Excellence In Education Awards & Dinner
March 26th, 2019

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Please consider donating 12 same-type items to include in a Centerpiece basket for the winners of the Excellence in Education Awards dinner March 26th. This might include gift certificates, office supplies, food/candy items, etc.

We honor 1 staff from each of the ASD schools in the Chugiak-Eagle River community nominated by their Principal and Staff! More so than ever, this type of appreciation is needed!

Additionally, if you have anything Positive/Supportive to say about a school, specific staff, or teacher that can be written in letter format to be included in our Awards Presentations to each Principal the Chamber would love to have those as well. Send to PO Box 770353 Eagle River, or by email to

Thank You.
