Local Service Clubs & Groups
Homer offers many service clubs and groups who perform many vital services for the community and other worthy causes. These clubs are a type of voluntary organization where members meet regularly for social outings and to perform charitable works either by direct hands-on efforts or by raising money for other organizations. From our local Boys and Girls Club, which offers elementary and middle schools children a safe educational place to go and study after school, to our Elks Club and American Legion. These organizations, as well as a plethora of other clubs are helping to make this cosmic hamlet by the sea shine. Please see the links below for more information.
