Each year, throngs of visitors and locals visit the Azalea Park – for very good reason: It is truly the “jewel” of Brookings.

But, what if, nearly 20 years ago, some people hadn’t walked the area – then littered with old tires, batteries tangled in a mass of brambles – and asked, “What if we cleaned this up, rescued the native Azaleas and planted a series of gardens? And what if we did it all without charging the city of Brookings a single penny?”

Snip, hiss, hum went the scissors, irons and sewing machines last Saturday afternoon at Living Waters Foursquare Church as women cut fabric, ironed it, and sewed it into dresses, skirt sets and pants.

These particular clothes are for children in Appalachia, Ghana, Nicaragua and Uganda. 

The clothes are being made as part of Dress a Girl Around the World, a ministry sponsored by the nonprofit Hope 4 Women International. Dress a Girl works to clothe women and children.

More than two decades ago, the Chetco Pelican Players was established and soon afterward, began presenting awards known as the PACKY – Performing Arts Center Krazy Year.

Although the Players now have its shows at the Chetco Playhouse, the words in the award title, Krazy Year, still apply.

The 2011 season was plagued with schedule changes, faced with show cancellations and had more thespians die than any previous season, yet the theater group managed to pull it off, with most of the shows receiving several awards.
