Dallas Family Medicine

Dallas Family Medicine is committed to serving our community as providers of healthcare and medical education.

Dallas Family Medicine was founded in 1951 by Dr. William Charles and Dr. Leroy Casey. These two men of “greatest generation” returned from World War II as decorated serviceman and completed their medical training at Oregon Health and Science University. They opened their clinic on Main Street, above John Brown’s Pharmacy, across from the court house. After 32 years of practice, they sought out a new doctor to join them; Dr. Chris Edwardson came in 1983, and they formed a new partnership which has become Dallas Family Medicine, LLC as you see it today.

Born and raised in Canada, Dr. Chris Edwardson pursued a career in medicine since announcing his intentions at five years of age. After completing his medical education at University of Saskatoon he joined the founding partner of Dallas Family Medicine and has worked to continue their legacy. Through several building additions and remodels, staff changes, economic fluctuations, and cultural shifts in medicine, Dr. Edwarson leads the staff in keeping the primary focus on their patients. He and his wife Jeanne appreciate the opportunity to live and work in such a picturesque and warm community. They enjoy travel, entertaining, and spending time with their grandchildren.

In 1989, the founding partners died, a few months apart, but their legacy of caring and service continues. Dallas Family Medicine proudly cares for its community daily, and regularly serves around the world with medical missions that have taken them from Mississippi to Malawi and many points between; including Jamaica, Kenya, and Costa Rica.

Each physician and staff member of Dallas Family Medicine offers their unique experience and training, uniting together to put patient needs first. Their patients are the reason they work. They believe their patients are the most important people in the clinic. Patients bring them their pain and suffering, and they are committed to car for them compassionately – with sensitivity and confidentiality. They are honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve them.

Currently the have five doctors on staff: Chris Edwardson, Stephen Chaffee, Julia Pulliam, Julia Balcom, and Faith Shinn. Each doctor strives to bring their unique backgrounds, and expertise to the availability of all of Dallas Family Medicine patients. Their unique backgrounds allowing for a broader ability to collaborate, and providing their patients with the best medical care possible.

Dallas Community Foundation

Local dollars helping local people. The Dallas Community Foundation was established in 1995 by a group of individuals who shared a common vision of a local fund that could give back to the Dallas community. Since then, the Foundation has helped people put their charitable dollars into their own community, giving a hand up to those in need.

Why make a gift to the Dallas Community Foundation? From the beginning their aim has been to give back to the Dallas community, and they have been established to do so for perpetuity. Foundation funds are professionally invested by Becker Capital Management, headquartered in Portland. This ensures to the best of their ability that the money you invest is properly cared for and applied, making a difference many times over. You can support a wide range of charitable causes with a single gift, or you can direct your gift to a specific cause through a designated fund. This allows Dallas Community Foundation to help you create a legacy as they are equipped to manage funds according to your intent. They are focused specifically on the Dallas community, keeping your dollars local, supporting the causes you care about. Dallas Community Foundation has the flexibility to meet community needs as they emerge and evolve, and the permanence to support future needs. They are here for Dallas, for good, for now, forever.

What do they do with your gift? Your gift to the Dallas Community Foundation is pooled with other funds for long term investment and maximum return. Annual earnings are given back to the community through scholarships and grants to nonprofit organizations. Currently they have over $2 million dollars under asset management, and have awarded over 582 grants and scholarships totaling in $950,050 back into the community. They carefully monitor and evaluate the use and effectiveness of the grant fund they disburse. As the community gives, the community grows- stronger, together.

This spring, Dallas Community Foundation board chair Bob Brannigan presented grants to 18 non-profit organizations serving the Dallas community. These grants will address a broad spectrum of issues and will directly serve seniors, youth and families in need. Congratulations grant recipients!

American Legion, Post 20

They have been here, in Dallas, for more than 93 years, and are looking forward to serving many, many more years with our help and participation!

The American legion is the nation’s largest wartime veterans’ service organization with a membership of 2.4 million men and women.

All veterans of honorable service during a wartime period, and those currently serving on active duty, are eligible to belong to The American Legion. Congress chartered The American Legion in 1919 as a veterans service organization. Since its founding, The American Legion has remained focused on activities that honor God and country.

The American Legion is also the most active veterans organization in striving to protect benefits earned by all veterans through honorable military service. The American Legion continues to fight for the full repeal of the Disabled Veterans Tax (sometimes called “Concurrent Receipt”), a strong veterans health care system and strong quality of life for U.S. military members and their families.

As the war on terrorism continues U.S. forces remain deployed in countries around the world. Today’s service members are some of the finest men and women ever to put on uniforms, yet they are over-deployed and under-paid. Working with the Commander-in-chief, Congress, and the Department of Defense, The American Legion seeks to ensure that the military’s pay, benefits and force readiness needs are met.

