Many of you have seen the incredible preservation work that has gone into the Holy Assumption Church and National Historic Landmark in Kenai. Among the final work for this church is a state-of-the-art system to protect it from devastation by fire. The City of Kenai has generously appropriated a $20,000 challenge grant to help complete a fire suppression system for the Holy Assumption Church. This grant will match all donations up to $20,000 to help us reach our goal.
With the help of the Rasmuson Foundation, we are two-thirds complete with the installation of a Hi-Fog Mist system, the gold standard of fire suppression for cultural properties. We need your help to complete this project’s goal of raising $60,000 by May 1, 2016. Together we can protect the Holy Assumption and its historical artifacts which are part of our Alaskan culture.
We have come too far to lose Kenai’s National Historic Landmark to fire. In the recent past summers, we have seen the damage of fire on the Kenai Peninsula. The City of Kenai will match your donation dollar for dollar, thus doubling your gift.
