Want to stay involved and know what is going on in Crook County? Then What’s Brewing? is where you want to be every Wednesday morning from 7 to 8 a.m., at Meadow Lakes Restaurant. This marks the third year that Crook County Foundation will be bringing What’s Brewing? to keep you informed on important issues facing Crook County and our community.
   Crook County Foundation received a grant from the Pacific Power Foundation for the second year to bring a wide range of speakers from October 2012 through May 2013 free to the public. The coffee is free, too, and breakfast is available to those who would like to order off the Meadow Lakes Restaurant menu while they listen to the guest speaker.
   This week’s speaker will be Roger Lee, Executive Director of EDCO (Economic Development of Central Oregon), who will be speaking on “What is in the future for economic development in Central Oregon?” Roger will discuss what economic development will look like in the region over the next few years and what areas Prineville and Crook County are most competitive for attracting new businesses.
   If you are interested in attending What’s Brewing? it is held every Wednesday from October through May at 7 to 8 a.m. at Meadow Lakes, except during Thanksgiving week, the last two weeks of December, and the week of spring break in March. Meadow Lakes is located at 300 S.W. Meadow Lakes Drive.
   The upcoming meeting and guest speakers will be listed in the Business Briefs each week. For more information regarding the Crook County Foundation or What’s Brewing?, you can contact Kristi Steber, Executive Director at 541-447-6909 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

   Bowman Museum will be hosting an Exhibit Open House on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Exhibits will include The Ponderosa Pine Capital of the World and The People and Land of Crook County. There will be refreshments, drawings, and music by Silverado. Located at 246 N. Main St., for more information contact 541-447-3715.
   The Sept. 25 Business Briefs stated that The City of Prineville will be publishing their City Council Agenda in the Central Oregonian starting Friday, Sept. 28. This was an error on my part. The City Council meets on Sept. 28. This was an error on my part, the City Council meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month; therefore they will be publishing the City Council Agenda in the Central Oregonian on the first and third Friday of each month on page A2, the Happenings page. I regret any inconvenience the error may have caused.
   Ladies Night Out Women’s Health Fair will be held tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 2 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the OSU Open Campus Building on Lynn Boulevard. Admission is free, for more information call 541-233-0706.
