It is that time of year again to look at what has happened in Corvallis Oregon during the year 2013. It has taken several days to review the many thousands of photos that have been taken this year and select some that will adequately represent the different events and activities of life in Corvallis, Oregon.

There is the Arts, Outdoor Hiking, Civic and Business events as well as service organizations like the Kiwanis Club of Corvallis and City Club of Corvallis. The Corvallis Chamber of Commerce, Corvallis Independent Business Alliance and the Downtown Corvallis Association all play an important role in the Corvallis community.

Corvallis City Council, Mayor Julie Manning and City Manager Jim Patterson bring their respective skills to our community that make Corvallis what it is, a great place to live and work.

People are the ultimate measure of success. Corvallis has hundreds if not thousands of people that participate as volunteers to make our city what it is. People are our greatest resource and the citizens of Corvallis donate thousands of volunteer hours that make Corvallis a vibrant community always looking for ways to improve the quality of life for our residents.

I hope you will take some time to look through these 90 odd photos and see what makes Corvallis so great!
