Another holiday season has passed and once again our Homer community looks forward to a new year. Though these types of letters have been consistent through the years, it remains ever worthy of redundancy. Once again the people and businesses of Homer have reflected the very essence of what Share The Spirit is all about.
The Share the Spirit spaghetti feed was very successful at generating a significant amount of revenue to help in the goal of providing a wonderful Christmas for many needy families. There are few places that are more emblematic of the phrase, “It takes a village,” than our area. We’d like to name the hundreds of people who came to support the effort as well as the dozens of people who gave generously of their time but it would be too lengthy.
We would, however, like to thank those businesses and organizations who, despite responding to many worthwhile requests for donations throughout the year, came through once again in a big way: Maura’s, AJ’s,The Homestead, Elks Lodge, Duncan House, Alice’s Champagne Palace, Caribou, Fritz Creek Store, Starvin’ Marvins, Land’s End, Vida’s, Two Sisters, Cosmic Kitchen, Bidarka, Cups, K-Bay Caffé, The Grog Shop, Fresh Stop Burrito, Radio Shack, Homer Saw and Cycle, Homer’s Jeans, The Bagel Shop, The Classic Cook, Ptarmigan Art Gallery, Fireweed Gallery, Kachemak Oysters, Ulmer’s, Kiki and the Fireweed sixth graders, Tina Seaton and the Girl Scouts, Homer Swing Choir, Rachel and Homer High cafeteria, Sally Wills and Dave Gerard.
If we missed somebody we offer our sincerest apology. Once again, we would like to thank the people, businesses and organizations of Homer for reminding us all that one of biggest reasons we love where we live is because we have a real community.
