News and Upcoming Events

 
News and Event Notices from the October 6 meeting:
 
 1.  Capitol Dental Care, Gentle Dental is pleased to announce the arrival of the Tiny House Dental Clinic to rural Lane County sites. Please join us for an Open House, October 18th,  11:30am-1:30pm to meet our dental team and tour the tiny mobile clinic. See attached flyer for details.  Thank you again to our site Host, Presbyterian Church of the Siuslaw. (Note: This is part of the Rural Oregon Outreach Program, providing oral health services to members of the Oregon Health Plan working with the State of Oregon and Oregon's Coordinated Care Organizations.)
 
2.  PFLAG Florence will show the newly released documentary, “Pray Away” on Tuesday, October 12, at 6:30 p.m. at Florence United Methodist Church. Masks will be required (supplied, if needed). The film will be projected on the large screen in the church sanctuary, which is served by a high-efficiency air filtration system. 

The film, which runs one hour and 41 minutes, deals with so-called “conversion therapy,” a practice now rejected by the American Psychiatric Association and the American Psychological Association and banned in many states (including Oregon). LGBTQ+ individuals who have undergone this form of “therapy” were found to be twice as likely to report a suicide attempt and two and a half times more likely to have reported multiple attempts. 

The public is invited. Refreshments will not be served. Reference materials will be made available. The church is located at the corner of Second and Kingwood Streets one block west of Hwy 101.

PFLAG-Florence is an affiliate of a national organization with more than 350 chapters and 200,000 members and supporters across the United States. PFLAG is the country’s largest organization for parents, families, friends, and straight allies united with people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT).
