July 4 is right around the corner!
It's not just the sun on campus this semester
The Juneau-Douglas 4th of July committee theme for 2009 is “8 Stars of Gold.” This year’s UAS delegation will be led by the Chancellor as the North Star. He will be riding his new scooter that he won at the Alumni and Friends Golf Tournament in Gustavus. Student services workers Rekann and Rick are sewing star costumes for marchers to wear, representing the eight stars of UAS: Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Management, Education, Career Education, Exchange and Study Abroad and Student Services. Marchers will hand out candy, UAS mini-pennants and cards inviting spectators to come on out and meet the totem pole carvers.
All UAS community members of all ages are invited to join the parade effort. If you’d like to help with preparations, march in the parade or both, please contact Katie Bausler at the UAS PR and Media Relations office: 796-6530.
