Beaverton Resource Guide

Beaverton Resource Guide As a community newspaper for Beaverton, OR, browsing the pages is like hearing from your neighbors!


READER COMMENT: I picked up the paper inside the main Beaverton library. My favorite story was actually three stories, all related to mental or physical health. They were “Stress and the scale,” “Why you may not get enough Vitamin D,” and “Slow down to speed up.” I was also very touched by “Another baby arrives at the Oregon Zoo.” I always enjoy the animal stories, and hope every animal waiting to be adopted gets a loving home.

As usual, I enjoyed reading the articles in the paper this month. Although I am not necessarily interested in every topic in the paper, the fact they are all fairly short makes me at least skim through almost all of them. I am often pleasantly surprised afterwards at how interesting and informative they actually were, and how I am now more interested in those topics!

LIBRARY NEWS: New Makerspace Now Open at Beaverton City Library Main: A space for making and creating is now open at Beaverton City Library. The new makerspace, referred to as DAM, is located at the main library (12375 SW 5th St) on the second floor, east of the computers. DAM, which stands for Design And Make, is a space for community members of all ages to come to learn, practice skills, collaborate, prototype, and problem-solve where anyone can be a maker and develop a passion for creating.
There is no cost to use materials or equipment in the makerspace and a library card is not required.
For additional information regarding Beaverton City Library, visit or call 503-644-2197.


READER COMMENT: Favorite article: On page 20 about Fire Camp for girls [by Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue]. One of our favorite TV programs is Chicago Fire. Part of that program has to do with training girls firefighting to encourage them to become firefighters; it's called "Girls on Fire." So, I related the article to that and like that it's a similar thing.

I also liked that some of the ads were posted on "cork" bulletin boards.


CITY NEWS: City Park Fountain Grand Reopening is May 7! This year, we recognize the start of the fountain season with special fanfare to mark the grand reopening after completion of the fountain renovation and sharing this major milestone with community partners who helped make the renovation project a reality.
“We are so excited for the fountain to finally be open again,” said Mayor Beaty. “This has been a long time in the making and I am so stoked to welcome the community back!”
The festivities will kick-off at 4 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
After, enjoy family friendly activities, performances and art. Food from Whabii, Lupita’s Ochoa’s Tacos, and ice cream from Ome Calli will be available for purchase.

READER COMMENT: We got the paper at the McDonalds on Beaverton Hillsdale. Favorite stories included the piece, for me, on the Mayors update and where to find the State of The City address, the information on the Bubble Tea event, how fun. Unfortunately we are booked that day. I always love the Directory to see what I am missing out on. I wish I had seen the piece on April is Stress Awareness month as would have loved to do the loop walk. Incentizes me pick up the paper earlier in the month!! I will however stop into the Chamber and pick up a walking map!

I saved the article on Is Your Back Killing You as seems always someone I know with back issues. Same for The Importance of Dental care- I’m often reminding my adult kids about this 
I enjoy all the articles on Health and Wellness as being 72, I want to be the best I can be ! Enjoyed the tips for a Heart Healthy Life Style also and the exercise to strengthen senior brains.

Grandboys loved the story on the Bontebok survival at the Zoo.
I had my freshman grandson read the article on the Soul Box Project. We are all excited about the Beaverton Library City Park grand opening. Thanks for the information. I would not have known without your paper! And finally as soon as the rain stops we plan to check out some of the Wildflower Tours!

So many good articles and information this month. Thank you!


READER COMMENT: Dear editor, I picked up the paper at Fred Meyer on Walker road. I like the article about March mulching, hidden environmental cost to electric vehicles, and reading about all the local restaurants. I also like seeing the city park fountain grand opening advertisement. I like seeing all the things we can do in Beaverton. I like coupons and kid related things. Thanks!


My favorite story was "When in Doubt...Go to the Library!" I always enjoy seeing what classes or options are offered across Washington County. My suggestion on what I'd like see would be the first week of the next month's events listed along with the current month's selections. I often don't get the BRG until at least the first week or so into the new month and have missed out on events I would have liked to partake in due to the fact that they're only listed in that month's issue. If I'd been aware of them from the last month's article, I perhaps would have been able to attend/participate.

Happy April wishes, BRG, and thanks for all you do!


SHRED EVENT: Raleigh Hills Annual SHRED EVENT - Our Largest Community Service Project, is SATURDAY, APRIL 23 at 9am to noon at AAA parking lot on Apple Way. We'll have a shred truck, electronics and printer cartridge recycling, and household items and food for donation.

READER COMMENT: We picked up the paper at Dairy Queen on Farmington. Favorite article was one about the library! Thanks, Keri


READER COMMENT: We found the paper at omega gymnastics in the bleachers. We liked the toms pancake house and Mayma’s kumon journey. We liked that the words were not listed, it was really challenging! It was our first time! Great fun!
Thank you!


