March 2008. Talking about throwing baby showers and donating the gifts to young Army wives and possibly a crisis pregnancy center. And, um, no. No radio microphone in the delivery room. LOL -
[Bob] Wants KWHL to throw me a baby shower. I say “yes” , if the gifts can go to these young Army wives who don’t have much, they’re far from their families, the dads aren’t there for the newborns first months , etc. And now Ft. Wainwright ‘s aviation unit was notified of a four month extension on deployments. Would u assign someone to work with Bob on that angle? Thanks
Yes, I’ll give him a call initially and then have someone work with him on details. Love the idea about the young army wives.
Governor- I have been asked about a baby shower in Juneau. I have already received offers to host it. Please let me know if you would be interested in a similair event. I too think the idea of helping young Army wives is fantastic.
I would be interested in such a thing in Juneau – perhaps a different group of recipients for this area? Maybe to benefit the local Crisis Pregnancy Center?
I spoke w/Bob. He agrees on the donation and thinks it’s great. He brought up the possibility of doing it after the baby is born so the baby would be present as well. He’s envisioning ALOT of people, i.e. Egan Center and I’m not too sure about that idea. We’ll work out details once timeframe is determined.
He also asked again about the live audio recording of the birth and what you thought. A private moment?
Don’t want to take this too far. Kinda wish I hadnt had to tell anyone, but crazy to think it could have been hidden long. No- no Egan, and I’m not going to assume this will be as smooth and easy as the other kids’ births, so can’t imagine inviting in a rock radio microphone.
August 15, 2008, Juneau, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today announced she will attend a baby shower in Trig Palin’s honor next week and that all gifts will be donated to help military families.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Family Ties Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit organization created to provide immediate support for the military families of wounded service members deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom. The event is being hosted by local morning radio personalities Bob and Mark from 106.5 KWHL.
“My family has been so blessed by the arrival of Trig. It is my honor to share that blessing with our men and women in uniform through this event ,” Governor Palin said. “I invite all Alaskans who’d like to support our wonderful military families to participate.”
The event will take place at Romano’s restaurant, on Fireweed Lane at C Street, on Monday from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited. Romano’s restaurant will donate a portion of the sales from the evening to the Family Ties Foundation.
