Neighborhood Picnic a BIG Success!
About 125 neighbors, fire and police officers, city staff and local business people joined together for the August 8th Campbell NDA Neighborhood Picnic. This year Shawn Brannan, a face painter, brought color and humor to the faces of many children and Siobhan Kennedy, a massage therapist from Healing Path, brought comfort to those with knots in their backs and necks. Joining neighbors were Councilor David Hedges (hot dog cooker), four officers from station 2 of Clackamas County Fire District #1 at 3200 SE Harrison, Police Chief Bob Jordan, City Manager Bill Monahan, City Recorder and HCNDA's staff liaison Pat DuVal, and Councilor Joe Loomis. From the noise levels it sounded like the kids were having fun and neighbors were getting to know each other better on a beautiful August evening. Thanks to Sarah and Darin Smith, David Aschenbrenner, Glen Ropella, Renee White, Tracy and Chris Pease, Lars Campbell and Rebekah Phillips, Sharon Hayes, Darlene Albertson, Ruby Inman and Linda Hedges for helping put together such a fun event. Thanks also to Nick Loomis for provision of the frozen yogurt dessert, and to St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church for provision of some of the supplies. Also, to raffle prize donations from Tempus Dictum, Papa Murphy's, North Clackamas Aquatic Park, Blount International (Oregon Chain Saw), Milwaukie Farmer's Market, The Gardensmith, and the Clackamas County Office of Sustainability which donated a rain barrel for the raffle.
