This summer marks the start of a three-year project to restore Unalaska's Holy Ascension Cathedral and its nearby structures.

Right now, project leaders are focused on the Bishop's House. It has sat idle since a previous renovation effort stalled out about 15 years ago.

"It's just been sitting here getting stale," said Al Williams, a retired preservation specialist who spent 34 years with the National Parks Service. "I'm working right now at trying to button up the exterior."

Over fifty Unalaskans gathered last Saturday at 2pm at the Tutiakoff Field to participate in the 2018 Color Run.

This year, Louella Tan of the Youth Alliance for a Healthier Alaska helped organize the run with D Kirchhofer from Unalaskans Against Sexual Assault & Family Violence. The event was also sponsored by the Iliuliuk Family & Health Services, and the Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association. Prizes for the event were donated by OptimERA.

The 8th Annual Dockside Discovery Day was last Wednesday, May 23rd at the Robert Storrs Small Boat Harbor. Coordinated by Missy Good from the UAF Alaska Sea Grant program, students from the Eagles View Elementary and from Unalaska City School spent the day learning about our local marine life and much more.

This year, there were nine activity stations with different organizations hosting and running each station.
