About Grace House:
Grace House is a shelter for single adult homeless and disadvantaged women without children. It is where they can find refuge, support, grace, hope, and love. Grace House empowers women through positive support, basic life-skills, educational and training opportunities, and guidance to help those in need make viable life choices to help them realize their goal to be self-sufficient.

Community assistance to help Grace House with this initiative in continuing the Education and Training Fund is a giant step toward helping these women achieve their goals through affordable and appropriate educational training and materials. Please consider visiting Grace House to see first hand the women whose lives we are changing and let others know about our cause and upcoming event.

Mar 06   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Mar 10   Salem Town Hall Meeting w/ Congressman Kurt Schrader
Dear Friends -
 
As winter comes to an end, I'm hard at work on issues that are important to Oregon's Fifth Congressional District.  I'm working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to build a strong coalition of like-minded problem solvers to promote fiscally responsible legislation, strengthen our education system and ensure the continued strength of our national security. In the coming weeks and months, I will keep you updated on my progress as these are all issues that I know are important to you.
 
This Tuesday I'll be hosting a town hall in Salem and I'm looking forward to talking about the work I'm doing on your behalf.  Meetings like this are a great opportunity for us to visit, talk about what's been going on in Congress, and find out ways that my office can be helpful to you.

Mar 13 - Mar 14   Marion Soil & Water Conservation District Native Plant Sale
Take advantage of a Marion Soil & Water Conservation District tradition! Join us for our thirteenth annual native plant sale in 2015. Each March, we hold this sale to encourage more people to use native plants in their yards, on their farms, or at their businesses. Native plants help enhance your yard or garden by providing food and shelter for birds and other wildlife. Also, once established, they require less water and maintenance as they are already adapted to our climate and soils.

Additional workshops at the sale include plant identification help, demonstrations on composting, and the opportunity to chat with plant experts and master gardeners. For more information on available plants and pricing, please visit our website.

Apr 03   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Apr 17   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

May 15   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Jun 05   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Jul 03   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!

Aug 07   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!

Aug 21   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

We value the relationships we have built with both venues and exhibitors and enjoy working together to put on a great bridal event. The professional groups we belong to help us stay on top of the business community locally and in the bridal business community around the world.

Nov 06   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!

Dec 04   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Jan 15   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
I am also collecting clean, empty egg cartons for Marion-Polk Foodshare's Table of Plenty.   Full ones work too :)
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Mar 04   Free Pain Clinic @ Jade Earth Acupuncture
It's First or Third Friday -- that means Jade Earth Acupuncture, LLC is hosting another FREE pain clinic today.
 
Why?
 
"May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you."  
-Saint Terese of Lisieux
 
Salem is an amazing place to live - and we want to be part of helping make it that.  We love you, our neighbors.  Thank  you for being part of this great city.
 
Sign up for an hour appointment at :  http://jadeearthacupuncture.fullslate.com/services/728
Walk in sometime during the hour you sign up for; noon block please be here at noon.
 
Anyone with current pain is encouraged to come.
Format is group treatment (privacy must be waived - nothing personal is discussed); you are seated in a room with several other people, and get approximately 5 minutes of the acupuncturist's time to focus on one area of pain. Patients usually find at least 50% of their pain relieved during treatment. You do not need to be a current client; bring your friends to try it out!
 
Please DO:   Eat before treatment, and abstain from caffeine / nicotine before treatment.
 
Please DO NOT:  Wear perfume / cologne; have given blood within the last 48 hours; be pregnant; ever have fainted or had a dizzy spell from needles.  We can treat pregnant women and those who faint in private clinic only.

While acupuncture is a form of therapy and not a magic one-treatment cure, some people have experienced (atypically) lasting relief just attending the first and third Friday clinics. Come check it out!

Treatment is 100% free; however, there will be a donation box (if you feel moved to give) to collect funds for a local charity, as always.  Over the years, you have given several thousand dollars to dozens of charities in town.  Wow!  Thank you!
 
Today's charity is Michael the Archangel, a Pregnancy Resource Center.

Michael the Archangel is a non-profit, inter-denominational Christian organizations dedicated to the protection of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The various pregnancy support services offered by Michael the Archangel are focused on aiding the spiritual and material needs of every mother and the child she carries. We also provide support services to families of young children, as well as educational services for the community.
 
We are our community!
 
Thank you all for your continued support.

Remember we've moved!
