The State ferry M/V Le Conte, which services Tenakee Springs, sailed from Juneau to Tenakee with a sold out passenger load.
The ferry spent three hours in Tenakee where the Deputy Commissioner of Marine Operations, General Manger of AMHS and Manager of AMHS Marine Operations joined the crew of the Le Conte and participated in a community wide potluck, enjoyed live music and attended a short ceremony where TSBA presented AMHS with a plaque.
Tenakee Springs sincerely appreciates the consistent and reliable service provided by AMHS.
Annual Wild Game Dinner
To show our appreciation for all of the Tenakee Springs volunteer firefighters and emergency medical services personnel, the Tenakee Springs Business Association hosts a wild game dinner/potluck each year. Menu items include buffalo, halibut, salmon, venison, moose, squid, octopus, shrimp, crab, duck, and goose, all prepared in a variety of delicious ways.
Many individuals throughout the community spend countless hours volunteering to attend meetings and drills and to respond to actual events. The TSBA wants the volunteers to know we value your community service. You all make Tenakee a safe place to live.
Annual Wounded Warriors and Veterans Fishing weekend
Our Veterans are a very important part of our community and this country. They keep America strong, safe and free. In an effort to pay homage to our local veterans and to assist in the facilitation of helping wounded warriors in the healing and recovery process the Tenakee Springs Business Association hosts an annual fishing trip and community dinner. This past year (2011) five local captains took a group of veterans and their families fishing. The result? Sixty (60) fine-looking salmon were successfully caught in a 3 ½ hour period. It was a beautiful weekend enjoyed by all.
Thank you for your service.
