Central Peninsula Rotarian Presidents Meet and Plan
Beginning July of 2014, the new Presidents of the Kenai, Soldotna, and Kenai River Clubs stepped into their leadership roles:  Scott Hamann/Kenai; Jodi Stuart/Soldotna; and Diane Taylor/Kenai River.
            The three of us were able to connect at the District Conference meeting earlier that year, and set up a plan to establish a monthly meeting of the three of us.  The purpose of these meetings was to facilitate collaboration and understanding of what other Rotarians in our communities were doing. (The three clubs are within approximately 12 miles of each other!)

Soldotna Rotarians Bring Beauty to Area Businesses

The logistics of cutting nearly 60 2-ton blocks of ice and getting them set up for ice carvers to work their magic is a daunting task. As the lake freezes it has to be kept free of snow so the ice will freeze deep and clear, an extra challenge in a record snow fall year with weeks of rain and thawing temperatures in between. An idea that began some 14 years ago to enhance the Peninsula Winter Games and winter visitation to the area by Soldotna Rotarians Jerry Near, Ed Krohn, and Norm Blakeley, the ice carving has become a winter tradition for the area.
