Capitol Christmas Tree

With Thanksgiving still over a week away it may be a little too early to get into the holiday spirit, but the Christmas spirit was in full swing at The Old Mill in Bend as the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree made a stop on it’s way to D.C. The tree was accompanied by holiday activities, and of course, Santa made an appearance. Central Oregon Daily’s own Anyssa Bohanan got in the Christmas spirit herself and headed down to the Old Mill to see the festivities first hand.

Students Give Back on MLK Day

On Monday Oregon State University – Cascades students used their day off to give back to the community during their third annual Martine Luther King Jr. Day of Service.

Dozens of OSU-Cascades students spent their holiday volunteering for various non-profit organizations in Bend. Throughout the day student volunteers showed up to help at places like Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center and the The Environmental Center.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan caught up with the volunteers at two other locations Monday morning.

Recognition for Inclusion

On Thursday Bend High School received national recognition from the Special Olympics for the schools efforts in providing inclusive sports and activities for its students with and without disabilities.
