Hospice celebrates its volunteers 

The fireplace at the Hospice of Homer office on Pioneer Avenue glowed warmly as volunteers and staff gathered for the annual cookie/ornament exchange. Everyone shared beautifully decorated cookies and other assorted treats as the Stranger Strings Have Happened Quartet played holiday music.

The evening was dedicated to our committed volunteers for their continued support of Hospice and the people we serve. I want to thank each of our volunteers: every one of you bring a unique gift to Hospice and are so appreciated. 

I would also like to extend a thank you to Two Sisters Bakery and Safeway for providing goodies. And a special thanks to the Stranger Strings Have Happened Quartet: Linda Reinhart, Anne Nixon, Rachel Bilbo, Karman Claussen and Kitri Claussen for the wonderful music.

If you would like to become a Hospice of Homer volunteer or would like more information about the free of charge services Hospice provides, please call the HOH office at 235-6899. Donations can be mailed to: P.O. Box 4174, Homer, Alaska 99603 or go to the Hospice website (hospiceofhomer.org) to make a contribution.

Remember Hospice of Homer offers more than end of life services.
