Tubas, a choir and a chorus will continue a holiday tradition on Friday at the Shedd Concert Hall.

The Oregon Tuba Association's 27th annual concert will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the concert hall, 868 High St.

The Cascade Community Holiday Chorus and the Oregon Children's Choir will join the tubas, leading the audience in traditional holiday carols.

The event is free, but a donation of canned food for FOOD for Lane County or a new toy for the Toys for Tots campaign is encouraged.

Speakers will address

The City Club of Eugene on Friday will ask a dozen speakers, `If you could give the community any gift, what would it be?'

The club will ask six speakers the same question on Dec. 23, and allow people in the audience to share their thoughts on the topic.

The meetings begin at 11:50 a.m. at the Hilton Eugene. Admission is $3.

Christian Peacemaker Teams report planned

The Pacifica Forum will be held at 4 p.m. Friday at 128 Chiles Hall on the University of Oregon campus.

The topic will be "Christian Peacemaker Teams," a report on these teams that have figured prominently in recent news from Iraq.

Admission is free. For information, call 344-0483.

Speaker to discuss

charter school movement

Rob Kremer, of Brainstorm NW magazine, will present "Charter Schools: Evolutionary Reform of the Public School System," at the final segment of the education series of the Rubicon Society.

The luncheon meeting will be held at noon Thursday at the Pearl Street Ice Cream Parlor & Restaurant, East 13th Avenue and Pearl Street. For information, call 431-7359.

`Carriers who Care' project exceeds goal

The "Cans for Carriers who Care" food collection program exceeded the effort's goal by 18,000 pounds of food.

The campaign was held the past two weeks, with U.S. Postal carriers picking up food left at mailboxes. In all, 140,000 of food was collected to benefit FOOD for Lane County.

That number is expected to rise as food collected in rural routes is added to the total. Last year, 127,000 pounds of food was collected.
