It’s an annual tradition! The Brooks Resources wall calendar has graced the walls of Central Oregon homes and businesses for decades, and its back. We issued a contest earlier this fall to collect photographs from which we selected a winner to feature on the calendar. The winning entry from photographer Christian Murillo features a unique view of our beloved Cascade Mountains, taken from atop Mt Bachelor.
The theme of our photo contest was “resilience”, a nod to the events of the past several months and a celebration of Central Oregon’s enduring spirit of resilience. Our internal judging committee felt that Murillo’s image, which includes a captivating view of Broken Top and South Sister in the foreground, shows how the Central Oregon community is emerging stronger than ever from recent challenges.
The statement included on the 2022 Calendar encompasses this perspective, with the words:
“Just like the Cascade Mountain peaks emerging from the Central Oregon clouds, our community has proven its resilience, strength and solidarity even in the face of adversity. This stunning image, taken by local Bend, Oregon photographer, Christian Murillo, illustrates that there are things that truly endure, providing touchstones for our future.”
Several beautiful entries were received for our first-ever Brooks Resources wall calendar photo contest. Murillo’s winning image will not only be featured all over Central Oregon homes and businesses via the free calendar, but he also won a cash prize.
We are excited this year to partner with the Bend High School Ski Team to distribute free calendars to local businesses and gathering spots throughout the community. Calendars will also be available for touchless pickup in the entrance of the Brooks Resources corporate office, open Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm. Our office is located in downtown Bend, Oregon at 409 NW Franklin Avenue.
