It takes a village to feed a community and it takes a community to share the spirit. We are very thankful for such a supportive community of more than a hundred volunteers and donors that helped the Share the Spirit Spaghetti Feed successfully reach its goal. All the proceeds went to the holiday baskets for those less fortunate in our community.
There were too many wonderful, hard-working volunteers to name, but a huge thank-you goes to you all. We also would like to thank all the generous businesses who shared their support: Cafe Cups, Captain Pattie’s, Caribou Restaurant, Cosmic Kitchen, Cub Scout Troop 555, Don Jose’s, Dimond Center Hotel, Duncan House, Elks Club, Fat Olive’s, Fresh Sourdough Express, Fritz Creek General Store, Girl Scout Troops 564, 935 and 967, Grant Aviation, Homer Bed & Breakfast Association, Homestead Restaurant, Kachemak Wholesale, Land’s End, Panarelli’s, Mermaid Cafe, McNeil Canyon Meat Co., Otter Room, Peterkin Distributors, Save-U-More, Starvin Marvins, Sysco Distributors and Two Sisters Bakery.
If you didn’t get a chance to participate, you can still donate at Share the Spirit, P.O. Box 3218, Homer, AK 99603 or drop it off at Wells Fargo. Or join us packaging and wrapping holiday baskets this Friday, Dec. 21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.-ish.
And finally we would like to thank Shari Daugherty, who is the greatest elf of all, for introducing us to this community and helping us make the spaghetti feed a success.
Happy holidays,
Rick and Sharlene Cline
