The free event, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., will feature a mariachi band, student and family performances and refreshments. Participants are asked to bring a potluck dish to share.

SPRINGFIELD - Three local legislators will hold a Senior Issues Forum at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Adult Activity Center, 215 West C St., Springfield.

Oregon Sen. Bill Morrisette, Sen. Floyd Prozanski and Rep. Terry Beyer will focus on prescription drug plans and health care at both the state and the national level.

`I have been working with senior issues for over 10 years now and stuff is confusing," Morrisette said. "I hope we can make it a little simpler to understand.'
