Henrys hoping for a wrap-up meeting with volunteers in Skagway sometime next week, those interested can call him at 983-2854. DL
Top, Tony Scott Pierce and the Valley of the North Wind Boys play a set, the Spirit Dancers from Haines entertain some folks in the Beer Garden; playing with fire, Donna Snyder and Linda Cone exhibit their expertise in fusing glass for beads at the festival; and Yasha Saldi goes airborne, as Gavin Murphy takes a break and Sadie Murphy bounces off to the side in the kids zone.
