Unalaskans filled the Museum of the Aleutians (MOTA) galleries last Thursday during an open house hosted by the museum's seven board of directors.

The museum remains closed to the public, but a seasoned interim director has been taking stock and setting a new course for the 17-year-old institution.

The most entertaining television event of the year is right around the corner!  It's the Channel 8 Auction and it's coming to Unalaska on February 26 and 27, live from the Burma Road Chapel. We hope that you'll make a party out of it: invite your friends over, tune in, bid high and bid often to support community television. We'll have lots of great items again this year and our staff and volunteers can't wait to bring you another great show!

Lanterns Released to Honor Devon Schaaf

Feb 8, 2016

On Friday, February 5, 2016, the City of Unalaska Parks, Culture, and Recreation Department (PCR) sponsored a memorial lantern release to honor the life of Devon Schaaf.

Devon grew up in Unalaska and moved to Montana in the summer of 2013 to begin 6th grade. Devon maintained close ties with this community and had many friends on the island. Devon passed away in January 2016.

The annual PCR Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration was Monday January 18th at 7pm. The theme was “Joining Hands Across Lands” and the event was hosted by Carlos Tayag, the PCR coordinator. There were several impressive dance performances, readings from the UCSD poetry contest winners, and the high school band rounded out the multicultural evening with a selection from a Jewish dance song called “Rikudim” led by Kerry McNamera.
