MUSIC DUO TO PLAY AT OCEAN CREEK B&B OPEN HOUSE
TO COLLECT FOOD AND TOYS FOR YYFAP AND FOOD PANTRY
In the spirit of the season and to give back to their new community, the innkeepers of Ocean Creek Bed and Breakfast will hold an open house to collect non-perishable food and toys for the Yachats Youth and Family Activities Program and Yachats Food Share. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1010 Hwy. 101 S., just south of Yachats. Beverages and holiday treats will be served.
Lost in Time, a duo drawn from the Oregon Coast Recorder Society, will play dance music and songs from medieval times to the 21st Century on the recorder, viola da gamba, and gemshorn.
Yachats Youth & Family Activities Program serves South Lincoln County youth and families with high quality preschool, early literacy activities, afterschool, summer camps and family programs. “If folks want to donate toys, we can take any kind for various purposes, just not play weapons of any kind. We would use them in our two main programs: preschool age (3-5) and school age (5-12). Puzzles, art supplies, and similar toys are always welcome,” Alice Beck, executive director of YYFAP, said.
Ocean Creek Bed and Breakfast opened recently in a landmark house, which innkeepers Jim Murphy and Diane Disse have spent five months remodeling. Murphy has a background in the hospitality business including 15 years with Salishan Spa and Golf Resort and positions with Hilton and Holiday Inns in Minneapolis-St. Paul. Disse’s background is in marketing, editing, and writing with the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota Historical Society, and Science Museum of Minnesota. When they arrived in Oregon, Murphy ran the Spyglass Inn Bed and Breakfast in Lincoln City, and Disse taught writing and journalism at Western Oregon University. She left the Lincoln County Historical Society in 2013 after 13 years as museum educator.
Guests are asked to bring two non-perishable food items or an unwrapped toy. For more information, call 541-547-4113.
