Thursday, September 04 2014

It takes a village, and many people contributed to the Hearts and Hands sponsored concert that rocked Unalaska on Friday, August 29. Nashville’s Sarah Peacock is a rising star whose original country rock songs have been winning national awards and propelling her on a grueling national tour. She visited Unalaska briefly in February and returned this week with Josh Daubin on djembe. Together they performed an assembly for Eagle’s View Elementary School and held workshops for Unalaska’s aspiring musicians.

The Heart of the Aleutians Festival was held Saturday, August 16th. The annual festival included yard and group games, a dunk tank, hamster balls, an inflatable bounce house and obstacle course, food, prizes, local vendors, and live music. It was all hands on deck this year as the city’s Parks, Culture and Recreation staff (including library, aquatics center, and community center employees and volunteers) all pitched in. Luckily, the weather held up and the community members gathered at Kelty Field were able to fully enjoy their Heart of the Aleutians experience. Thank you to everyone who made this event a success!
