Thanks to community for support

A mere thank you cannot begin to express my gratitude to all who helped with and attended my medical fundraiser, but its where Ill start.

To my family and friends who planned and attended the event, thank you. To Alices and their staff for hosting and making such a yummy spaghetti dinner, thank you. To all the individuals and businesses who donated such wonderful items, thank you. To Chris Story, auctioneer extraordinaire, thank you. And how did you learn to talk so fast?

The band, 907 was awesome. So much so, that some of my friends traveled out of town to see them play again. Pat McBride also entertained the crowd with his Alaska stories and had the kids sitting rapt with attention, which is no small feat.

It was very humbling to have people come together to help me with my medical expenses. Its also a testament to the people of Homer how we can all support each other in a time of need even when others are dealing with so much.

I am forever grateful to the people of this town for their caring and generous spirit. This is one of the many reasons Im glad to call Homer my home.
