And speaking of the BIG READ, this year's book is Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? which is a "graphic novel" memoir by Roz Chast focusing on her parents' aging. As we all know, aging is for EveryBODY, so it DOES make sense to talk about it. If you'd like to join TRAILS at the BIG READ kick off and could use a little help making that happen, give me a buzz.
Maybe the best way to bring in the New Year is to go outside and say “YAY” for our beautiful snow, then grab your skis or snowshoes and head out on one of the many trails around town, from the Baycrest Ski Trails in the Homer Demonstration Forest and Diamond Creek Recreation Area to the Eveline Trails out East End Road. And if you want to skate or dance or do crafts or learn to move more freely or even fix your PC or Mac, check out this week's calendar right here: weekly events December 29-January 5.pdf and go for it!
Join TRAILS on Christmas Eve afternoon (Monday) for free skating (including skate rentals) at the Kevin Bell Arena. All it costs is a canned food item to donate to the Food Pantry. We will leave the ILC parking lot at 1:30. Let Devony know at 299-3244 if you’re interested in getting a ride between ILC and the arena. (Also, I'm trying to confirm with the arena that they'll make available the ice hockey sledge and sticks that TRAILS loaned them so folks in wheelchairs or with other mobility issues could skate too!)
Check out the calendar here: weekly events December 22-29.pdf for plenty more fun more activities to fill you with holiday cheer.
Lots of fun stuff this week! This and next Friday and Saturday, you can enjoy the beautiful holiday Garden of Lights at Bear Creek Winery. Stroll among the brightly lighted displays and finish up with a hot cup of cocoa around a fire. TRAILS will shuttle a couple of car fulls to Bear Creek Winery next Friday—December 21. Call or text Devony at 299-3244 to sign up, and then meet at ILC. Or you guys might want to share a cab ride over using one of your vouchers.
Check out the calendar right here: weekly events December 15-22.pdf. Other highlights include tomorrow’s outdoor scavenger hunt at I&O and Monday’s concert by Homer High students. There are also book signings and sewing bees and author readings and more. And notice that SVT’s Thriving Thursday is an hour earlier this week to accommodate the busy schedule of Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus.
Check out ALL the other stuff to do this week too!
(And the beautiful Garden of Lights begins Friday at Bear Creek Winery. Hopefully it will fit on NEXT week’s calendar!)
Maybe a little outing will help to settle your nerves--you’ll find lots of things in this week’s calendar to help you feel holiday happy—like how about decorating a tree for wildlife or using bees wax to wrap gifts! Check out ALL the activities on this week's calendar right here: weekly events December 1-8.pdf
And, of course, the Nutcracker Faire and Ballet is a BIG highlight December 1-2.
The calendar is a bit late this week because of the holidays. The Nutcracker Faire is a BIG highlight this week, December 1-2.
But there’s LOTS more to do this week—performances, geocaching, a mini marine symposium, and more! Check out what’s happening in the calendar right here: weekly events November 24-Dec 1.pdf
Happy Thanksgiving, EveryBODY! There are lots of fun things going on this week, and two places serving free Thanksgiving dinner.
And to start the week, have a wonderful Saturday watching a free film at Islands and Ocean and then strolling to the library for a storytelling Tellabration. Or if you’re a Veteran, start the day at the Veterans Fair at SVT. On Friday, dance off the pounds at a Square and Contra dance at West Homer Elementary. For more fun activities, just check the calendar right here: weekly events November 17-24.pdf
Here are just a few highlights to get you thinking about this weekend and next week:
There's plenty of fun and interesting stuff happening this week--not surprisingly as we close in on the holidays. Tomorrow, of course, is the annual Rotary Health Fair at Homer High. Other special highlights this week are the wonderful annual Empty Bowls fundraising lunch on Friday (November 9) at Homer United Methodist Church, and then the season's first Christmas Bazaar takes place the following Saturday at Faith Lutheran Church. Find out what else is going on this week in the calendar right here: weekly events November 3-10.pdf.
Also, TRAILS has arranged for discounted tickets for our consumers for tomorrow night’s dance performance at the Mariner—which looks like it’s gonna be amazing. Just call Homer Council on the Arts at 235-4288, and tell them you’re a participant in the TRAILS program at ILC and you’d like to purchase a discounted ticket. You’ll be able to buy a ticket for the kids’ price of $11. (And be sure to tell HCOA thank you!).
