Giving Back

In the past several months, the Prineville – Crook County Chamber has been investing in our community.  We have spearheaded activities that monetarily benefitted the local FFA, The Community Baby Shower, The Holiday Partnership and Crook County 4H Archery.  All of the fundraisers required no money from the Chamber budget, but were able to raise funds with a little time, some volunteer help and getting the word out. 

One of our fundraising ideas came from another chamber in the state that holds 50/50 raffles at every Friday business event.  They allow different organizations and nonprofits to put their name in a drawing to determine who will be the recipient of raised funds.  Over the course of several weeks, the Prineville – Crook County Chamber Ambassadors promoted the 50/50 raffle at our Friday morning Chamber Perks and each week, their efforts help raise money to give to organizations within our local community.  To date they have collected money to benefit the Community Baby Shower, Holiday Partnership, and Crook County 4H Archery.

In October the Chamber started promoting the Candy Crawl and encouraged our local businesses to “dress up” their storefronts for the holiday.  Our staff came up with the idea to get corn stalks from the local land lab, which were donated to us for free. Our job was to do the manual labor of cutting, hauling and bunching them.  It took about less than ten volunteers and one hour to cut down three very full truck beds of corn stalks.  We recruited students needing community service hours to bunch the stalks and strip them of any remaining viable ears of corn still attached.  Our staff then donated over 100 ears of corn to the local food bank, and another large bunch to Rimrock Trails kitchen.  Local businesses then purchased the dried and bunched corn stalks (which we learned were also referred to as “fodder shocks”) for their Halloween décor.  When it was all said and done, our staff was only out a few hours, but we supplied food to our community, and raised over for FFA.

Our latest giving back campaign was the creation of the Charm Trail in Prineville. Designated merchants in town had bracelets and charms for sale that represented their business.  For the month of November, a shopper could get one charm for one can of canned food.  The campaign went better than planned with most of the involved businesses going through more than 100 charms in less than a months’ time.  And the amount of donated food has been overwhelming.  All food will be given to The Holiday Partnership, to support families with children, senior and disabled citizens in Crook County in need of food baskets.

One of my many goals being part of the Prineville – Crook County Chamber, is to partner with our non-profit entities and members to look for ways to GIVE BACK to our community.  It doesn’t always take deep pockets, but sometimes just a bit of creativity and some extra time.  I’d also like to pass this sense of giving back on to our members and businesses.  Giving back and volunteering in your community is a rewarding experience and have the potential to have a huge impact on a lot of people.  Choose a cause, charity or nonprofit that you believe in and make Prineville and Crook County a better place to live. It’s good for business.

Financial Advisor, DFP Financial and Consulting

I grew up on a small cattle ranch in rural Southern Oregon which taught me the values of hard work, family, and a rural way of life.  I made the move to Central Oregon in 1993 for all of its beauty and activities.  Over the last 3 decades in Central Oregon, I have seen and experienced the incredible growth and expansion of this wonderful area.  In 2018 my wife and I decided to return to a rural lifestyle in Crook County.  With its diverse community, wide variety, and ever-expanding industry, the area has maintained a small-town rural feel and culture.

In 2019 after 25 years in Insurance and Investments, my wife and I decided to open DFP Financial & Consulting, a Private Wealth Management, Planning, and Consulting Firm.   We completely enjoy the people, community and all Crook County has to offer.  Being part of the Prineville Chamber is an important focus for us to give back to and help the business of the community.

In our spare time we enjoy our family and grandchildren; camping, riding horses and doing all that Central Oregon and Crook County offers, and fly fishing the Crooked River as often as possible.

Recreation Coordinator, Crook County Parks & Recreation

I grew up on the North Oregon Coast in a small tight knit community. About 18 years ago my husband and I started traveling to Central Oregon a few times a year to escape the rain. We always talked about wanting to move to the Prineville area. We enjoyed the small town feel as well as the ranching lifestyle the area offers. In the fall of 2020 we made the move with our  three teenage daughters and we are so glad we did!

In the spring of 2021 I started with Crook County Parks & Recreation. A few months after that I took the Recreation Coordinator position. I love  working with Parks & Rec. I have met so many wonderful people in Prineville which has helped with adjusting to a new environment.

I got involved with the Chamber to learn more about the community and to grow relationships.

In my spare time I love working with my family on our ranch as well as watching my girls play sports and show livestock.

Owner - Bayberry Lane

My family has called Prineville home for several generations. Being born and raised in this amazing community, I have always felt so incredibly blessed. I strive to be an active part of the community and volunteer regularly. I am deeply involved in 4H, several youth sports programs, and have served on many other local boards and committees. 

My mom and I own a small downtown boutique called Bayberry Lane. Our motto is local people supporting local people. We enjoy being able to give back and strive to love the people of Prineville well. 

Being on the Chamber Board has allowed me to not only serve and express my opinions as a business owner, but also as a local who wants to foster a community that is able to adapt to change while holding on to their core values.




Signet Realty

I am the Owner & Lead Coordinator at Firefly Events and I have been planning and coordinating events for over a decade.   I also recently took on a role as a local real estate broker here in Crook County. 

I grew up around southern Oregon. I made a road trip to Prineville with a cousin, on that trip I was introduced to a handsome young Prineville man that later became my husband. I love Prineville and although I wasn’t raised here over the last 16 years it truly has come to feel like my hometown.

I was working for a business that was a Chamber member and I was looking for opportunities to get involved in the community. After several years of attending Chamber functions I was encouraged to join the Ambassador team and then the Board. It has been a great learning experience and a lot of fun to be part of the Chamber both as a member and on the Board.

I love the weather in Prineville. After growing up in the valley with so many days of rain, I truly appreciated having (mostly) defined seasons. Summertime in Prineville is definitely my all-time favorite! We enjoy paddle boarding at Ochoco reservoir, swimming at the Prineville reservoir, floating the refreshing Crooked River, hiking the Barnes Butte or Chimney Rock trails and riding our ATV’s on the many OHV trails.

Chiropractor, Slater Chiropractic

I was born and raised in Prineville where I graduated from Crook County High School in 2009.  After that, I moved to Portland where I attended both Pacific University and the University of Western States for Chiropractic School. 

After ten years, I returned to Prineville and am now an Associate Chiropractor at Slater Chiropractic.

Since moving back, I have enjoyed how close this community is and realized how much I missed all that Crook County has to offer compared to the big city.  I started attending Chamber events to become more involved in our community and am excited to continue working with the Chamber as Vice President of the board.

I love spending my free time with friends and family, and enjoy getting out to explore all of Central Oregon.  I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, camping, kayaking and many other outdoor activities available in this beautiful area I get to call home.
