The Best Things We've Seen This Week - Vol. 10

week 10 360x280

Welcome to The Best Things We’ve Seen This Week – Vol. 10! Now that we’re one week into Phase 1 of Oregon Governor Kate Brown’s plan for reopening, we are excited and grateful to be hard at work planning for how we can welcome you back into fun summer programming. 


Childcare is one program we already have up and running at Amazon, Petersen Barn and Sheldon community centers. You can register your kiddos online or call 541-682-5312. And check out this new video highlighting our amazing child care staff as they reflect on providing childcare for essential workers over the past few months. You all rock. 


Mark your calendars for 9 a.m. June 8, when registration for our summer camps will open. Keep a close eye on and our Facebook for more information.  


Even as we reopen, it remains important to not forget why we are all home in the first place, so our first link every week is to a resources page on the City of Eugene website where you can find the latest information on what the City is doing, key resources and related information. 


While you enjoy this weekend’s warmer weather and visions of the summer sunshine ahead, check out these things that have put smiles on our faces this week. Our first pick can’t help but make you feel good: southern Vegan Tabitha Brown’s TikTok videos that have become a viral sensation. Because sometimes you just need a hug.

Let’s head into the weekend with a smile

And one more thing...

We bring you to your peaceful center with this relaxing nature video. What, are cow bells not your jam? Have no fear, you can enjoy dozens of other outdoor Zen experiences from campfires to crickets.

Have a good weekend everyone.
