MEETINGS
 

Below is a list of community meetings planned in the area 

 

 

- The Galena Sobriety Support Group meets at 7:00 pm each Thursday at the Louden Tribal Building in Galena. Coping with alcoholism is the main focus, but these meetings are intended for anyone dealing with any addiction. Unlike a therapy group, this is a peer support group for those with an addiction to meet and talk about their common struggles and solutions. Doors open at 6:50pm. You can contact Jim Lagattuta (907-656-7199) for any questions you might have. 

 

-The Sidney Huntington School Parent Advisory Committee will meet tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5 PM in the office of SHS principal Ken Essex (near the main entrance to the school.)  All parents of SHS students are invited to attend. Parent Advisory Committee meetings are a time to learn about current events within SHS and to provide feedback on school operations and the future of SHS. PAC meetings will happen on the first Wednesday of every month.  

 

NEW -There will be a public meeting at the Galena Community Hall tonight (Tuesday) starting at 7pm to discuss the National Disaster Resiliency Competition (NDRC) grant application. The State of Alaska is submitting an application and would like to include eligible projects for Galena. Please attend this important meeting. The community's input is needed.
