Sitka’s Alaska Day celebrations got underway early Saturday morning (10-18-14) with a ribbon cutting at the Sitka Sound Science Center to celebrate the renovation of the center’s Sage Building.
The building has a new roof, new windows, and a newly repaired exterior — the glass for the front doors arrived late Friday night, just in time to open them to the public on Saturday morning. Above, Trish White, of the Science Center board, addresses about a hundred community members at the ribbon cutting.
Rasmuson Foundation President and CEO Diane Kaplan was also on hand. The Foundation played a major role in funding the renovation, and Kaplan announced a surprise $10,000 grant at the ceremony
