On Saturday, September 17th, all Lincoln County residents are invited to participate in Lincoln County’s third annual Recovery/Wellbriety month celebration. At 9:30 AM community members will gather at the Fishermen’s Memorial in Yaquina Bay State Park, just off the north end of the bridge to participate in the “Hands Across the Bridge” event. Led by County Commissioner Bill Hall and District Attorney Rob Bovett, this event stretched halfway across the span of the bridge last year in the rain; we’re hoping for an even bigger crowd this year. Get there early for a free event t-shirt!
It is a visual reminder honoring and encouraging those who are recovering from drug and alcohol addiction and for the thousands, besides themselves, who are affected by it.
The bridge event will be followed immediately by the Recovery/Wellbriety Celebration at Yaquina View School, 351 SE Harney Street in Newport. The celebration runs from 11:00-2:00PM; featuring free hot dogs and hamburgers, potluck desserts, live music, Native American drummers plus an array of children’s activities & door prizes.
