Upwards of 150 people joined hands, spanning about 1/3 of the Yaquina Bay Bridge stood in a light rain Saturday morning to celebrate those who have kicked alcohol and drug addiction, and who have found that life is best lived sober. They call it “Wellbriety.”
It was the second year in a row that a group of Wellbriety celebrants gathered on the bridge, hand in hand, looking forward to the day that their participants will be enough to span the entire bridge from Government Park to South Beach.
After the demonstration on the bridge, they walked back to the bridge’s north end, got into their cars and headed for Yaquina View School where their celebration of Wellbriety continues with live music, free hamburgers and hotdogs and a variety of homemade desserts. All are welcome to attend.
Those who have and alcohol or drug addiction problem can begin their own personal journey to Wellbriety by calling 541-265-4179.
