Discussion On Impact Of Japanese Tsunami Debris

Anyone who has questions on the impact of the debris from the Japanese tsunami heading toward the Oregon coast is encouraged to come to the Winchester Bay Community Center on Tuesday, August 21st. Many questions have been asked about radiation effects, what kind of debris will be coming to our shores, will it continue to arrive, what to do if you find personal items, will the abundance of trash litter our beaches and who pays for the cleanup? There will be a short presentation by Dorie Smith of Shelf Reliance, a program of emergency preparedness food with a tasting. Shelf Reliance, through their products, offers the tools the public will need to create a comprehensive, customized emergency preparedness plan. On August 21st at 6pm, there will be a public forum headed by Robert Smith, the Coastal Response Coordinator of the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department to discuss the issues, answer questions from the public and let you know how you can assist. The meeting will be held at the Winchester Bay Community Center at 635 Broadway in Winchester Bay. There will be apple pie and cheddar cheese for all. Sponsored in part by the Winchester Bay Merchants, CERT and The Friends of Winchester Bay. For more information call Joe Coyne 541-271-2103
