As Oregon emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic, the state is getting a little attention about how local communities navigated through the crisis.
Portland, Bend, Gresham and Rockaway Beach are part of a special feature on ABC Television's Good Morning America showing how the state is bouncing back from the pandemic.
"Oregon Open For Business: A Rich Sense of Community Helped the State Survive" aired Thursday morning, June 17.
The television piece included video put together Tuesday by an eight member ABC crew that highlights the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad Coastal Excursion at Rockaway Beach.
The team interviewed the executive director as well as the founder and chief mechanical officer of the rail operations. The ABC segment also features Powell's Books and the Portland Rose Garden, a Gresham farm and a Bend business.
