The Seldovia Chamber of Commerce has selected Clem Tillion, a pioneer of Halibut Cove and former commercial fisherman as our Old Crab for 2012. 

Clem became a leading state legislator for nine terms, helping to start the tradition of paying Alaskans an annual dividend from the state’s oil wealth before retiring as Senate president in 1981. He was appointed to the very first North Pacific Council in 1976, and served there for many years. He has lots of stories and much history.  You’ll have a chance to bid for the privilege of having lunch with Clem Tillion on the Fourth of July in Seldovia.

The Chamber would also like to announce the selections for the Citizen of the Year, the Business or Non-Profit of the Year and the Outstanding Community Contribution by a Young Person.

Every year nominations are open for various well-deserved honors in Seldovia.  There’s a month for locals to make nominations, and Chamber members do the voting. Continue reading
