Armchair Traveler: Cambodia Rising 12/2 @ 7p

Just as the world began to shut down due to COVID, Girdwood locals Jeff & Sharon Samuels were in Cambodia as part of a year long round-the-world adventure. Jeff will share photos and stories of he and Sharon’s visit. From the capital of Phnom Penh to the villages of the Mekong River and Tonle Sap Lake to the splendor of Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples, Cambodia has a wealth of culture and history to see and experience.

This free presentation is part of FVCS’s “Armchair Traveler” series, and made possible by a generous donation from our sponsors, longtime local Girdwoodians Sherry & Bob Dugan. 

Topic: Cambodia Rising with Jeff Samuels

FVCS 40th Anniversary Online Auction 12/1-15


Forty years ago Four Valley Community School began as an idea to build community and offer opportunities locally for residents of greater Girdwood.

Despite present day challenges, we plan on serving our community for now and forever, and are celebrating our 40th year with an Arts Auction Fundraiser.  All proceeds will go to support our programs, events, and classes and to keep them available locally. 

Local artists and crafters of all ages have come together to create pieces in support of our anniversary, and it is a perfect time to shop for the holidays or for yourself. 

Go to the Online Auction Site and log-in, bid it up, and celebrate 40 with us!

Tales of Winter Caretaking in the AK Bush

Social distancing got you down? Come share an isolation experience together. Join us via Zoom to see photos and hear stories of Jen and Mike getting their winter feet wet caretaking for remote Alaska lodges, from Bristol Bay to the Arctic. Hear what it is like to live and work in remote Alaskan bush locations, where daily life included shoveling snow off of roofs, filling wood sheds, reporting weather, and, perhaps most importantly, taking care of and entertaining themselves, miles away from neighbors, stores, and medical help.

This free presentation is part of FVCS’s “Armchair Travels” series, and made possible by a generous donation from our sponsors Sherry & Bob Dugan.
