Boy Scouts from Juneau Troop 11 would like to thank Kirby Day and Princess Cruises for helping them raise funds by recycling aluminum. Each week for the last several years two Princess ships have sorted their trash and donated the crushed aluminum cans to the Scouts. The funds raised have helped local scouts go camping, attend Eagle River Scout Camp and the National Scout Jamboree in Virginia. In this photo, scout leaders Doug Larsen and Keith Pahlke, and Scouts James Gamez, Shaun Nesheim, Nick Waldo, Jake Pahlke, Griffin Bozarth and Logan Hulse, are preparing to collect four heavy boxes of crushed cans. With them are Kirby Day along with Captain Tony Yeomans and Environmental Officer Fazilette Khan of the Diamond Princess.
