The seniors of Brookings-Harbor High School baked in the sun Saturday afternoon as they waited eagerly to receive their diplomas — but they had to listen to some final words of advice first. 

The 106 graduating students heard from Principal Lisa Dion, Teacher of the Year Ted Burdett, counselor Kristi Fulton and some of their fellow students, who sent them out into the world with words of wisdom and fond memories.

The free “Summer Concerts in the Park” series at Brookings’ Azalea Park kicks off at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 12, with the 1950s-60s rock and roll music of the Hot Rods Band.

The band will be joined by the Curry County Cruisers, a Brookings car club that will have up to 15 classic cars on display.

The concerts, presented by sponsor Rogue Credit Union, typically draw crowds of 300 to 500 people who bring blankets and lawn chairs to the park’s natural amphitheater. 



Wearing costumes designed by Sky-Marie McDonald, students dance to “Here Comes the Sun.”

The Brookings Church of the Nazarene teamed with dancers during the Beatlemania! concert Thursday and Friday night.

The concert was presented by Wild Rivers Conservatory of Dance, led by instructor Sky-Marie McDonald, who also choreographed and costumed the show that featured all Beatles songs.

A large-group dance to “Twist and Shout” opened the show, followed by solo performances to “All My Loving” by Ash-Lee Guido and “Eleanor Rigby” by Cheyenne Camarillo.


It’s time for summer activities at the library

The Azalea Festival weekend is now history and there was lovely warm weather for the many visitors who came to enjoy all the events that took place all around our area. 

The Friends of the Library book sale was a big draw as usual and we wish to thank all the people who worked to make it the success it was.

All volunteers who sorted, selected, and worked selling books over the five days of the event are most appreciated, and we send a big thank you to everyone. We also send a hearty thank you to the many people who donated books for the sale and the many purchasers who bought them.
