There was a spiraling line of 200 plus people last Friday night for the St. Timothy’s Outreach Clinic’s Tuna Dinner Fundraiser at the Brookings  Presbyterian Church. 

“It exceeded our expectations,” organizer Father Bernie Lindley said. “We expected 150 (people) and we ended up with well over 200.”



Breakfast honors new school employees


 Preparations are under way for the Community Back to School Breakfast for new employees of Brookings-Harbor School District and the South Coast Education Service District.

The 27th annual event will be at 7 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, at the Brookings-Harbor High School cafeteria. It is sponsored by the Brookings-Harbor Chamber of Commerce.

 Community members are invited to attend and the breakfast is free because area businesses help underwrite the cost.

Thousands of people found a relaxing place to look at art, watch presentations, listen to music and enjoy culinary delights at the Boardwalk Arts Fest at the Port of Brookings Harbor over the weekend.

“We tried to make it as stress free as possible,” said Dori Blodgett, chair of the organization committee.

Blodgett and a team of volunteers sprang into action after it was announced that the Festival of the Arts, which was scheduled during the same weekend, had been canceled. She and several others didn’t want to be without a summer arts event. They contact artists, vendors and businesses offering services. As a result, total of 70 artisans came together to set up booths and sell their crafts and services. A few gave demonstrations.
