It is not uncommon to read in your paper about the wonderful attributes of the citizens in our Golden Heart city. So many have chosen to live and remain in Fairbanks because of the people. 

Now that the holidays are over, the residents at Denali Center would like to express our gratitude for the overwhelming generosity of the Fairbanks community. We wish we could mention the names of every individual and group that shared their joy during the month of December. 

We appreciate all the gifts, the carolers, volunteers who came to decorate, help with crafts, provide food for parties, play music, make treats, give special performances, and yes, give more gifts.

Seeing the children, school groups, and other guests cheered our holidays.

We at Denali Center also want to acknowledge the wonderful staff who go out of their way to share as our extended family and the volunteers who make life meaningful throughout the year as they provide visits, hold church services, accompany us on outings, bring jigsaw puzzles and add to our fun.
