Ok folks…. we have tickets for the Historical Society’s Sheldon Chalet Rafflle! And there is someone here at the Desk from early in the morning until late in the evening if you’d like to come by and snag yours. We take cash or credit card (all monies to the Museum) and tickets are a mere $125 each for a one in 300 chance to win the 3 night/4 day adventure (helicopter ride included) to the Chalet up on Ruth Glacier. Whew! The winning ticket will be pulled at the Society’s upcoming Talkeetna Jeopardy event on October 26, but you need not be present to win. Although, that event is such a riot and such a great way to reconnect with Talkeetna and its history that it would be a shame to miss it!

We always recommend double checking with the particular venue/host organization to verify all events and happenings are still a ‘go.’ Things change fast…sometimes faster that we can update! Good places to find event information for Talkeetna – besides right here! – are the Talkeetna Chamber of Commerce Calendar of Events page and KTNA’s website under Today’s Announcements.
 
Take care!
