Unfortunately we had to cancel our Wreath Spruce-up Ball due to the increasing numbers of COVID19. This event would have allowed a group of volunteers to come together and beautify the wreaths that hang in Downtown Bend.
As many of us have had to do in a multititle of ways since COVID19, this was a quick plot shift and the DBBA had to shift gears quickly to find a way to get a plethora of wreaths cleaned, fluffed, and redecorated quickly so that they could be installed in Downtown Bend.
DBBA Staff and Board rallied together to make this happen. This included board and staff taking wreaths home to complete the job. We'd like to give a big shout-out to aos Skincare and Spa and The Wine Shoppe in Downtown Bend - two businesses and board members who really came to the rescue - taking lots of wreaths home to decorate and bring back to be installed in Downtown Bend.
This year we've worked to transform the the decorations to a Winter theme - including solar-paneled warm white fairy lights. Our hopes is that this will allow us to keep the wreaths up longer (into Jan, Feb and March) when we're still experiencing a lot of darkness and snow in Downtown Bend. Let us know what you think when your shopping and dining in Downtown Bend!
