Thanks to those who make basket program possible

Another successful Thanksgiving Basket program was again concluded this year. What a wonderful town we live in. We would like to thank everyone who came and helped both Friday night and Saturday. You all were awesome.

Chris Story of Story Real Estate is always willing to go the extra mile to go and pick up the turkeys in Kenai. There were many people who contributed financial support to us and we appreciate all the effort put into this project right down to the $3 donation left in secret. Our thanks go to Homer Kachemak Bay Rotary Club, Share the Spirit, (Shari, you were there for us again), the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 16, and the American Legion Post 16, Sons of the American Legion, Catholic Women’s Guild, Young Marines Det, Homer Emblem Club No. 350, as well as many members of the community. The Methodist Church was so generous again this year by allowing us to utilize their facilities. Thank you to all. If someone was missed in the list, please forgive us, it is a very busy time.

We would like to wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving and be safe when traveling.

Fran Van Sandt and Amy Shumaker
