From the GM’s Desk (January 2018)
“You make it possible for families in Western Alaska to strengthen bonds and deepen connections across generations. You are the reason why the voices and stories of elders and youth are being heard. Thanks to you, the sharing of faith, culture, and wisdom will continue to flourish for years to come. Through the intercession of St. Therese, we pray your new year continues to blossom with joy and deepening of relationships with your family and friends.”
Margaret DeMaioribus, General Manager
