Iíve lived in several states here in the west in big cities and although there are plenty of situations that call out for help they often go unnoticed because of the sheer size of the cities and the number of people. It seems like every day there is something happening and unfortunately many get lost in the shuffle of big city life.
However here, and Iím speaking about
Imagine a leisurely drive to work at a resort restaurant on a Friday in late August with expectations of another good night in the middle of the tourist season. Suddenly out of nowhere a vehicle traveling at high speed operated by an allegedly alcohol impaired driver plows directly into you, killing him and sending you into a life that will require a tremendous amount of rehabilitation, time, expense and help from family and friends. Not something someone would wish for I can guarantee you.
However, that is precisely what happened to Yachats resident Michele Osterhoudt, a waitress at the Adobe Hotel and Resort restaurant. A long time
Today she is in rehabilitation and on the slow and painstaking road to recovery but as one can imagine, it will be a tough road. Her insurance has been tapped out and the other drivers canít be accessed for some time.
Consequently on Sunday October 26th †there will be benefit for Michele at the Yachats Lions Club. It will run from 3:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m and promises to be a great event.
For this benefit Yachats, Waldport, Seal Rock and surrounding communities including
Michele Osterhoudt didnít plan on getting run into head-on by an out of control piece of machinery, and the members of her community are trying to do their very best to help her overcome the tremendous hurdles she will be facing.
Please support this cause if at all possible, it will be greatly appreciated.
