Superbowl Sunday FEB 3 – Game time is 3:30pm

Come and watch the game on the big screens at the clubhouse with your neighbors.  There will be chicken wings, pizza, chips/salsa, popcorn and non alcoholic beverages.  Please bring any additional snacks you would like to share and BYOB.  There will also be a “Football Pool”…  buy a square or more for $1 each when you arrive before the game starts!  The clubhouse doors will open at 2pm.

Game night interest??

A new neighbor in the neighborhood would love to teach the game Mah Jongg (American version) and/or have a scrabble night at the clubhouse.  Please email or text Marilyn Gray 503-936-4608 or PKWsocial@gmail.com if you have an interest in learning Mah Jongg or in attending a game night periodically.  We can only do this if we have a committed group who would like to learn and/or play.

Spring Neighborhood Cleanup – late April?

We would like to get a large group of folks out to do a neighborhood cleanup.  We would be doing general cleanup activities to be specifically determined.  We would work for a couple hours in the morning then all meet up at the clubhouse for lunch after.  Please text or email Marilyn Gray 503-936-4608 or PKWsocial @gmail.com if you would like to participate in beautifying our neighborhood.  We even have matching t-shirts to wear while we are doing this and we had a lot of fun doing it the last couple of years.

PKW SOCIAL: September 29th

What: Fall PKW Social Gathering

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 mjankney@comcast.net

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.

To learn more about the Assistance League, see Assistance League

 

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

Update:COMMUNITY CLEANUP DAY April 30th, 2016

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

Wetlands 

A small group of volunteers  removed trash in the wetlands area to our north.  (They were careful not to disturb any wildlife.)

Mailboxes

Tape residue, algae, dirt, and other substances were removed from the community mailboxes.

Tables

There are now two new tables at the pool and one each at the two urban parks and the great lawn gazebo.

Planting 

In cooperation with CleanWater Services, the Tualatin River Watershed Council donated 100 trees, shrubs, and plants to our HOA to be planted in the areas adjacent to the wetlands.  Our crew planted 70 of these along Johnson Creek in the Merrit Woods Natural Area.

Lunch

Lunch was served afterwards at the Clubhouse.

A special thanks to Sunrise Bagels (10902 SW Barnes Rd) for providing the sandwiches!

Original post: Help cleanup and beautify the areas surrounding our wonderful community.

We’ll break into teams and tackle several different areas such as:

Prepare ground and Plant NW Natives in selected areas of the community.

Clean Mailboxes, and TBD odd jobs within Peterkort.

Wetlands and surrounding neighborhood  trash collection.
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.
Lunch and T-shirts will be provided! To help defray the costs, please bring $5/person.

Please RSVP by April 11th so we can get a count for lunch, T-shirts, and hats. When signing up, if you have a shirt from last year, let us know! Otherwise, please indicate what size t-shirt to order or if you would prefer a baseball hat.

The deadline for written comments is 400pm on December 2, 2015.

UPDATE 3 FEBRUARY 2018

You may have noticed some work being done along Barnes Road. According to the Cedar Mills News, “… the work being done now is “investigational,” and might include geological reports. They (the land owners) are talking to a developer, who will share their plans when they are ready.”
