A big thank you to our Homer Bookstore folks, Lee, Sue, Jenny, Jennifer and Nancy, and to Caroline Venuti, who put together a great Mary Epperson Day birthday party in memory of Mary for the release of my book “Mary’s Gift: Alaska’s Remarkable Mary Epperson.”
The cake Caroline brought even had a piano on it! Thank you also to the many people who came to buy books, have a piece of cake and share stories about Mary. Proceeds from the book go to the Mary Epperson Student Scholarship Fund at our Kachemak Bay Campus, and our Bookstore folks are going the extra mile by contributing a percentage of sales to that fund as well.
We look forward to gathering at 2 p.m. this Saturday, June 25, at the Homer High School Mariner Theater for Mary’s memorial service, followed by a potluck reception in the Commons where we can all visit and share Mary stories. Bring finger food to share and join in honoring our truly remarkable Mary Epperson.
