On February 27, Peace of Mind Pacific County (POMPC) hosted their monthly awareness dinner meeting. This months meeting included a community screening of the film Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope.
32 guests attended the screening, which introduces the impacts of Adverse Child-hood Experiences (ACEs).
Along with the film, Ocean Beach School District’s Family Resource Coordinator, Elly Rosaire, presented information about the science of ACEs and answered questions.
On March 5, POMPC held their 4th annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser, hosted by the Peninsula Baptist Church in Ocean Park. Dinner coordinator and board member Kat Erskine, board secretary and chef extraordinaire Nikki Fortuna, and treasurer Doug Levitt, put on another great event along with wonderful volunteers.
The tables were dressed particularly lovely this year, in a red theme, with tiered cookie trays, red carnations, and welcoming pitchers of ice tea and Caesar salad starters.
POMPC is especially grateful to Ocean Park Lutheran Church, Peninsula Baptist Church, pastor Chris, secretary Becky Johnson, Dawn, Deb Wells, Karen Hintz, Sarah Gentry, Erin Kirby, staff at Willapa Behavioral Health, and Chuck at Sid’s market in Seaview.
A huge thank you to all the good folks of the community who turn out, their ticket dollars and donations helping POMPC to provide free textbooks for their county-wide WRAP and Mental Health First Aid classes, for both children and adults.
