An Executive Board will be elected at the upcoming meeting of the Pacific City/Wood’s Citizen’s Advisory Committee and updates will be received regarding various concerns of the group. It’s planned for 10:30 a.m. on Saturday at the parking lot of South Tillamook County Library, 6200 Camp Street, in Pacific City. Those attending are asked to wear masks to protect the group from transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Their parking advisory committee plans to meet on Wednesday, Aug. 19 at Kiawanda Community Center; no time is advertised. For more information or to nominate an officer, go to or email

I took time last week to complete the survey online survey for Tillamook County Transportation District . They run “The Wave” bus service and Dial-a-Ride Countywide. Many of the proposed improvements mentioned in the survey include service in South Tillamook County. Let’s participate, in order to make our voices heard regarding how they can better meet our needs. Go to We’re encouraged to pass the link on to as many people as we possibly can. Responses are anonymous, but those who opt to may be entered into a drawing to receive a $25 Fred Meyer Gift Card.

Don’t forget that Tillamook Family Counseling Center (T.F.C.C.) is offering an ongoing Covid-19 support group that is free to residents County-wide and accessible online. The sessions are held from 1 until 2 p.m. on Thursdays weekly, and will continue indefinitely. Call T.F.C.C. at 503-842-8201 to be connected with log-in instructions. Zoom can be accessed online or by telephone, with or without vidocalling; data rates may apply depending on your telephone plan.

Remember too, that Neskowin Farmer’s Market continues operation from 9 until 1 p.m. on Saturdays at Neskowin Valley School on Slab Creek Road in Neskowin. The first hour is reserved for Seniors and those with compromised health. Pacific City Farmer’s Market is open on Sundays and features offerings other than just food. Hours are 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the parking lot of South Tillamook County Library, which is located off Camp Street North of the flashing light in Pacific City. Be patient, as both markets enforce protocols set in place to protect vendors & shoppers from COVID-19.
