    Howdy Everybody,

    I hope you're having a happy, thoughtful, sweet Memorial Day with friends and family!  (I've spent the weekend helping settle in a new housemate and her HORSE .  That makes 5 ponies for TRAILS to visit up here at Bay Ridge Ranch.)

    No highlighted activities this Memorial Day weekend except last Saturday's Farmers Market, but things start hopping again tomorrow--Tuesday--with Libraries ROCK.  And this calendar takes us into June!  Here's the calendar: weekly events May 27-June 2.pdf  

    It sure has started to feel like summer. That means TRAILS will be saddlin' up and ridin' off into the Cooper Landing sunset for our annual Alaska Horsemen's Adventures weekend. It's one of our favorite One Hit Wonders, check out others at:

    For other fun things to do this week, how about celebrating “Libraries Rock” or the Farmers Market on Wednesday and Saturday (including Kids doing the sales next Saturday) or a big garage sale at Faith Lutheran Church. And of course, June's first Friday means it's time for a lovely stroll through Homer's art galleries from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on Friday. And don't forget, you can always check out recreation offered through City of Homer Parks and Recreation at this link
