A community of generosity


Brookings-Harbor may be a small community, but the hearts of its residents are gigantic, especially when it comes to celebrating the holidays and thinking of others.

To name a few:

Volunteers again have transformed Azalea Park into a holiday wonderland featuring thousands of colored lights and decorated sculptures. The show closes Dec. 25. Don’t miss it!

Legions of residents are donating canned goods to Brookings-Harbor Community Helpers food bank to help feed the needy.

 The Brookings-Harbor Redshirts have been busy sending care packages overseas to men and women in the U.S. military.

The Oregon Coast Community Action is teaming up with local businesses to display Giving Trees – Christmas trees decorated with tags containing childrens’ holiday wishes.

Members of the Brookings Elks Club are still collecting toys for needy families – drop unopened, unwrapped toys at various locations including Fred Meyer or the Brookings Elk Club, 800 Elk Drive, next to City Hall.

Salvation Army bellringers are weathering the cold and rain outside of Fred Meyer to collect money for those less fortunate.

Local organizations, schools and individuals are offering wonderful music concerts. 

Brookings’ downtown merchants have decorated street poles with festive garlands and someone even decorated the railings of the Chetco River bridge! 

The volunteers with the Stout Mountain Railway have created a “Trains in Toyland” display at the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center through Dec. 24.

The Elks Christmas Basket Program will deliver food to needy families in the area.

And .... the list goes on an on. Check the Art Scene’s “What’s happening this weekend” list on Page 3B.

Yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and we applaud all of the people who are helping to make the holidays brighter – especially for those less fortunate. The outpouring of holiday spirit is impressive – and something of which the entire community should be proud.
