I got so swept up Friday in our first TRAILS Crafts at Captains that I forgot to send out this week's calendar! So here it is! weekly events January 8-13.pdf
Crafts at Captains will become a regular TRAILS thing--a very informal time to drop by, say hi, and try out a new skill. Here's a pic from last Friday--when Barbara Smallwood inspired us to make Dreamcatchers.
Just wanted to share these photos from the December 27 TRAILS' WILD THINGS celebration, where we made edible ornaments for wildlife. After making ornaments and hanging them in the woods, we warmed up and roasted marshmallows around a campfire. These pics are worth a thousand words...
We’ll try to make this a special year by continuing to offer activities that help EveryBODY enjoy healthy happiness and happy health! We love input, and if you'd like to lead an activity, we're here to help that happen!
For example, join TRAILS on Friday (January 5) for our first “Crafts at Captain’s,” where Barbara Smallwood will help us learn how to make dreamcatchers! TRAILS will supply the basic materials, but bring feathers, beads, shells, yarns, or other special items to decorate your dreamcatcher.
And check out other fun events on this week's calendar: weekly events December 30-January 6.pdf
This week's calendar still has lots of fun things happening--you can check it out by clicking here: weekly events December 23-30.pdf.
And be sure to join TRAILS for a WILD THINGS celebration on Wednesday, December 27th.
First we'll make edible decorations like those in the photos at left, which are nutritious for local wildlife and can provide a little winter boost for our birds and mammals.
Then we’ll decorate Eaglefell Park (next to Devony’s) with our wildlife decorations.
And finally we’ll gather around a campfire to roast marshmallows and enjoy the woods.
Meet at the ILC parking lot at 1 pm to carpool.
Call Devony at the ILC, 235-7911, for more information. Or leave a voice message or text at 299-3244.
Oh my goodness, there's so much happening this coming week! For holiday activities, check out events on December 15, 16 (tomorrow, there's TONS of fun stuff), 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, & 23. Here's your calendar: weekly events December 16-23.pdf
Actually, the first night of the Garden of Lights and Christmas Music event is tonight, at Bear Creek Winery. As I mentioned in an earlier email, let me know right away if you want to go to the Garden of Lights NEXT Friday (December 22) from 5 to 7 pm. I'll arrange transportation from ILC to Bear Creek Winery and back for as many folks as I can. (Email me at email@example.com or call or text me at 299-3244.)
And if you’re curious about the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count, that event is happening tomorrow (Saturday, December 16). If you want to see what the bird count is all about, meet up at Islands and Ocean at 8:30 am tomorrow, and you'll join a group that will be looking and listening for birds at designated locations. At 4:30, all groups will get back together at I&O to share results and hot soup. It’s quite an adventure!
Phew! I'm worn out just CONSIDERING all the things happening this week! So have fun! And be happy that days will soon be getting longer! YAY!!

In fact, we'd love to have you join TRAILS for a 2-part WILD THINGS Holiday Celebration.
What a wonderful gathering we had at Islands and Ocean on Wednesday afternoon. Over 60 "framily" members (friends+family) came together for the TRAILS and JOURNEYS Thanksgiving celebration. And over a dozen hardy souls made it down to Bishop's Beach to enjoy the beautiful afternoon with pie around a fire. Thank you all for bringing your wonderful energy to share with EVERYONE! And Thank you Islands and Ocean for all your generosity!
Now, look at how busy you can be this coming week, culminating with the Nutcracker Fair next weekend! weekly events November 25-December 2.pdf And don't forget that Yvonne and Russ could really use some community love and support--their fundraiser is tomorrow evening (Saturday, Nov 25th) at Alice's.
Holiday get-togethers begin in earnest this coming week, and Tela and I wish every one of you a Thanksgiving filled with people and activities to be grateful for. I know I'm always grateful that every day I get to experience this beautiful place and amazing community!
And no one need miss out on a great Thanksgiving meal. Wednesday, TRAILS and Journeys host THANKSGIVING at 11:30 at Islands and Ocean. We’ll enjoy delicious dishes served with a helping of thankfulness. After the main meal, we’ll stroll down to Bishop’s Beach to enjoy the beauty of a wintry afternoon on Beluga Slough, followed by dessert at the picnic pavilion around a big, toasty fire. And on Thursday, Homer United Methodist Church offers THANKSGIVING food and fellowship at its monthly 4th-Thursday community dinner.
As always, this town is full of activities we can enjoy; here's the calendar of next week's highlighted events: weekly events November 18-November 25.pdf
