Oregon Coast Pride and national AIDS quilt.

Sept. 5-7, is the annual Oregon Coast Pride Celebration.  This year there will be a display of panels from the national AIDS Quilt on Friday night from 6-9 and Saturday from 11 AM to 6 PM. One of the panels will honor Lincoln County residents and will have special meaning for many in our community.

PFLAG Oregon Central Coast recently received a grant from Levi Strauss to promote HIV/AIDS prevention, especially among young people in Lincoln County.  The initial activity of our LEVI Grant will be held next Saturday, Sept. 6 at 3 pm at Liberty Inn at 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.

We hope you will be able 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.  If you are able to attend, please respond to this invitation so we can better plan for this brief program.
