An official partnership was announced on Friday (December 7) between the Homer Village, Center for the Arts and Landmark Society in order to restore and re-purpose that old white church on the Homer Village Green.
The former historic Cavalry Episcopal Church will now be available for weddings and private events, as well as lectures, concerts, meetings and more with three distinct spaces available inside, according to Center for the Arts Executive Director Ty Marshall.
The proposal was initially made by Homer Mayor Hal McCabe several months ago, following bounds of discussion about what was to done with the vacant church.
The Center for the Arts will now celebrate the new restoration effort with a grand-opening performance by The Center Wassailers this Sunday (December 16) night at 7:00.
The Wassailers are a spirited group of community members who have prepared a holiday concert program that they’ve been rehearsing the past four months.
The event is free to attend, although there will be donations accepted at the door to be split between the Center for the Arts and the restoration fund for the former church.
All ages are welcome and light refreshments will be available.
