September 1950 ‘Ardenwald News’

At the regular neighborhood meeting on February 22nd, the Neighborhood Association received a good copy of the September 1950 “Ardenwald News” generously donated by Ardenwald resident Sue Smith.

The 65-year old 12-page newsletter features neighborhood news, events, announcements, tips, recipes, and advertisements. The main feature story in the newsletter was about civil defense and atomic bombs, at a time when World War II wrapped up.

The Neighborhood Association will donate the historical newsletter to the Milwaukie Historic Society to be stored or displayed at the Milwaukie Museum.
