St. Charles Health System to celebrate its 100th birthday Sept. 15 in Drake Park

Sept. 7, 2018

BEND, Ore. – Join St. Charles caregivers and fellow community members for the St. Charles Centennial Celebration on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 2 to 5 p.m. in Drake Park. The party will include cake and ice cream, fun activities for the kids, great live entertainment featuring St. Charles’ own Bill Keale and more.

Take a step back in time and walk through the St. Charles history tent to learn more about how St. Charles evolved from five Sisters of St. Joseph on a mission to provide health care to a raw logging town, to the regional health system it is today. And cheer on St. Charles caregivers as they perform in the return of the St. Charles Talent Showcase. Be sure to bring blankets or low-profile chairs for seating.
