A Tribute to Charlotte Jensen
The market is named for Charlotte Jensen as a tribute to her many years of service and her love of all things Rondy. She was a Past President, Former Lady Trapper, Vern Johnson Award-winner, and long-time board member of Greater Anchorage Inc. since the 1970’s. Charlotte was also Chairperson of the Merchandise Committee and the Native Arts Market.
Char was an integral part of Rondy’s recent return to success. She had faith that the festival was important to too many people and that Alaskans wouldn’t let it disappear. She was always available to give her time and expertise whenever she was asked. Her history and experience were a source for all to draw on and her loss is felt on many levels. She is greatly missed.
