Thursday Troopers: Keeping Hoonah litter-free

Keeping our hometown streets litter-free is the goal of a group of volunteers called the Thursday Troopers. This activity is sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hoonah and supported with a grant from Alaskans for Litter Prevention and Recycling (ALPAR), with matching funds from the Hoonah Liquor Board.

Last summer, the group ended the year with a picnic at the recently spruced-up Lions Club Picnic Area, with transportation provided by the Icy Strait Lodge’s Red Trolley. This summer’s reward activity was a ride on the Hoonah Indian Association’s (HIA) Traditional Tlingit Dugout Canoe.  

Thursday Troopers want to thank all the sponsoring agencies for their support of our efforts, and to say a big Gunalchéesh to the Dugout Canoe crew of HIA.
