Marimba madness: a great success

What a fun, rhythm driven, wonderful evening of Marimba Madness at Alice's on Saturday night. The event was a fundraiser for Homer Council on the Arts and it was a great success. Thank you to the Homer Community for coming out and supporting HCOA and the marimba community. Thank you to all the individuals and businesses that donated to the silent auction. Thank you Alice's for your support and great service, the Homer Bookstore for selling tickets, Dave Aplin as MC and the HCOA board for all their time and energy behind the scenes.

And thank you to all the marimba players for your hours and hours of practice and final performance for all of us. Let's do it again next year.
