Cooling Center Open for Elders in Juneau
Times: 8:00 AM-5:00 PM
Location: Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall (320 West Willoughby Avenue • Juneau, AK)
Last week, the National Weather Service issued a special weather warning for a potential heat wave that could affect many Southeast Alaska communities. Although the heat wave has been downgraded, we are still expecting above normal temperatures reaching the upper 70s.
To ensure our Elders are comfortable, Tlingit & Haida has opened the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall to serve as a cooling center. The hall will be open June 27-29, 2022 from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM and visitors will be asked to wear a mask.
If you are an Elder in Juneau and need relief from the heat, stop by the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall to stay cool and enjoy air conditioning, food and drinks, door prizes and good company!
