As you may know, August 31st is Chuck Arnold’s final day as Executive Director of Downtown Bend. Chuck will soon begin a new opportunity working for the City of Redmond in Economic Development. If you could buy stock in a community, Redmond would be a strong buy with Chuck on board.
You’ve likely encountered “Downtown Chuck” on the streets. He’s the guy giving directions to tourists, saying “Hello” to anyone he encounters and constantly picking up litter along the way. Chuck is the kind of guy who yells, “Yeahhhh, Cycle Pub!!!” when it passes. He’s always been full of energy to help create a beautiful, thriving and friendly downtown.
Chuck will return to Downtown Bend to help run this year’s Oktoberfest event on September 18-19th. He’ll be the one wearing lederhosen and generally doing anything in his power to show others a good time.
Thanks for 10 great years! Those who love Downtown Bend are forever grateful for your service.
