My Garden Experience

When my family and I started our garden we knew it would be a commitment, but we didn’t know what to expect. The first year, we had to make our garden beds. We had to get measurements and figure out exactly what we wanted to plant and where to put it. We had decided to plant tomatoes, snap peas, pumpkins, cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, beats, cauliflowers, broccoli, strawberries and rhubarb.

Chugiak-Eagle River Public Library

The Chugiak-Eagle River Public Library is a peaceful place to be. Many people enjoy the library because it is quiet and a good place for studying or reading. The Chugiak- Eagle River Library hosts many cool events. They have storytime three times every week also a family movie night every Friday, with popcorn and candy! During the summer they have a summer reading program with prizes, as well as other family events. Four librarians work at the Chugiak-Eagle River Public Library, and many volunteers. You have to be 13 years or older to volunteer. If you do volunteer, you work about 2 hours a day on whatever days of the week you can make it to the library. Tuesday is the best time to volunteer because the library has been closed for two days, so there are a lot of books that need to be reshelved.

Anchorage Chamber Music Intensive

This summer, from July 26 to August 5, something amazing happened. Thirty-seven students and seventeen instructors from all over the globe gathered at UAA for the fifth annual Anchorage Chamber Music Festival. From the first day of the program were immersed in into daily lessons, technique classes, rehearsals, and coaching. With only a week to get to know other members of the group, learn the music, and improve our technique, I was a little unsure of how this teaching method was going to work. However, by the last day, I was blown away by how far we had all come.

Supporting Our Community

Since the 1930s when Chugiak-Eagle River was founded, the once tiny settlement has flourished. Dirt paths have become roads, and empty land is populated with homes. Today, CER has grown into a successful community. Much of this success can be attributed to the tireless efforts of volunteer organizations that have taken root here. Without these organizations, many of the things we take for granted would disappear.
