    OCHS Christmas Store Now Open!

    11/10/2022

    Read More
    Santa Paws and his helpers have dusted off their elf slippers and are hard at work preparing for Oregon Coast Humane Society's Christmas Store. The annual event is a Florence favorite and runs from Tues., Nov. 1, through Nov. 30, or until the elves run out of merchandise. This year's Christmas Store is located at 1179 Bay Street, next to the OCHS Thrift Shop, and open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    Our community supporters are incredibly generous, and the quality of Christmas donations is exceptional. We've been saving them all year to prepare for this special event and can't wait for the shoppers to see what the elves have in store for them," said OCHS Executive Director Elizabeth Thompson.
    There is certainly no shortage of Christmas merchandise this year, according to Christmas Store Chair Shauna Robbers. "We have enough merchandise to fill the store four times over. Expect new products to be added daily," she said.
    Holiday shoppers will be greeted on opening day by one of Santa's furry helpers to thank them for their purchases that help wagging tails. Photos with Santa are also planned at locations throughout Florence, including the OCHS shelter at 2840 Rhododendron Drive.
    A schedule of events will be posted on the website and Facebook pages for the thrift shop and the shelter, and Thompson encourages local businesses or organizations that can host an event to contact her directly.
    The Christmas Store is run entirely on volunteer power, so all proceeds go directly to the care of the animals at the shelter. A giving tree will also be available for community members who wish to buy gifts for shelter residents. There are still volunteer opportunities available at the Christmas Store, and donations of holiday items and general merchandise are accepted year-round during regular thrift shop hours. Call 541-997-5705 for more information.
    Oregon Coast Humane Society is a nonprofit, limited-intake shelter that promotes a lifetime commitment to pets. Visit us online at oregoncoasthumanesociety.org or call 541-997-4277.

    The Perfect Gift: The 2022 Holly Jolly Follies

    11/24/2022

    Read More
    A happy tradition in Flo-town is to gather your friends and family, and head over to the Florence Events Center for The Holly Jolly Follies. This year's Follies will be presented by C.R.O.W. at the Florence Events Center on December 2-4, and is sure to kick off your holiday season right.
    "It has been three whole years since the Follies graced the stage at the Florence Events Center. Our production in 2019 happened just before the Pandemic arrived as an unwelcome cast member. So many people have commented how much they have missed it and are so excited that we are back this year," said Melanie Heard. "We are SO happy to be back!!"
    Local playwright Rose Ellen Jacobson, with the help of her daughter, and show director, Heard, have created a sentimental and sweet series of vignettes, involving several of the Follies' most beloved characters plus some new additions. The show will feature assistant direction by Genevieve Shahan, musical direction by Maree Beers, and live musical accompaniment by Rhianna Haines and Marty Adams, plus many other musicians, volunteers, and performers.
    The short synopsis is that Santa's gift of a magical stocking comes as a BIG surprise to the elves this year. Each unexpected item that is revealed represents one of life's perfectly intangible gifts, such as Laughter, Love, Friendship, Creativity, Time, and much more. The story centers on the concept that the "perfect gift" doesn't need ribbons or bows, because it is not something that can be bought in a store.
    As always, there will be delightful variety-style performances, intermixed throughout. This year's offerings include the incredible Flight Dance Team – back with an original piece entitled "The Gift of Nature," several beautiful vocalists, teen and adult tappers, C.R.O.W.'s dance class performances, comedy skits, live music, and of course….the World Famous Tutu Dads who will pounce into your heart!
    Putting the Follies together is no easy feat, since it involves such a diverse crowd of talents – not to mention a huge cast of volunteers. But C.R.O.W. is no stranger to the task, having taken the reins for this community event back in 2016. "The entire C.R.O.W. team is really looking forward to bringing our community a heartwarming show this year," said Heard.
    Ticket sales from the Follies support C.R.O.W.'s free and low-cost arts programming, including scholarships for youth, educational materials, and production costs for the non-profit's Spring mainstage production (The SpongeBob Musical), which will hold open auditions in January and be performed live on stage in April, 2023.
    For tickets to The Perfect Gift: The 2022 Holly Jolly Follies, visit the Florence Events Center website at www.eventcenter.org, or call 541-997-1994. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for kids 12 and younger. Showtimes are Friday at 7 pm, Saturday at 7 pm, and Sunday at 2 pm. For additional details including a Ticket Discount Promo Code which expires Nov. 5th, visit www.crowkids.com.

