Celebrating Harold Newcomb

Honoring his legacy. This week,United Way of Mat-Su made a donation on behalf of Harold Newcomb's friends and family towards the Newcomb Park Playground on Wasilla Lake.

A check was presented in the name of Valley Rotary Club charter member Harold Newcomb to the Wasilla Sunrise Rotary Club who built the inclusive Newcomb Park Playground this past summer. United Way of Mat-Su would like to recognize Harold Newcomb's family and friends for their generous support and say a big thank you to Robin Ouellette, Harold's daughter, Mat-Su Title Insurance, Gene & Allayne Dinkel, Mat-Su Borough School District, and Phyllis & Weldon Leckwold, for the donation they made to our organization. Thank you so much.

Harold was one of United Way's Board members and received the 1998 Dorothy A Jones Volunteer of the Year Award. We are not only thankful for his service and dedication to United Way but to the whole community.

Dear Cherie:

Thank you so much for your excellent presentation to the Wasilla Sunrise Rotary Club this morning (Oct. 1st).   Your message about United Way was very well received by our Club.

The $705 check in the name of Valley Rotary Club charter member, Harold Newcomb, was a huge surprise.  The Inclusive Playground at Newcomb Park is now a valuable community asset.  Thank you for the contribution toward that endeavor.  :)

Cherie, thanks so much for your extraordinary efforts in the Community - Rotary, United Way, VPA, etc.

Sincerely, Dan Kennedy, President of Wasilla Sunrise Rotary Club 2013-2014
