We would like to thank all of the local restaurants and vendors who helped support approximately 220 firefighters with meals and supplies during the recent Monty and Bean Creek fires on the Sisters Ranger District. Smaller fires like these do not get national caterers, which are in extremely short supply this year for a variety


At least three of the restaurants (Martolli’s, Angeline’s, and Mazatlan) significantly changed their operating schedule on very short notice by either closing to the general public or asking their staff to work late into the night. Angeline’s also postponed their annual staff-appreciation rafting trip so the firefighters would have hot breakfasts and healthy meals. We appreciate your efforts!

Thanks to: Rays Food Place – Sisters; Tate & Tate Catering; Martolli’s Pizza of Sisters, Angeline’s Bakery; Mazatlan – Redmond; Regio’s Café – Redmond; Subway – Sisters/Bend; Olive Garden – Bend; Sandwich Factory – Prineville; and Bi-Mart – Sisters (for Gatorade, which nobody else could supply because of the Gatorade shortage).
