The March PFLAG meeting will be on Wednesday, March 13, at 7:00 pm at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, located at the corner of SW 9th St. & Hurbert St. in Newport.  The presentation for the March PFLAG Meeting is —

On Friday, March 8th at 12:00 noon, the International Women’s Day Bridge Walk for Peace  will meet at the north end of the Yaquina Bay Bridge.   Women and the men who love them will bring signs & banners celebrating women and their struggle for justice and peace.  This is co-sponsored with Interfaith Community for Peace & Justice and National Organization for Women.
