    FOR THE HOMERNEWS

    Finding a stable home for Homer recreation programs is the goal of ReCreate Rec, a grassroots group whose vision includes a community center. 

    Still in the research and development phase of its plan, the group has divided itself into smaller working groups to determine a course of action, how to make its goals a reality, what the center will look like and how to maintain the project once it is built.
