The Raven Radio Rootbeer Float Party was a slurping success! Click here for a full screen slide show! We served up over 750 free root beer floats while musicians from the Sitka Fine Arts Camp rocked the Cable House. Kids and adults alike bobbed for apples, played cornhole and created gigantic bubbles! Huge thanks to Harry Race Soda Shop, Baranof Island Brewing Company, Sitka Sound Seafoods and Northern Sales who helped us provide a yummy thank you to Raven Radio listeners and members that really "float our boat!"

When we learned last week that Freda Aron was in hospice care, and then on Friday that she had died, the sorrow was short-lived. As regular listeners of "The Frankie and Freda Show" will recall, Freda was comfortable with her mortality, and -- while fully engaged with this life -- was more than just a little giddy about what awaited her in the next. She had two names on her dance card in heaven: her husband Richard Aron and Frank Sinatra. Only Freda knows who got the first dance!
