The Atlantic: How Two Young Hippie Friends Grew Up to Live Very Different Lives

Kelly Flemming from Langlois made the Atlantic Magazine .. which makes her WORLD FAMOUS!

How Two Young Hippie Friends Grew Up to Live Very Different Lives

Each installment of The Friendship Files features a conversation between The Atlantic’s Julie Beck and two or more friends, exploring the history and significance of their relationship.

This week she speaks with two women who grew up in the hippie counterculture of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Stephanie Blank dated Kelly Fleming’s brother while attending an alternative high school, then followed him to Mexico where she met Kelly and the rest of the family, who were living on a converted school bus while they traveled around. The romance didn’t last, but Stephanie’s friendship with Kelly did, even as they grew up and their lives took very different paths.

The Friends:

    Stephanie Blank, 65, a writer and the owner of a home-accessory business, who lives in Marina del Rey, California
    Kelly Fleming, 63, a fiber artist and substitute teacher who lives in Langlois, Oregon

Just Jensens A Woodwind Quartet

Date: 

Sunday, January 26, 2020 - 3:00pm

 

Come enjoy a concert by Just Jensens at 3:00 p.m. on January 26, who will perform an assortment of contemporary and classical music in arrangements customized for this unique group. Though the group hails from Coos Bay/North Bend area, their roots are in the Langlois area.

 

Three sisters grew up in Denmark, Oregon, and their sister-in-law (Judy Marsh Jensen) in Port Orford. The sisters, Judy Jensen Snyder, Peggy Jensen Christensen, and Bonnie Jensen Cox, were children of Charlie Jensen, originator of the Langlois and Port Orford band programs and instrumental music teacher for the 2CJ District for 12 years. Jensen and his wife, Wilma, established a music store in Port Orford in the 1960s that they later moved to the Pony Village Mall.

The four Jensen women formed their ensemble in 2006 and have performed in various venues over the years. All are members of the Bay Area Concert Band.

The Friends of the Langlois Library are pleased to offer this opportunity for the community to enjoy these musicians carrying on the legacy of Charlie Jensen.

The event is free, but donations will be appreciated.
