PFLAG Oregon Central Coast has received a grant from Levi Strauss to promote HIV/AIDS prevention, especially among young people in Lincoln County. The initial activity of this Levi Grant will be held Saturday, Sept. 6 at 3 pm at Liberty Inn, 4990 NE Logan Rd, in Lincoln City, in conjunction with the display of this small part of the AIDS Quilt. Area government, education, and health officials as well as Levi staff members have been invited to attend a short ceremony commemorating those honored by the Quilt. All are invited to attend this brief, but important, ceremony to honor those who lost their lives to HIV/AIDS and to pledge our communities to the hard work of education and prevention.
Most of the Oregon Coast Pride Festival, including many activities and vendors, is scheduled for the Lincoln City Cultural Center at 540 NE Hwy 101.
