Effective Communication Strategies
Individuals living with dementia often experience changes in behavior that can be confusing to friends and family. For caregivers, learning to decode messages through attitude, the tone of voice, facial expressions and body language can help both parties to connect and communicate in meaningful ways.
Effective Communication Strategies, 1:30pm at the Sisters Library, is a program provided by the Alzheimer’s Association® that explores how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s disease. By the end of the program, attendees will be able to:
• Explain the communication changes that take place throughout the course of the disease.
• Decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia and respond in ways that are helpful to the person.
• Identify strategies to connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
Effective Communication Strategies includes video interviews with professionals who explain critical aspects of communication throughout the Alzheimer’s journey and caregivers who share tips that have worked for their families.
This program is appropriate for community presentations, corporate employee wellness meetings, support group programming and more. https://alz.org/orswwa

Turkey: A Partner in Crisis
Turkey: A Partner in Crisis, Biro Yesilada, Professor of Political Science and International Studies, Contemporary Turkish Studies Endowed Chair, Portland State University
Of all NATO allies, Turkey represents the most daunting challenge for the Trump administration. In the wake of a failed military coup in July 2016, the autocratic trend in Ankara took a turn for the worse. One year on, an overwhelming majority of the population considers the United States to be their country’s greatest security threat. In this age of a worsening “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West, even more important than its place on the map is what Turkey symbolically represents as the most institutionally westernized Muslim country in the world.
This event is open to the public but seating is limited. Please RSVP to Anne Wilson at 541-383-1414. Event begins promptly at 2:15.

All ages are invited to watch and listen as the trains run. Lavrich’s collection represents trains of the 1920s and 30s made by Lionel, Dorfan, Ives and American Flyer.
