Sweet Adeline choruses from Lincoln and Coos counties are going head-to-head to benefit Relay For Life.
The Oregon Coast Chorus of Newport, along with the Sea Breeze Harmony Chorus of Coos Bay, will be hosting a song-filled afternoon of “All-American Summertime Fun” on Saturday July 14th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm at the American Legion Hall, located at 424 W Olive Street in Newport.
The choruses will pitch their songs in a baseball game format; complete with uniforms, innings and concessions. Songs will include baseball standards , “The Star Spangled Banner,” and “Take Me Out To The Ball Game,” in addition to summer favorites, “Summertime, Summertime,” “Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer,” and others.
Admission is free with a suggested donation to Relay For Life of $5. Concessions will be available for purchase from the American Legion. A 50/50 raffle will take place during the ‘game’ and a traditional after-glow will follow.

This is the house on Eads Street in Newport, between 8th and 9th, where there will be one heck of a garage sale Saturday, from 8 to 3. It’s a big garage sale featuring donations and gifts from throughout Lincoln County and are being sold by the Relay for Life, fight cancer team. All proceeds go to the American Cancer Society so they can keep pushing ahead to find cures for all the varieties of cancer that all too early end the lives of untolled numbers of our friends and members of our families – every one a son, daughter, father, mother, grandparent or foster parent that made so much of a difference in some young person’s life.
Teams already involved in this year’s Relay for Life event include Oregon Coast Bank, Fred Meyer, Friends & Family of Lincoln County and Veterans.
So stop by and peruse the many items available for sale, obviously at a small fraction of the price they originally sold for. It’s at 826 Eads Street. As you can see it doesn’t have a house number on it, but it on east side of Eads, just north of 8th Street. It’s got a low cinder block fence in front of it.
