  • It’s National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Thank you to those who served between Nov. 1, 1955 and May 15, 1975.
  • Saturday is the actual date when Seward bought Alaska from Russia in 1867.
  • National Tsunami Warning Center Open House is Saturday, March 30, 1-4 pm at 910 Felton Street in Palmer. The center invites the public and the media to an afternoon of tsunami education at the center responsible for warning both continental coasts of the United States and Canada. Guests will be able to meet the people who stand watch and issue the warnings; learn about tsunamis and how the waves propagate; tour a real-time seismic observatory; talk to staff and emergency managers about the warning process; learn nature’s warning signs and how to prepare. Activities provided for all ages.
