Our PINK issue for October highlights not only healthcare providers
helping in the fight against breast cancer, but you'll also find
great local resources to share and our cover mom Kathy Tucker's
Many organizations will host events during October to raise funds,
raise awareness or simply support survivors and women currently
battling the disease. One of the events we were recently made
aware of is: Let's Make Pink Just Another Color!
The Tri-Cities Cancer Center kicks off National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month on Monday, October 1 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm at the
Cancer Center on Deschutes. You may have seen the flyers and
information around the community, but we were fortunate to find out
a little more information to share with you!
Open House with educational "Theaters" covering the
First 200 guests will receive a complementary event
It's important to note that The Tri-Cities Cancer
Center is able to offer programs like this, at no cost, thanks to
community support through the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation.
Donations to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation stay local and
provide valuable non-reimbursed cancer programs and services for
patients, their families, and the community.
If you attend the event Monday evening, post a comment to
our FB page or here on the blog! We'd love to hear your
thoughts, what touched you and what you learned.
Fall reminds us of changing leaves, pumpkin pie and of course
sports physicals if your child participates in sports. Even if your
child doesn't need a sports physical you can make a doctor visit
fun for the whole family on Saturday, October 9th,

Care facility, located at 3950 Keene Road, will offer you a chance
to meet providers with a variety of activities that are sure to
entice the kiddos.
Face painting, a bike rodeo, bouncy house, pumpkin painting and
even snacks will be available to families from 12 to 2 pm on the
9th. In addition, you can enter to win raffle prizes
such as a TV, iPod shuffle, digital camera and more. Make the most
of your trip by getting a free seasonal flu shot (for the first 300

As summer winds down, something more than school is beginning
in Tri-Cities... a new children's singing and performing group
called TaVaci School of Performing Arts opened this August and is
now enrolling for Fall Semester classes! TaVaci
(tuh-vah-see) uses the performing arts as a
vehicle to teach life skills to children, ages four through twelve.
The educational program teaches singing, drama, rhythm,
choreography, and theory with an emphasis on proper vocal
technique. Katee James, Tri-Cities' TaVaci director, will lead
weekly classes at her home music studio, as well as directing
biannual concerts. For more information about class days and times,
call (509) 547-4745. To register for classes, simply email email@example.com
for a registration packet. Check out this great
Current TaVaci classes:
Tuesday 4:00-5:00pm (ages 4-7, pre-k to 2nd grade)
Thursday 4:00-5:00pm (ages 8-12, 3rd to 6th grade)
As enrollment grows, more classes will be offered to ensure
class sizes remain small for an optimal learning environment. All
classes will be held at my home studio in West Pasco.
Just when you thought it was safe to go outside, there's a very
good reason to stay indoors! On a weekly basis, the Sun Mart
Reading Van, sponsored by Sun Pacific Energy, is sharing the love
of reading with kids around the community. Through a partnership
with the Mid-Columbia Reading Foundation, volunteers are focused on
visiting daycare centers, preschools and in-home childcare centers
to lead story times and get kids excited about reading. The kids
receive a free book, and teachers or providers often receive
additional activity ideas to extend the story experience. If you
are interested in having the Sun Mart Reading Van visit your
child's preschool or care provider, or just want to volunteer some
time to read to children, contact the Reading Foundation at
