BEND, OR -- Deschutes County is celebrating its Centennial throughout 2016. Kelly Cannon-Miller, with the Des Chutes Historical Museum, says there is a list of events so that everyone can get involved. "We’re the youngest county in the state; we’re the last ones that get to celebrate our Centennial birthday. So, we just decided to put on a whole bunch of fun things. We have some art contests, we have our 1907 Holsman car from the museum on display, traveling around the county all this summer, and we’ll be at the county fair, and we’re going to do some theater."
The county is now accepting submissions from local artists to create an official Centennial poster. " We would really like to have a Centennial poster that grabs everyone’s attention to say ‘hey, Deschutes County history matters,’ and highlights kind of those important aspects of our community and what makes Deschutes County great." Designs should represent the past 100 years of Deschutes County history and will be accepted through February 16. Click HERE
