Apples, Spice and Everything Nice

Whether you're picking apples with the family in Hood River or purchasing them from a local vendor, apples are a fall-time staple

Holiday Traditions 2020

Coming together in a world full of distance
Traditionally, the holidays are one of the happiest times of the year for families, bringing loved ones together from afar while engaging in traditions passed down through the years from great-grandparents to parents, and now onto the children. And for some, it's that special time to go on a much-needed family vacation.

Just a Snip Here

Sew Teach Me offers kids the opportunity to learn how to sew.
On a recent afternoon, the classroom at BJ's Quilt Basket on the south side of Bend was full of energy. It was time for the Sew Teach Me program to begin.

Thriving Youth

Boys and Girls Clubs of Bend teach core values.
When you picture your child after school, you probably want an image in your head of them running around with friends, eating a healthy snack or doing some other kind of enriching activity. What you don't want to picture is them sitting around, staring at a screen all day long.
