The Homer Chamber of Commerce’s November Business After Hours event is from 5-7 p.m. today at the Alibi, 453 E. Pioneer Ave.
Open to all chamber members, this will be a tailgate-style mixer and provide the opportunity to sample some of the Alibi’s most popular items, including monster chicken wings, a variety of sanwiches served “party sub” style, and hot and cold dips.
Those attending can catch the end of the Thursday night NFL matchup or stay for free line dancing lessons at 8:30 p.m.
Nelton and Megan Palma have owned and operated the Alibi since 2011.
The chamber’s double down raffle drawing will be at 6 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Elks Lodge. The chamber reports tickets are going fast. Tickets for the “Double Down” Cash Raffle are $100 each, tickets for the ATV are $35 each, or $130 for the raffle combo.
The chamber is looking for Homer-dedicated men and women to serve on its board of directors. There are five open positions beginning Jan. 1. Two are for one-year terms (filling mid-term vacancies), and three are for regular three-year terms. To be considered for one of the positions, email Patrice Krant at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will email the board form. These must be returned to the chamber no later than Dec. 5.
