Oops! Minor Correction in May 2016 ‘Pilot’


Oops, I think I lost track of the days of the week when writing the May 2016 “The Milwaukie Pilot” article for Ardenwald-Johnson Creek’s Neighborhood News.

The meeting date within the article was submitted the published with the upcoming meeting date as “Tuesday, May 23.” The correct date should read Monday, May 23. It was correct in the header.

Friends of Tideman Johnson May 7th


Hi all Friends of Tideman Johnson,

May is coming up quick! For our fabulous May 7th work party, we’re going to put some major hurt on invasive weeds. Our targets will be impatiens and blackberry. The good news is, impatiens are easy to pull. The bad news is, a lot of them are growing in our wetland. So bring boots if you have ‘em!

We will also have a fresh and tasty pile of mulch to spread on our plantings so they will be happy during the summer months. Yay, mulch!

Saturday May 7th, 9am – noon

Tideman Johnson Park
Meet up at the boardwalk

We’ll have tools, snacks, maybe even some extra boots.

See you out there!

Balfour Park Plant Sale May 15th

Balfour Park Plant Sale Fundraiser

By Lisa Gunion-Rinker

Hello neighbors,

Spring is here and this means it is time for the Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Plant Sale!

When: Sunday, May 15th from 11pm – 4pm
Where: 3012 S.E. Balfour Street (Near our future neighborhood park)

Please join the Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood for their plant sale! Bring your plant list, and plant enthusiasm, and come buy some lovely plants for your garden. Plants have been donated from some of our accomplished neighborhood master gardeners, and some of our wonderful neighborhood HPSO gardeners. (Lots of native plants this year!) This plant sale is a fundraiser for development of a new park in the Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood and will be located near the future new park. (Please bring cash or check only, as there will not be a debit/credit machine available at the checkout). If you have any questions, please contact Lisa at: 503-754-1655.  For more information, also check out our website: www.ardenwald.org  (*In case, you haven’t heard, the park master plan design has been completed and approved.)
