Tideman Park Work Party Season Finale with Barbecue

Hello all Friends of Tideman Johnson,

I hope you enjoyed a happy and peaceful Memorial Day holiday yesterday.

This coming Saturday is our last work party in Tideman Johnson this season. That means we’ll wrap up with our annual BBQ – a great opportunity to express our appreciation for our fabulous volunteers and our fabulous Portland Parks & Rec support staff who help us do our best for Tideman Johnson Park.

This month we’ll be watering and weeding our recent planting at the east end of the park, along the Springwater trail. For anyone who enjoys pulling invasives out of the wetland, we’ll also be sending an assassin squad for one last pass at the impatiens taking over our little pond. Bring your boots!

The forecast is for warm weather this Saturday. Fear not! we’ll have plenty of beverages to help keep you cool. Here are the details:

Saturday June 4th, 9am – noon
Meet up on the Springwater toward the east end (closer to 45th parking lot)
Annual Friends BBQ starts around noon.

Please RSVP so we get the right amount of Ottos sausages, and please do let me know if you have any dietary concerns.

We hope to see you out there!

Friends of Tideman Johnson

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.
