REMEMBERING DR. JULIUS "JAY" ROCKWELL, JR.
On July 24, 2015, one day before Julius' 97th birthday, there were three ceremonies to honor him. He had a 21-gun salute at the National Cemetery at Ft. Rich where some of his ashes were interred, a memorial service at St. Mary's Episcopal Church, and a party celebrating his life at Hilltop Chalet. Those attending the evening event created a piece of artwork that is hanging in the AWC office, and below is a photo of it and the memories people provided of his life and contributions.
What's going on at AWC this summer:
Vangie snipping the seed heads off of Reed Canarygrass (an invasive plant) by Chester Creek, 8/3/15
AWC received an Anchorage Parks Foundation grant to build monofilament recycling bins (Eagle Scout candidate Kyler Ince and AWC's Thom Eley)
Kyler is interviewed at Jewel Lake where one of the monofilament bins is deployed
One of the monofilament bins along Campbell Creek at Rakof is emptied! Monofilament line and a humongous lure (6/30/15)
