Hospice of Homer recently honored our remarkable, committed volunteers at the Second Annual Volunteer Appreciation barbecue on the patio at our new office. I want to thank the following generous hospice supporters for helping to make the event a fun, successful evening: Kachemak Wholesale, Safeway grocery store and Two Sisters Bakery. What a great community we live in as evidenced by this generous support.

If you are interested in learning about the free of charge services Hospice of Homer provides the community or want to become a Hospice volunteer or make a donation to hospice, come visit us at our wonderful, new space located in  the lower level of 265 E. Pioneer, Suite 3. To get to the hospice office, take the driveway on the side of building that leads to parking lot in the back. Our door is on the right and sports a sign. You can also call us at 235-6899.

Remember to mark Aug. 8 on your calendar, the date the entire community is invited to “Celebrate with Hospice!” The open house will celebrate  hospice’s 30 year anniversary of providing services to the community. The  event will be held at the hospice office.  Hope to see you there.
