CARE Connections, Pathways to Positive Parenting, and Healthy Families Oregon will be in Gold Beach to hear your thoughts on: current services and activities for young children in Curry County; and how to improve services for families.
Helen Picca is a former marketing executive from NYC living in Port Orford. She was inspired by the town’s people and rich history to write a work of historical fiction titled The Last Frontier of the Fading West. A story of love and redemption that begins in 1942 and spans 50 years in the life of the heroine, the book covers the attacks on the coast during WWII and specifically the sinking of the Larry Doheny and the bombing east of Brookings. Legendary Governor Tom McCall, the Beach Bill, Battle Rock, Cape Blanco, the Port Orford Heads, and the Port Orford Meteorite are all skillfully woven into the narrative. Helen's reading will begin at 5:30 pm on Thursday, November 9.
