CACS looks forward to next 30 years

The Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies would like to thank the community of Homer for all of its awesome support, especially over this past week. We celebrated our 30th anniversary in style last Saturday at our block party at our headquarters building in town. We had close to 150 people stop by to eat great food prepared by Two Sisters Bakery, listen to the energizing tunes of Burnt Down House, and taste delicious wine donated by Bear Creek Winery complete with a special 30th anniversary custom label.

Funds for the food were provided by generous donations from Wells Fargo and an anonymous donor. We cant thank super volunteer Cathy Wilmeth enough for her excellent planning skills and commitment to helping us pull off a grand event plus she won the pie/cobbler contest.

To top it all off, we had a full house at Alices Champagne Palace on Thursday night for A Comedy Cocktail Party the live Homer version of your favorite TV reruns, performed by Old Songs Productions, the profits of which benefited CACS that night. We greatly appreciate Alices and the cast of Old Songs Productions supporting the nonprofits of Homer in such a fun and entertaining way.

Summer is only half over and there is still time to participate in programs, tours and activities. Thanks to all for being a part of the CACS experience heres to 30 more great years of connecting people to the nature of Kachemak Bay.
