Cloudy conditions on the coast last Saturday didn’t dampen plant enthusiasts who partook in the 2014 annual Garden Tour hosted by the Gold Beach Innominata Garden Club.
According to Garden Club spokesperson Barb Raynes, approximately 70 people made the rounds to six locations that encompassed an area from 2 1/2 miles south of Gold Beach, in town and 7 miles up Jerry’s Flat Road.

GOLD BEACH — The Curry County Fair is quickly approaching and the time to bring exhibits to the Event Center on the Beach is from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 22.
This gives organizers a day to set up and judge the exhibits for opening day, Thursday, July 24. The fair will continue through Sunday, July 27, at the fairgrounds on Highway 101 in Gold Beach.

It’s time to fly at the 22nd annual Southern Oregon Kite Festival, which kicks off Friday with an indoor kite flying demonstration.
The free exhibition will be from 7 to 9 p.m. July 18 in the Brookings-High School gymnasium, 625 Pioneer Road, Brookings.
Kite pilots will demonstrate movements with kites of varying sizes that are designed to fly in a windless environment. The motion generated by the kite flier moving backward and in circles while pulling and jerking on the kite lines provides the “wind” for the kites to move, event organizers said.
