How are the roads? [Dec. 21st, 2008|09:15 pm]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

Hey, Hillsboro-folks!  Greetings from Bethany!  Did anyone get out today?  I'm looking for a road report for Evergreen/Cornell between 185th and the airport -- anyone able to update me?  Thanks!

We didn't even try to leave home today, but we need to get out tomorrow, and we're trying to figure out whether to head West to Hillsboro, or East to Cedar Mill and Portland. 

Thanks!  And stay warm!

Whoo! A Hillsboro community! Greetings, inhabitants of the Tualatin Valley!

I lived in good ol' 97123 for my first 13 years on earth. (I moved around a lot after that, and now, at age 29, I'm in Dallas, Texas. No Douglas Fir trees, a summer day over 100° is "normal", it doesn't rain at all in winter, and, during the festive season, they ship Christmas trees down here in frozen boxes from Washington. Nobody here knows what a "Tuality" is; I doubt they could even pronounce it. Sad thing, really.)

The Debate Begins: Burgerville chocolate milkshakes have a banana aftertaste. True, or very true? (Surely I'm not the only one that notices it...?)

Need moving help! [Jul. 25th, 2007|01:18 pm]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

Me and my fiance are moving to Beaverton tomorrow and we need help unloading our UHaul. We can unload most of it ourselves but we have a few fairly heavy things that I cannot help him move - an electric piano, a futon frame, a couple couches and a wood armoire.

Anyway, would anyone be willing to come out for about an hour and help us move stuff into our apartment? We are thinking around 5-6pm. We really just need one kinda big/strong guy for about an hour. The apartments we are staying at are called Willow Grove and they are about two blocks from a Max stop though I am new to the area and I'm not really sure which stop it is!

We will pay you $50. :)

Too old to be a rock star? [Jul. 16th, 2007|07:28 pm]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon
[Current Music |Rock (Creedence, Beatles, etc)]

Looking to put the band back together, but everybody's gone away.  Haven't played in a band for many years.  Got the perfect name for the band now, though:  GEEZER.  Serious, I'd like to put a band together, maybe do some of that online recording type stuff (don't know much about it at this point, but I'm going to learn).  I'm local, and I play rhythm guitar (so-so), so if you play lead guitar, bass, or drums, or keyboards, and you're in the over 50 crowd and interested in just having some fun & making some noise (location to be determined), leave me a note.  No drugs or alcohol, please.

New residents... [Jul. 10th, 2007|06:13 am]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

My fiance and I are moving to the Portland area in about two weeks from Washington State. As a result, I am hoping for some information from you kind people. We are looking for a reasonably-priced 2 bedroom apartment in Hillsboro/Beaverton/Aloha as close to the Max Station as possible. Anyone know of some good places? What about bad places we should stay away from?

I would look on Craigslist but I don't know how to tell if something is close to the Max station. Any tips?

Also, we are really apprehensive about the whole mass transit situation in general. For example, when the Portland transit site lists a route number how do we know if its a bus, a streetcar or the max?

Thanks so much in advance!

Glencoe [Jun. 9th, 2007|09:56 pm]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

Hey guys,

I spent most of my childhood in Hillsboro and attended Mckinney --> Evergreen --> Glencoe.

I've actually created a community for Glencoe that never quite took off. Now that I've come across this community, I figured I'd give it another plug.

Join if you want! glencoehs

REVIVIAL!! [Apr. 22nd, 2007|11:25 am]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

[Current Location |Hillsboro, Like, DUH.]

Okay, so going though my old account, skitosimsfreak, I notice this community. I had totally forgotten about it, but here we go, I'm revamping it. I've added all of the available Hillsboro Public Schools to the schools list, to make us easier to find. I updated the interests slightly, and I fixed some minor spelling errors on the profile. Let's get this show on the road, again!

Kids get free backpacks [Sep. 12th, 2006|12:03 pm]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

The students at Cornelius Elementary & Peter Boscow Elementary schools received backpacks full of supplies from the Hillsboro Costco. The packs were part of Costco's Fresh Start Backpack program. It provides free backpacks and supplies to elementary schools that have a 50% or higher rate of poverty.

Found this article in tuesday September 12th's Courier, printed by the Hillsboro Argus.

Hillsboro Dog Park Open House [Aug. 16th, 2006|02:01 pm]
The Happenings of Hillsboro, Oregon

Hillsboro dog owners and enthusiasts!

Good news! We have been given the official authorization to move ahead
with developing Hillsboro’s first dog park. We know that dogs and their
owners have been anxiously awaiting this, and we are excited as well.
The future dog park site is approximately 3.75 acres, just north of
Evergreen Parkway off of 229th Avenue.

We would like to invite dog owners and other interested people to help
us in the planning and design of the dog park.

Public Open House:
Wednesday, August 23rd from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
Hillsboro Parks and Recreation Administration Office
4400 NW 229th Avenue (just north of Evergreen Parkway)

The future dog park is located across the street from the Parks and
Recreation office, so this will be a good opportunity to check out the
site as well.

We plan on park construction and opening in the summer of 2007.
Questions or comments? Please call Laurie DeVos, Project Manager, at
503.615.6508 or e-mail lauried@ci.hillsboro.or.us.
