I VOW TO BE A RESPECTFUL GUEST IN BEND’S INDOOR AND OUTDOOR SPACES.
I’LL MAKE MY OWN MEMORIES, BUT NOT MY OWN TRAILS.
I WILL BE RESPONSIBLE WITH FIRE DURING DRY SUMMER MONTHS AND WITH ICE ON SLICK WINTER ROADS.
I WON’T RISK LIFE OR LIMB (HUMAN OR SAPLING) FOR MORE LIKES.
I’LL BE FRIENDLY AND COURTEOUS, BECAUSE THAT’S THE BEND WAY.
IF I CAN’T FIND A PARKING SPOT, I WILL NOT INVENT MY OWN.
WHEN PLAYING OUTSIDE, I’LL PREPARE FOR SHIFTS IN WEATHER AND RANDOM EPISODES OF MAGIC.
I’LL PACK IN REUSABLE CONTAINERS AND PACK OUT ALL MY TRASH.
I WILL USE MY TURN SIGNAL OFTEN AND MY CAR HORN SELDOM.
I PROMISE TO LEAVE BEND BETTER THAN I FOUND IT.
