Happy New Year…  Let’s Potluck again and share our Christmas stories and laughter!

Bring a dish to share for dinner starting at 6pm

Stay for fun and lots of laughs at 7pm…White Elephant Gift Exchange!

Bring that gift you can’t use or don’t like, or something you have around your house that you were going to goodwill or throw out (the funnier the better)…wrap it up and come exchange it for someone else’s discard.  Let’s get the laughter going for the new year!!

If you would like to support the local homeless, please bring new socks and Elaine will be sure they get to a shelter where folks can get a clean pair.

When: September 29, 2017 5:30 – 8:00 PM

Where: PKW Clubhouse 10353 SW Taylor Street

Who: You, your invited guests and neighbors

Why: Meet your neighbors and enjoy a Friday evening together

Dear Neighbors,

Please join us for a fun fall social hour.  The clubhouse will be open for a Friday night happy hour.  We are asking neighbors to donate unwanted items to the Assistance League.  It’s a great time to clear your unneeded items and donate to a great cause.  Please bring your unwanted men’s and women’s clothing, jewelry and accessories, linens, dishes, and household items (no electronics).  Everything should be in good condition.

Come to the clubhouse with your donations and get your tax deductible receipt. We’ll have a neighborly social gathering and make it a party.  You’re encouraged to bring a beverage, snacks or hors d’oeuvre to share.

If you have items to donate but cannot attend, we can arrange another drop off time and location.  If you don’t have items to bring, come anyway for this community social event. The event is open to all PKW Residents and Guests.

For more information, contact Jane Ankney at

Assistance League is a 97 years old national women’s philanthropic organization.

The greater Portland chapter has a thrift & consignment store on 117th (just off Canyon) in Beaverton. The proceeds from the Consignment & Thrift stores fund our programs. The stores are run completely by member volunteers. The major program is Operation School Bell. This program provides NEW clothing for 1,800 K-5th grade students in the Beaverton & Hillsboro school districts. There are additional programs that provide new clothing for middle school & high school students in Beaverton & Hillsboro. Assistance League also donates new clothes to The Clothes Closet that benefits Portland high schools.

Chemicals used in Community

There has been some concerns raised recently regarding the use of chemicals in our community.  The HOA employs various vendors who apply herbicides, insecticides, moss treatments, etc.

For each chemical used, a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is posted on TMG’s website.  I have also posted them on this site under the landscaping tab.

If you have any questions regarding the materials or methods used by any of our vendors, please contact TMG or send a message to this site and I will pass it along.




The Annual Homeowners’ Meeting will be held on August 14th at 630pm at our clubhouse, 10353 SW Taylor Street.   All PKW owners are encouraged to attend.

Here is the agenda:

2017 Annual meeting agenda

As of August 2nd, 2017, two homeowners have expressed interest in these positions.

Peterkort Woods “Wednesday’s at the Pool”


Every Wednesday beginning on June 14, thru August 30, 2017, all PKW HOA neighbors are invited for “Wednesday’s at the Pool.”  Several neighbors have agreed to act as informal hosts from 6-8pm.
This is a time to meet neighbors and just have a lot of fun. The Bar-b-que’s will be “hot”. Please bring your own food to bar-b-que, drinks, utensils, etc. as that will not be provided.
If it is inclement weather, this event will be cancelled without notice.
Hope to see you there.

If you have a question or comment, please fill out the contact form below.

Mailbox on SW Morrison

One of the mailboxes on upper SW Morrison was damaged recently and is being replaced.  An inquiry to TMG produced the following response.

“It appears that someone hit it and reported it to the post office. The post office will be replacing the box…It may take a few days, even a few weeks depending on what they need to arrange on their end…”

If this is your mailbox and you have questions about mail delivery, contact the West Slope Post Office at (503)203-8705.


Update April 25, 2017: We had our annual cleanup day this past Saturday.  28 PKW residents helped with: garbage pickup, mailbox cleaning, cleaning walls inside the clubhouse, breaking up pallets and power washing (behind clubhouse), and some gardening.

Original post: More than 20 PKW residents participated in last year’s event.  The group broke up into four groups: wetlands cleanup, mailbox cleanup, picnic table assembly, and plantings.

Help cleanup and beautify the areas surrounding our wonderful community.

We’ll break into teams and tackle several different areas in the community.
We’ll meet at the Clubhouse at 10am for assignments and work together till noon. Lunch will be provided at the Clubhouse.
We will have basic supplies on hand such as garbage bags but please bring your own gloves if desired.

If you have a t-shirt from a past clean-up day, wear it.  If you need a t-shirt, fill out a contact form ASAP and include your size.

Please RSVP by April 5th so we can get a count for lunch.

Invitation to volunteer

My name is Marilyn Gray and I live here in Peterkort Woods.  I am involved in the West TV Elementary School’s volunteer program.  I would like to invite and encourage anyone in our neighborhood who might like to explore the many and varying volunteer opportunities at the school to contact me.  If I have some interest, I will invite a seasoned volunteer from the school to an informal informational meeting to share the possibilities.  Even if you have ½ an hour a week to donate, there is no better way to invest in the future than by mentoring a child or supporting a child’s teacher!

Thank you

Marilyn Gray
