Fall is settling in quickly in Bend.
We still have a few busy event weekends left, and the recent hot, dry weather in the PNW has kept plenty of our fire resources busy and engaged…
But days are starting to get shorter and it’s easy to start reflecting back on the year— as always with a mix of joy and sorrow and a deep love for our community at AdvMed.