    Popovich Comedy Pet Theater Supports OCHS Animals

    Internationally acclaimed performer and animal trainer Gregory Popovich is bringing his Comedy Pet Tour to Florence Events Center on Wed., Dec. 7, at 6:30 p.m., for a one-time show.
    Get ready for a fun-filled, fast-paced extravaganza known as "the most beloved family show in the world." The Comedy Pet Show features animals Popovich has rescued from shelters across the country who now join him on stage in the limelight. He and his four-legged co-stars have appeared as TV guests with Jay Leno and David Letterman and were finalists in "America's Got Talent."
    Popovich has spent years advocating for homeless pets and focuses on improving the life of every animal he personally rescues. He shares his expertise for raising, training and living harmoniously with pets in two books – "You CAN Train Your Cat" and "Doggy Gone Good."
    Popovich teams up with local animal shelters in every city he performs in, so his pets won't be the only stars that evening. The Oregon Coast Humane Society (OCHS) will bring some of their furry friends to welcome guests to the show at the FEC.
    The Popovich Comedy Pet Tour is presented by Florence Arts, Culture & Entertainment (FACE), a nonprofit organization that supports cultural, educational and civic activities at the FEC. A portion of ticket sales will be donated by FACE to benefit OCHS shelter and community animals.
    "We are so grateful to FACE for including us in this event. Any opportunity to share the value of positive training, humane treatment, and the reward of adopting a shelter pet builds a better community," said OCHS Executive Director Elizabeth Thompson.
    Tickets are $10 for ages 3-18 and $20 for ages 19 and over. To purchase, call 541-997-1994, visit eventcenter.org or stop by the FEC Box Office at 715 Quince St. from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.

    Open Your Heart & Home To Foster Children

    09/12/2019

    Read More
    Last year, nearly 400 children spent time in foster care in Coos County. 66% spent time in more than one foster home. Many were split from their siblings.
    If a natural disaster hit our state and children were wandering the street without someone to care for them, each of us would open our homes to help in the crisis. With more than 350 children currently in foster care and more entering the system every day, we're in the midst of a disaster in our county.
    Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) works hard to care for children and families in crisis, but is often left with few resources for volunteer and foster parent recruitment efforts.
    If we don't step in, many children will be left without the care, comfort, and safety of a loving home during times of trauma, transition, and uncertainty. We can do better for Coos County's children. We know that our community want to take action, but they just don't know where to begin. Many of us feel helpless, doing nothing or never considering foster parenting.
    Every Child gathers community members in partnership with Oregon's Department of Human Services (DHS) to aide vulnerable children and families. And by doing so, we're able to bring love, care, and support to vulnerable children and families who previously had nowhere to turn.
    Everyone has something to bring to foster care — be it donating, volunteering or fostering. Go to Everychildcoos.org to learn more

Abbreviations

Accepted Shopper Abbreviations  For consistency & clarity in the South Coast Shopper we use a set of standard classified ad abbreviations. They are listed here to help advertisers in writing their ads and readers in understanding the ads. (There is a fee for NOT abbreviating classified ads because our rates are based on these abbreviations)  UPDATE! We use abbreviations to save space in the paper, saving cost, that we pass on to our advertisers with lower classified rates than comparable papers across the Nation. A new way of naming products has developed that make product names unnecessarily longer. We will list these names in the traditional way to continue to save space in the paper, saving cost that we can continue to pass on to our advertisers. Examples: Ranger XLT by Ford would be abbreviated to: Ford Ranger XLT OceanRunner Rainbow Series by WildSeas would be abbreviated to: WildSeas Rainbow OceanRunner In the body of an ad always use numerals. Example: Newer 3bdr home. At the beginning of an ad spell out short numbers.
