Cheers to Mariner basketball fans

I would like to thank all of the people that came out to the Homer High School gym the weekend of the Wasilla/Homer game and the ones that came back since then.I saw many familiar faces that I havent seen for a while. It was appreciated that we had many more fans in the gym than our opponents.

Also a heartfelt thank you to all of you, from all of us, who bought a ticket or an entire book of cash raffle tickets in support of the Mariner Boys Basketball program. Every year we have to fundraise, fundraise, and fundraise some more, in order to travel around the state to get to games. Without these funds our program would not survive. So, thanks a million.

Sometimes the best place for these athletes is on a rickety old bus with no seatbelts, heading to their next sports event. They love it. And with all of the many threats of cutting funds and the reality of cutting funds, these dollars go a long way for our programs.

See you next year.

Kim Greer, parent and fan
