Downtown Bend Ski Scavenger Hunt
After the Holiday Season, many people tend to stay inside with the colder temperatures and winter like weather (maybe). The Downtown Bend Business Association is hoping to provide a fun scavenger hunt to get people out of the house and to Downtown!
“It’s a fun way to get people out of their houses and possibly into a Downtown store they might have never gone into before,” said Public Relations woman, Michaela Beechem. “It’s a way for our local business owners to meet locals in a fun way! We have sixty stores participating and it will be a lot of fun for people of all ages!”
The event will run from January 7th- February 7th. It will be a partnership with Mount Bachelor and their ski groups for the season. Each store will have a passport in their location with a list of all participating stores. You pick up the passport, find the ski figurine in each store with the hashtag, #DowntownBendSkiHunt. If you post the picture with the hashtag you could be highlighted on the Downtown Bend Facebook page and Website.
The DBBA is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing the vitality of Downtown Bend. For more information, or to make a donation, please email email@example.com.

*Communication is more than just talking and listening – it’s also about sending and receiving messages through attitude, tone of voice, facial expressions and body language. As people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias progress in their journey and the ability to use words is lost, families need new ways to connect. Join us to explore how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer’s, learn to decode the verbal and behavioral messages delivered by someone with dementia, and identify strategies to help you connect and communicate at each stage of the disease.
*To learn more or register, please call 1-800-272-3900.
