Around Town: Voting day, Sobriety Celebration and CHS volleyball tournament

Shyla Krukoff wore the Chugach Hat during dance performances at Sobriety Celebration Nov. 11. The Chugach Hat is a recent acquisition to the Cordova Ikumat Dance Group and the Ilanka Cultural Center. The Chugach Hat was purchased through a generous grant from the Rasmussen Foundation through the Art Acquisition Fund, a program which gives grant money to museums in Alaska to purchase new artwork for their museum collections.
