Tideman Johnson this Saturday, June 3rd – last of the season!

Howdy all Friends of Tideman Johnson,

Our last work party of the season is this Saturday, June 3rd – woo hoo!

We will be working to get things all tucked in and ready for summer (it will be summer, eventually, I trust!). The weeds are epic this year, so we’ll be clearing around the plants that we planted in March and also around the boardwalk. We might even do a little construction work to repair some busted fence posts.

And, in our time-honored tradition, we’ll wrap up with a celebratory barbecue.
Here’s the details:

Saturday Jun 3, 9am – noon.
Meet up in Tideman Johnson Park at the boardwalk.

BBQ immediately following. Please let me know if you’re planning to attend, and if you have any dietary needs that aren’t met by Ottos sausages and side salads.

Thanks everyone!

Friends of Tideman Johnson

Upcoming Board Election: Secretary, Asst. Land Use, and Southeast Uplift Rep. Needed

The Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association is seeking volunteers for secretary, assistant land use representative, and Southeast Uplift representative for the upcoming neighborhood association board elections on Monday, May 22.

Both secretary and Southeast Uplift representative announced in March that they are not renewing their terms at the board election.

Southeast Uplift representative Marianne Colgrove has served the position for 12 years. She also participated in spearheading the Friends of Tideman Johnson Park work parties, which she says she will continue to do.

Bryan Dorr has served as secretary and webmaster for 9 years. He also served on the Johnson Creek Secure Residential Treatment Facility (SRTF) good neighbor subcommittee for eight years, which he is also stepping down from. He plans to continue to volunteer webmaster work for the neighborhood.

The assistant land-use, formerly held by Mark Taylor, was vacated a few months ago when he was nominated as the neighborhood’s Public Safety Advisory Committee representative.

The requirements to serve are you must be at voting age or older and is a member of the Ardenwald-Johnson Creek Neighborhood Association. A member is a resident, property or business owner, a designated representative of a business or non-profit group within the Portland or Milwaukie side of the neighborhood boundary.

If you are interested in serving any these positions, please attend the regular meeting on Monday, May 22, 2017, 6:30 p.m. at Milwaukie Café & Bottle Shop, 9401 SE 32nd Ave.

Balfour Park Fundraiser Plant Sale May 20

Please come support your newest neighborhood park at the Ardenwald/Johnson Creek Neighborhood Plant Sale on Saturday, May 20th from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. at 3012 SE Balfour Street.

The plant sale is a fundraiser for the new, but undeveloped neighborhood park on Balfour Street. To date, we have raised over $8,000 towards the development of the park, and a master plan has been completed and approved, but a lot more money needs to be raised!

Plants for the sale have been donated by your neighbors, and there are many native plants, grasses, trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, herbs, and veggie starts that are waiting to go home with you.

Please contact Lisa at 503-754-1655 if you have any questions.

Note: Please bring cash or check as we won’t have a debit/credit card reader on site.
