NOW plans ‘finger-food’ potluck on Nov. 29

Because of the positive and large response to its annual dinner, the Central Oregon Coast Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is holding a special meeting for prospective, new and “seasoned” members on Tuesday, Nov. 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Newport High School’s Boone Center, 322 NE Eads St.  

Those attending are asked to bring their favorite “fingerfood” to share (but this is not a requirement to attend). The meeting will provide an opportunity to learn about NOW, meet other like-minded individuals, and plan for the future of Central Oregon Coast NOW.  

“We will be discussing what committees people would like to participate in, the Jan. 21 Women’s March, Jan. 22 Roe vs. Wade Day, the Oregon NOW annual meeting to be held in Newport on April 9, 2017, and other upcoming actions,” organizers said.  

Reservations are not required but would be helpful for planning purposes. People can email for more information or to let the group know they plan to attend.  

Information is also available by calling 503-577-3585 or viewing the group’s website at  

The Central Oregon Coast Chapter of NOW works locally and nationally to eliminate discrimination in all sectors of society, to assure access to reproductive health care, to eliminate domestic and sexual violence, and to promote equality and justice in our community.
