Eugene, Oregon. Eugene’s science fiction theatre company, Trek Theatre, will be performing an adaptation of the movie Forbidden Planet at the Amazon Community Center amphitheater.
In this sci-fi classic, a spacecraft travels to the distant planet Altair IV to discover the fate of a group of scientists sent there decades earlier. When Commander John J. Adams and his crew arrive, they discover only two people: Dr. Morbius and his daughter, Altaira, who was born on the remote planet. Soon, Adams begins to uncover the mystery of what happened on Altair IV, and why Morbius and Altaira are the sole survivors.
Family friendly, but note there is some stage violence, so parents use their discretion.

Grandparent's Pioneer Tea
September 10 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM | Adult - $20, Children 15 & younger - $10
A special pioneer tea on will be held at the Pioneer Schoolhouse at the Camas Country Bakery, in honor of National Grandparent's Day. The event, a fundraiser for the living history programs at Singing Creek Educational Center (SCEC) located on the same site, includes art, poetry, live music, a raffle, fresh baked treats from the farm, and more. Guests are treated to a lovely presentation of tables laid with china dishes and fresh cut flowers. The atmosphere is light-hearted as families come to celebrate and honor their cherished grandparents and "grand-friends." The tea, provided by Mountain Rose Herbs and including blends such as "Grateful Heart" , will be served in pioneer fashion with costumed servers. Guests are encouraged to dress in pioneer style clothing to add to the ambience.
The historic schoolhouse (1899) was originally the Lower Fern Ridge Schoolhouse and was purchased and moved to the farm 3 years ago, where the owners, Tom and Sue Hunton, restored it as a community gathering place and for their bakery customers. They preserved the history literally carved into it– inscriptions of school children that attended as far back as 1900 can still be seen inside on the walls.
Advance tickets are required and can be purchased at www.SingingCreekCenter.org. The event will fill up fast, so early ticket purchase is encouraged. The facility is wheelchair accessible and there is plenty of parking.
Singing Creek Educational Center inspires children and families toward an appreciation of natural science and history through hands-on interactive learning. SCEC is located on a working farm just five minutes north of the Eugene Airport off Hwy 99, and just two miles south of Junction City. Find more information about ‘Letters from the Trail’ and other SCEC programs at www.singingcreekcenter.org.
Discovering Worthiness Work Group
Begining September 12, for 12 weeks | 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM | FREE (Registration required)
What does it mean to feel worthy? Do I deserve love and belonging? What barriers exist around self-worth for me? How can I identify and uncover these barriers? How can I instill a sense of worthiness in myself? How can I practice self-care? We are all worthy, however we do not all feel worthy. This workgroup will explore what self-worth means and how it affects our lives. We will learn what is holding us back from the realization of our own self-worth and how we must first discover and embrace this concept as truth before we can truly move forward in our healing and personal growth.
Who?: Self-identified women ages 18+ who have experienced sexual assault. Transwomen welcome!
