A bit about the area, they are located near the Malheur National Forest and have fantastic parks and recreation spaces. The town has a sports complex and park that they maintain to foster youth and adult sports, hiking/walking, and provide a place to relax with friends. In the warmer months they have a pool that is open to the public. If this sounds like somewhere you can see yourself I'd love to discuss it further over the phone and get your information to the hiring team.
