Incoming Gov. Mike Dunleavy is moving to Juneau, and he’s holding an open house and celebration at his new home next Tuesday.
From 3-6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, the doors of the Governor’s Mansion will be open to anyone and everyone who wants to stop by. It’s expected to be a seasonal affair, with cookies, candy and even possibly some carolers, Jeff Turner, a spokesperson for the Dunleavy administration, said.
People with special needs and those who are elderly can get there starting at 2:30 p.m., Turner said. To set that up, people have to call the governor’s office in advance. That number is 465-3500, and people should ask for the governor’s residence when they call to RSVP.
The U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Forest Service recently flew up three large Christmas trees from Wrangell that currently stand on the veranda at the mansion. There will also be a bell ringer from the Salvation Army there, accompanied by a red kettle for donations.
