Yachats Big Band to host benefit for Little Log Church

This Saturday, Aug. 24, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Yachats Big Band will host a benefit dance in support of the Friends of the Little Log Church and Museum, who are raising funds for a restoration of the historical Yachats building.

The Little Log Church, which has been at the corner of West Third and Pontiac Streets for 90 years, has suffered from progressive deterioration over the years. Because repair is not a practical option, the Little Log Church Board, along with city representatives and professional consultants, agreed to remove the existing building and replace it with one that replicates the original structure. All artifacts, furnishings, collections and historical documents will be preserved and returned to the replicated building.

The Yachats Big Band will perform at the Yachats Commons, located at 441 Highway 101 N. The suggested donation for the evening’s entertainment is $5 per person. Tax deductible donations to the Friends of the Little Log Church and Museum would also be appreciated.
