Kari Sagel, Jessica Christianson, and Norm Campbell discuss next Tuesday’s (1-15-19) re-dedication of the Baranof Elementary School saltwater aquarium (5:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m., with a 15-minute ceremony). There will be an unveiling of a piece by 23-year reading volunteer and textile artist Nancy Ricketts, and a free hot-dog feed.
