Did you know that Anchorage has 10,946 acres of municipal parkland?! Take advantage of this heat wave and rid your kids (and yourself) of cabin fever at one of our 223 parks. Many of them have great winter amenities like ponds/skating rinks and sledding hills. Here’s a link to Anchorage Park Foundation’s Parks Directory to find a park near you. https://anchorageparkfoundation.org/directory/
Milk Day comes but once a year and we thought a Fun Facts would be a great way to celebrate. In 1878, the first glass milk bottle, the Lester Milk Jar, was patented. Milk would be sold for the first time in these glass bottles a year later, revolutionizing home milk delivery. Just a few years later, in 1884, Henry D. Thatcher would patent a different glass bottle with a cap. Particulate-free milk? Game changer.
