The City of Rogue River's Centennial Year DocumentaryPublished on Apr 13, 2013
—Rogue River, Oregon
The City of Rogue River, Oregon, celebrated its centennial year in 2012. Local videographer Randy Johnson produced this wonderful video which features the people, places, and events of the city's year-long celebration, "A Century of Hometown Pride." It's a time capsule; an exciting glimpse of a vibrant, American river community in the Pacific Northwest. It includes the Whiskerino Contest, the 59th Annual Rooster Crow, the Woodville Museum with its Native American and pioneering exhibits, beautiful aerial photography, the Ride the Rogue bicycling event, the grape harvest at Evans Creek Vineyard, segments on the riverside Rogue River Greenway, Palmerton Park, Wimer Bridge (one of only 50 remaining covered bridges in the State of Oregon), the Rogue River Fire Department, Mercy Flights, and the October 2 car-lift operation on the river by Waterway Recovery.
A year and a half in the making, Rogue River's Centennial Year was produced independently by videographer Randy Johnson. DVDs of the half-hour program will be available by early summer 2013.
