Long history requires visionaries

Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic wants to give thanks to the Homer News for recognizing our work — past and present. We also want to give our thanks to our community. There have been countless individuals that have given their time and support over the last 30 years because they believe that the mission of KBFPC is important. Though we would never be able to name everyone, we wanted to acknowledge a few of our founders and leaders:

Carole Hamik, Susan Arndt, Annie Williams, Dan White, Sara Allison, Paula Korn, Paul Raymond, Dana Whittaker, Phil Price, Guila Tortora, Lynne Burt, Jim Meesis, Nell Gustafson, Donna Fenske, Bonnie Jason, Carri Thurman, Tarri Thurman, Stephanie Silianoff, Judy Flora, Kate Finn, Diana Carbonell, Bonnie Betley, Sara Berg, Gail Radcliffe, Jane Conway Alberts, Amy Seitz, Donna Rae Faulkner, Renee Alvarez, Sara Jackinsky, Sara Reinert, Mary Lentfer, Mary Marshburn, Susan Kernes, Melon Purcell, Mary Lou  Kelsey, Bill Bell, Kim Smith and Michelle Waneka — without your vision, dedication and hard work we would never have gotten this far. 

In great regard, 

Morgan Sicilia 

KBFPC board president
