The Little Log Church and Museum in Yachats will present its annual Ceremony of Renewal and Commitment Tuesday, February 14th at 5:30 p.m. This will be the 22nd year the Log Church is offering couples the opportunity to renew their vows in a group setting. Both married and unmarried committed couples are invited to attend.
Mary Crook, the independent minister who has facilitated the event since 1996, reports that hundreds of couples have come to Yachats to renew their vows over the years. “For some couples it is a first-time experience; for others it has become an annual tradition – something fun and meaningful to do on Valentine’s Day,” she adds.
This year Ruth Mock, a popular local violinist, will play a selection of romantic pieces at the ceremony. In addition, each couple will be given a certificate as a memento of the occasion.
The Valentine’s Day vow renewal has become a popular fund raiser for the Little Log Church. A donation to the museum of $10 per couple is suggested. Since space is limited, reservations are required. For reservations couples should call Mary Crook, Events Coordinator, at 541-547-4547.
The historic Little Log Church has been a landmark in Yachats for over 85 years, and houses historic artifacts as well as being host to many weddings, artistic events, and small concerts. It is located at the corner of SW Third Street and Pontiac in the heart of town.
