Can you Believe it's February?
 
There are many great things happening in our area! The Compass highlights a few of those things that Eastern Oregon Business Source has had an opportunity to help with. The updates are written to both share the news and to share best practices. When people work together, share information, and think regionally, the sky is the limit as to what is possible. "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." Harry S Truman, 33rd president of US (1884 - 1972). This popular quote says it all and the groups of people that truly embrace the message get the most done in the best way. Enjoy! Susan
