Homer TRAILS August 2023Calendar & Newsletter

August header with yellow and green background and blueberries.

July was Disability Pride Month and we ended the month with our first American with Disabilities Act Celebration to commemorate the 33rd anniversary of the passage of a very important social justice law that community members experiencing disability still advocate for today. The celebration was a huge hit. Thanks to everyone who stopped by for food, games and to chat and enjoy the sun. Huge shout out to Joseph Freeman for feeding the people, RJ Nelson for leading the beautification of our ramp and to Pat Case for advocating for greater accessibility in our community. We celebrate Pat, as a result of his call to action, Homer will see real immediate change to promote greater pedestrian safety.
