This week's calendar ends in March--so spring equinox is only 3 weeks away! Longer daylight means more time for enjoying outdoor activities--and TRAILS will soon begin Wednesday Walkabouts again! Check out this week's calendar right here: weekly events February 24-March 3.pdf, and go get some sun on your face.
And here are two IMPORTANT HEADS UP announcements:
- Did you use CARTS* vouchers? There's an IMPORTANT TRANSPORTATION MEETING MARCH 5 for everyone interested in a Local Transportation Plan. CARTS is holding a Community Open House Monday, March 5, at Homer City Council Chambers to talk to the public about developing a Homer area transit plan (here's the flyer: CARTS Open House Poster_Homer.pdf). Drop in between 4 and 6 pm to talk with CARTS planning team members. Gather your friends, arrange shared rides, and head on over! (Call TRAILS if you need help with a ride to this meeting.) Being able to get from here to there when you need to is FUNDAMENTAL for all of us. For more information, call CARTS at 907-262-8900 or 951-784-1333. Or call ILC.
- If you've signed up for the TRAILS TRAIN TRIP scheduled May 4-6 (here's the flyer: Spring Train Ride to AK Heartland May 4-6.pdf and want to get 50% off the train fare based on having a disability, call TRAILS as soon as possible! We'll give you paperwork for your licensed health care provider to sign. Once your paperwork is signed, we'll send it to the Alaska Railroad--by mid March if possible. (We want to be sure disability-based discounts get processed in time.)
* (CARTS stands for Central Area Rural Transit System.)
