Playground taking shape

The Homer Playground Project is making great progress, thanks in large part to support from the Homer community. The following businesses have sponsored playground components and will be permanently recognized with metal plaques affixed to the components at Karen Hornaday Park: American Legion Post 16 — low ladder; Angie Newby/Homer Real Estate — climbing boulder; K-Bay Marine Corps League Detachment 838 — swing set; Bear Creek Winery and Lodging — swing set; Homer Medical Clinic — swing set; and Petro Marine Services — wiggle bridge.

A huge thanks to these Play Sponsors and to the many individuals who have made donations, "purchased" fence pickets, bought HoPP T-shirts, and are helping out in other ways. Thank you also to BP Alaska for a very generous $10,000 equipment sponsorship.

There still are many playground components in need of sponsors and many fence pickets yet to be engraved and sold. Please visit HoPP's website (www.HomerPlaygroundProject.org) for more information. With continued support from generous donors and volunteers, we will be building the new playground in only four months.