Although The American Legion has international presence, it is more that simply a veteran organization – it is very much a community-based service organization. Among the programs conducted regularly are community Veterans Day and Memorial Day observations, Blue Star Salutes honoring local military families and supportive businesses, American Legion Baseball, Junior Shooting Sports, a High School Oratorical contest and American Legion Boys State and Nation. The American Legion is one of the nation’s largest supporters of Scouting and the largest single donor organization of blood to the American Red Cross. Members of local American Legion posts provide volunteer funeral details to render military honors for fallen comrades. The American Legion’s child Welfare Foundation donates over a quarter of a million dollars each year to worthy children and youth programs. The American Legion’s National Emergency Fund provides immediate financial assistance to fellow Legionnaires and their families displaced by natural disasters. Legionnaires record over a million volunteer hours annually in VA medical facilities throughout the nation and they reinvest millions of dollars back into local communities through cash donations.

Thank you American Legion for serving those that served our country.

Wake Up Wednesday

For the last month now Dallas Chamber of Commerce has been participating in Wake Up Wednesday alongside your business neighbors. During this time we are able to connect with local business, share both struggles, and solutions, and grow as a community.

The Wake Up Wednesday today was hosted by Citizens Bank, and Jake shared with us what is new with Citizens Bank. Recently they celebrated their 60th anniversary of the first Citizens Bank opening in Corvallis. There was even a photo available for their grand opening! Jake discussed how Citizens Bank focuses on their customers and not with meeting a sales quota like bigger banks do. If they do not have the best option for you they will send you to someone who does. In this day and age, such banking transparency is appreciated!

Johan Vineyards

At Johan Vineyards, they are committed to meticulous vineyard management practices. Highlighted by their biodynamic farming methods and accents of permaculture design. Biodynamic farming focuses on the entire farm as one living organism. They farm to mimic the natural microbiological ecology of the soil where vines evolved. This produces vines more resistant to disease and creates a healthy natural immune system within the vine. This focus also increases the assimilation of nutrients naturally present in the soil and creates a more efficient production of secondary metabolites.

Johan sees their farm as a holistic system that will showcase its own identity through the fruit it develops. Biodynamic farming combines the knowledge of premium organic viticulture practices with an understanding on how to treat the vineyard and its surrounding areas in order to achieve desired long-term farming results.

Their vineyard is broken into multiple blocks that feature thirteen different varieties with ten clones of Pinot Noir and seven of Chardonnay, multiple rootstocks across varying aspects and soil types. The combination of all of these factors creates a diverse system, providing Johan Vineyards and the winery customers they work with an array of options and choice of fruit to achieve a complexity and balance in the resulting finished wines.

Johan Vineyards resides on 85 acres of gently sloping estate vineyards in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Adjacent to the Van Duzer corridor, their vineyards are blessed with afternoon ocean breezes and cool evening temperatures that are ideal for ripening Burgundian varietals. It is the marine influence, in combination with their marine sedimentary soils, that gives Johan Vineyards its unique terroir.

From February through December they open their tasting room doors to the public from 12 pm to 5 pm daily. Their wines are produced with the intention of conveying their farm’s individuality, and tasting at the estate provides the clearest expression of their sense of place. They offer a rotating flight of five wines for their tastings; charging $10 per tasting, refunded with a bottle purchase. For groups of six or more please contact them prior to assure a more intimate and attentive experience.

Capitol Auto – West Valley

It’s not just about cars. Dallas has had two auto lots for many, many years. This week’s highlight is the one downtown; Capitol Auto. We still hear people call it McMullin’s Chevrolet, but they have truly expanded in recent years. Capitol Auto they strive to treat you the way you want to be treated; looking into each customer’s unique need and wants. They pride themselves on listening to their customers instead of just selling them a care.

Automotive service shouldn’t throw a wrench in your plans either. They understand the importance of your vehicle. Their factory trained service team is fast, efficient, and friendly so that they can get you back on the road, and on your way as quickly as possible.

What you may not realize is the large-scale impact Capitol makes in our whole region. Yes, they provide folks a place to get from A to B, and that is great. But from where we’re standing the way they give back is a value that is immeasurable. They have supported the impactful efforts of many organizations outside of their market. Each year they hold a month-long, company-wide fundraising drive for United Way. They hose several food collections and fundraising events, as well as encourage their employees to get involved with charities that personally matter most to them. That’s not even mentioning how they help our own Summerfest, Sounds of Summer, Bounty Market, Winterfest, and Freedomfest. These folks give back.

Their efforts don’t just end with the customers either. They are #3 in Oregon Business top 100 Large companies to work for. This is not their first year winning this accolade either, also placing in the top ten in 2016. They believe a happy employee is a good employee.

Thanks, Capitol Auto.  We think you’re great.
