What are this West Homewood Facebook Page mastermind and Homewood City Council member’s favorite things in Homewood? Read on.
Great Books Cheap
Homewood Public Library (HPL) rocks. Amazing programs and an impressive array of circulating materials—even telescopes. But if you haven’t ventured downstairs to the Friends of the HPL Bookstore, you’re really missing out. Library discards and donated items line the shelves with books, magazines, DVDs and more, and all of them are offered at dirt-cheap prices.
South of the Border
Sabor Latino is a regular haunt for my family. Delicious food—and lots of it—at reasonable prices. Owner Manuel Barco and his staff dish up a wide variety of cuisine that suits both my vegetarian wife and her decidedly carnivorous husband. It’s especially fun in July when the restaurant anniversary and Peruvian Independence Day are jointly celebrated.
To Market, To Market
West Homewood Farmer’s Market
The West Homewood Farmer’s Market is my favorite thing about summer nights in Homewood. Offering a wide variety of vegetables, crafts, sweets and food trucks, Tuesday evenings draw neighbors from across our city and beyond. Lots of people talk about building community—these men and women are doing it.
HCS Educational Advisory Committee
Everyone loves Homewood City Schools, and why wouldn’t they? Great administrators, staff, faculty and PTOs at each school are a big part of that. Still, I’m not sure as many folks know about the Educational Advisory Committee (EAC). The EAC brings together representatives from ALL these groups and ALL five schools to talk TOGETHER. I appreciate their unique contributions to helping keep us at our best.
Walk the Line
Shades Creek Greenway
Shades Creek Greenway is an amenity that touches so many. Whether you are a serious runner or just a couple out for a lazy stroll, it draws us all to the winding boulevard of water that blesses our community. And I’m genuinely excited as we close in making it even better as the city council takes steps toward starting construction on the Phase II extension into West Homewood!
