Welcome to the web site that may change your life!
We are a group of retired men in Southern New Jersey who have joined together
to bring more meaning to our retirement years. Our efforts have been successful!
We have three goals:
1) Volunteer our services to the community.'
2) Help each other.
3) Have some "FUN."

Highlights in 2017
Since March (the HNO that never happened), the HOMERs have meet regularly each month at a member's home:
in April at Bob H's
in May at Fred's
in June at Bain's
in July at Rich's
in August at Dave's
in September at Gene's
in October at George G's

Since October, some members led by Walt R., have had breakfast together at the Patty Wagon Cafe near the runway at the Flying W Airport in Medford.
We are pleased to announce the creation of the
Robert Rodney Rhoad, Jr. Fund for the Preservation and Restoration of Historic Art
at the Jamestown, Rhode Island, Historical Society.
A HOMER's memorial donation to this fund helped make it possible and we have received
a thank you letter outlining the process the Historical Society will follow
to restore a wonderful old watercolor of a stone wall in East Ferry, Rhode Island.
It may be that Bob's father and also he, as a young boy, may have
stopped at a well nearby for water on a hot summer day.
All HOMERs are invited to visit the Jamestown, Rhode Island Historical Society at 92 Narragansett Avenue.
If individual members care to make additional donations, mail it to P.O.Box 156, Jamestown, RI 02835
Peter is the newest HOMER, he lives in Medford and recently retired.

|Just a Reminder
the HOMER's November Meeting will be November 29th at Bobby D's.
But that doesn't mean the Homers have been home alone and sitting still; they've been working!
On a recent cool and crisp November morning Gene, Jerry, Bob D., Larry, Ron, Bobby D.,
and George G., AKA "The Router" were working at assembling mini-picnic benches for the children at a local camp.
