So, you have purchased a home in Pendleton, from Chris at http://www.pendletonpropertys.com/, now what? Pendleton is great community that is centered around, well…. A GREAT COMMUNITY! Pendleton is known for the Pendleton Round-Up but that is another blog post, I want to focus on what makes Pendleton a great Community.
When I think of Pendleton, altruism comes to mind. A willingness of Pendletonians to think about others before themselves. I’m talking about non-profit organizations in Pendleton. I tried counting, but I lost count at 120 non-profit organizations in Pendleton alone! If you have a family and are buying a home in Pendleton, this should give you some comfort and if you are single, this is one of the most rewarding ways to meet new people. I am currently on The Pendleton Underground Tour board and was a 7 year board member of The Pendleton Air and Military Museum, which has given me many great friends and a sense of belonging. This gave me a connection to Pendleton and more importantly, a connection to the people of Pendleton; at a time I felt I had none. Immediately I started receiving, “Hi, how are you’s” and the “Smiles” that put an ease to a new and difficult experience. All I had to do was donate a little bit of my time and keep my mind open. If you are buying a home from or moving to Pendleton, keep Pendleton non-profits in mind.
PENDLETON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE , Pendleton, OR; CHILDRENS MUSEUM OF EASTERN OREGON, Pendleton, OR; KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS OREGON EDUCATION, Pendleton, OR; PENDLETON FOUNDATION TRUST, Pendleton, OR; OREGON SMALL SCHOOLS ASSN INC, Pendleton, OR; PENDLDETON BUCKAROO BOOSTER CLUB, Pendleton, OR; PENDLETON CITY POLICE ASSOCIATION, Pendleton, OR; PENDLETON FARMERS MARKET, Pendleton, OR.
