We wish you and yours a Happy Holidays this season!

Your holiday hustle is in full gear and the count down is on. Stop. Take a deep breath of that Noble Fir tree sitting in your living room (undecorated). Knock back an eggnog latte. Then head to the Old Mill District where you can pick up that sweater for your mother-in-law and sneak in some holiday fun and festive events in Bend. Bring on the cheer!
