    OK, as you can see in this week's calendar right here: weekly events December 8-15.pdf, you could do all this TOMORROW (Saturday) in ONE day—
    • learn to fall and get up in ways that are good for your body, 
    • trim a tree in ways that are fun and good for wildlife, 
    • make DIY holiday crafts in ways that are good for your wallet, and 
    • go see the Nutcracker ballet--which will be good for your heart.  
    Only in Homer could you have that much fun despite this much rain!!  

    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!)

    Happy Thanksgiving, EveryBODY!  There are lots of fun things going on this week, and two places serving free Thanksgiving dinner.

    Wednesday noon, TRAILS will say Thanks with a warm fire, pies, and hot drinks at Bishop’s Beach.  On Thursday, enjoy a Thanksgiving feast compliments of the good folks at Refuge Chapel (they start serving at 2 pm) or Homer United Methodist Church (they start serving at 3 pm).  You can find addresses in the calendar.  

    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

    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!).

    Howdy TRAILS pony lovers,

    I had sure hoped it would stop raining enough for the driveway to dry out a bit, but no such luck.  There's standing water in much of the area I'd hoped to be able to use--and the footing is turning into pudding.

    So I'm gonna try again NEXT week to have the TRAILS end-of-season pony time--hoping to find a window of decent weather.

    My apologies for those who were hoping pony time would come together this week.  We'll try again next week.

    Hi EveryBODY,

    I'm rolling the dice that Wednesday weather won't be TOO bad for an end-of-season visit to the ponies at Bay Ridge Ranch.  Unless you hear otherwise, we'll gather at ILC at 4 pm and carpool up to the ranch for an hour or so of enjoying the big, beautiful, friendly calmness, and warmth of a happy herd of horses. 

    I'll keep you posted, so check here if you want last-minute details. 

    Devony, Sweetheart, Ceilidh, Sophi, and Micki :-)
