Winter Olympics athlete from Palmer, Alaska


Palmer's own Kerry Weiland played for the USA women's hockey team at the Winter Olympics. Here's a picture of her and the team on the ice, receiving their bronze medals. Kerry came to a Palmer Chamber of Commerce luncheon to speak, sign autographs, and she let everyone hold her medal. It looked kind of like a fancy crushed pop can as I saw it going around the room, but was surprisingly very heavy and beautifully crafted.
