The 38th Distinguished Citizens Banquet Honoring Jerry Evans and Glenner Anderson was held on December 8th at the Westmark Gold Room.

The Fundraiser was a great success benefiting the community’s Scouting youth and the Midnight Sun Councils mission.

We would like to thank Craig Compeau, Mike Tinker, Johnny Hajdukovich, Karen Gordon, Cathie Harms Tordoff and Stacy Brandon for all their hard work putting on the event and making it successful.

We'd like to thank all the donors who sponsored and/or attended the dinner, those that helped behind the scenes, and those who gifted auction items.  All of you made a great impact on our Council.

We would also like to take the time to Thank our Honorees Glenner Anderson & Jerry Evans not just for their contributions to our community but also to Scouting in Interior Alaska!


Pictures of the banquet coming soon!




FYI, the RV went for $10,000 to a gentleman from Salcha.
