Kudos to arts community
In June, the Homer Council on the Arts presented the Oscar nominated live-action and animated short films. These are the films we always hear about at the Academy Awards but never get to see. We could not have done this alone. Our sincere thanks goes out to Diane Sadler and her crew at the Homer Family Theater for their donation of space and technical assistance. The Homer Family Theater and HCOA hope to make this a collaborative annual event.

July 20 brought fabulous weather to Homer in honor of HCOA's 12th annual Street Fair. We would like to thank all the vendors, dancers and musicians who participated. Also thanks to Jody Rose, Peninsula Sanitation, Don Jose's restaurant, Bob (Mr. Music) Perry, The Kenai Peninsula Orchestra, Tamara Hagerty from Public Works, Homer High School and all the other volunteers who helped make this fair so successful. And three cheers to the Homer Public Library folks who kicked off their capital campaign with a salmon bake at the street fair to help bring a bigger and better library to Homer.
