Summer Reading Programs are hosted at libraries across the country to keep kids reading over the summer, encourage reading for fun, and combat the “summer learning slide” that happens while school is out. This year, the Unalaska Public Library expanded our yearly elementary program to include preschoolers, teens, and adults, with the goal of encouraging the entire community to read over the summer.

Twenty teams came out to play extreme golf, Aleutian-style,  in the hills of Unalaska’s Pyramid Valley on August 8 and 9.  The annual Tundra Golf Classic is a fundraiser for local nonprofit Unalaska Community Broadcasting.

Based on the honor system and score cards turned in at the end of the second day,  teams from the U.S. Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment and North Pacific Fuel tied for the overall tournament win, both at 8 under par.  Second place went to Team Matson at 6 under par and third place to Harbor Welding’s Grey Team at 5 under par. Nathan Palmer took the Closest to the Pin competition, at 4 feet 6 inches, and Tony Carrillo won the Longest Drive contest at 304 yards.  Congratulations to all! (click here to read more)
