Dear Friend… (April 2022)

As daylight returns to Western Alaska, the work resumes. After long winter months of shoveling snow and chopping firewood, we emerge with strong backs and renewed vision for what the future can hold.

In March, the Iditarod race returned to Nome, bringing with it guests from near and far. The excitement in town was palpable: community members hosted and fed mushers, out-of-town reporters, and race personnel. Villagers flew to Nome to take part in the tournaments, shows, and fairs. As always, those who stayed home had a front row seat by the radio.

Your love for the mission once again energizes Western Alaska. Thank you for making it possible!
