Please join us Friday night, September 25th for the first Families Together of the school year. We will be featuring “How Do You Hug A Porcupine?” by Laurie Isop. We start with story time and every child gets to take home their very own copy of the featured book.* (Age appropriate books for older children are also available.) After story time their will be free dinner thanks to The Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and our hardworking friends from the Yachats Community Presbyterian Church. After dinner, there will be a story related craft for the kids to do. You really don’t want to miss it! We hope to see you there!

Yes it’s true, the Banana Slugs are returning to Yachats for a free concert at the Yachats Commons. Our own local Bluegrass Band The Bad Weeds is playing too. This is an event you don’t want to miss! Thanks to the generosity of local donors who care about children’s exposure to quality music and environmental issues, this concert is entirely free. The fun starts at 5 pm. Come join us for a really fun, all-ages, end of summer event for our community; especially the youth. Learn more about The Banana Slug String Band at www.bananaslugstringband.com
