The 8th Annual Eugene Sunday Streets happening in the heart of Downtown Eugene.

Join us for 4 hours of biking, playing, live music and more! The 2018 route stretches from Monroe Park, down Broadway to Kesey square and around the Park Blocks on 8th and Oak Street.

KindTree STiLE Jewelry Class participants offer their beautiful and unique jewelry creations for sale. Prices are very reasonable and these talented students deserve your support. Check out the Facebook event page HERE.

Social Skills Outing
Oct 19 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The Lane County Chapter of the Autism Society of Oregon supports a Social Skills Class and Scheduled Social Outings on alternating months, in response to interest by participants in KindTree – Autism Rocks’ Support Group for adults on the autism spectrum. The classes and outings are designed for adults with high-functioning autism or Aspergers who can get around independently in the community.

During the Social Skills Class, conversation skills will be taught, role-modeled and practiced. The class is taught by Doris Germain, an Autism Specialist in the Linn-Benton School District. She has taught social skills at Autism Training and Support in Eugene. Her skill in teaching social skills has been learned from 20 years of working with people on the spectrum.

The Social Skills Class is taking place on the 3rd Monday of alternating months from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on 13th and Pearl in Eugene. The Social Skills Class will decide on the activity for the following month’s Social Outing. No support groups or social skills activities in August.

The Social Outing is taking place on alternating months on the third Friday evening of the month from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. or during the day on Saturday, depending on the activity chosen by the previous month’s Social Skills Class.

If you are interested or know someone who might be interested, call ASO Chapter Representative Mary-Minn Sirag at (541) 689-2228 or email her at sirag@mindspring.com.