READER COMMENT: Pick up this paper at Impact Beaverton offices.

READER COMMENT: I was with the grandkids and we found the paper at the library. Their favorite article was again the Zoo story. They love the zoo and go there often so learning more about the programs and animals is fun for them. I like just the general over view, topics by so many professionals including the “ask a cop”. I even enjoy all the ads as helps me to learn new places, businesses etc.

Being 72 I enjoy all the articles on health and wellness, nutrition, estate planning, listing some local re-tirement homes. I also enjoy the Saturday Market highlights. Your paper is such a nice overview of our area, I can’t think of anything to add. Each month I find my-self saying, well that was good, interesting, fun to read, etc. Nice job!! ~Cindy


ANIMAL SHELTER UPDATE: A visible reminder of a much more somber time in animal welfare will soon be gone. The incinerator at Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter that was once used to cremate euthanized animals will be removed on Monday, March 14. The incinerator was decommissioned in 2019 after years of decreased use. “Healthy, adoptable animals haven’t been euthanized at Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter since 2010,” Washington County Animal Services Manager Randy Covey explained. “Fifteen years ago, few people thought it would be possible to operate a public animal shelter without an onsite incinerator. Monday will be a proud day for us in Washington County,” said Covey.

READER COMMENT: I picked up the Beaverton Resource Guide last evening at a restaurant named “Tapatio” in the plaza at Farmington and 185th in Aloha. The story I really enjoyed was titled Beaverton Police Dept’s Officer of the Year, about officer Michel Wilson and her contributions to our community [by Beaverton Police Department] . Thank you for your free publication. I really enjoy your articles about activities in the community and would enjoy more puzzles. Sincerely, Barbara L.


Hello BRG, I picked up the Beaverton Resource Guide for March 2022 issue at the Red box on SW Watson avenue. and SW 1st. St. At the corner. MY FAVORITE pages are 18-19. I enjoyed the information regarding " Should I buy a used or a new car?" [by Lawrence Ferguson III]. The advice is very helpful. Now is not the time to buy!
I also appreciate the section about " don't wait to plan your estate" [by Kimberly Shute]. Very informative advice! 👍
I learned about Chiropractic and the chiropractor's work from the article about True Potential Chiropractic. I like the feature business on the cover in the Beaverton Resource Guide. The added information about the benefits of having chiropractic care on top of page 14 emphasis the importance of being aligned. Thank you for such a great and wonderful information in the resource guide.

READER COMMENT: Hello, I got the February paper at Fred Meyer on Walker Road south cart entrance and enjoyed the story My Public Safety... Heart attack [by Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue] .
For businesses in the directory, I suppose the merchants prefer to have an interested customer go to extra effort to phone or go online to find the location of their business rather than have/find it fully listed in the BRG Directory.☹️ Regards, Bob

READER COMMENT: I Got the paper at Safeway on Cornell Road and I liked the story about Black History Month. I would like to see more articles for Senior Citizens. In particular, I liked the stories from Mature Adults on the Move.


READER COMMENT: This month, I picked up a copy of the Beaverton Resource Guide at the Elsie Stuhr center on SW Hall Blvd. I recommend to continue featuring a business in the BRG to introduce the business's nature to the community in order to generate more interest in patronizing it. I liked the introduction of "Meet Sun Connections Travel & Cruises, LLC". They also got to advertise the business on the front page with the intriguing photo of beautiful beach and palm trees 🌴. Continue to feature a local business every month. It's good marketing and good information to the local people in Beaverton.

We have two classrooms, for students ages 2-5. Low cost $135-$350 per month!
We have a lot of openings in the 2's class for next fall, there are a lot of returning students so space in the older class is going quick.
Ashcreek Playschool is a co-op preschool located off Murray and Weir in Beaverton. Being a co-op, parent participation is part of our program. For many families, due to work and other commitments, regular volunteering in class may not be an option, so we are now offering the option to either buy out of some volunteering shifts. This means that some families can sign up for additional shifts for a discount! If either of these options interests you please inquire at our open house.

Rhonda Kay Leonard with United Homecare mentioned and quoted me in a piece in the Beaverton Resource Guide.

Family caregivers often struggle with getting help, support and resources for their loved ones, particularly those living with dementia and other chronic illnesses.

Thanks, Rhonda Kay! 💜

I wrote this for the Beaverton Resource Guide:

Seven years ago, during the summer of 2012, we lost our son, Zach, at the age of 25.

For Christmas that year, my wife and I managed to get a Christmas tree. We placed upon it clear tear-shaped ornaments and blue lights. It was a Blue Christmas, a la, Elvis: “I’ll have a blue Christmas without you.” Nonetheless, it was Christmas.

The blue and the tears were good for our souls. I know that other celebrations besides Christmas are celebrated during the holiday season, but perhaps all of our celebrations have a similar orientation around this time of Winter Solstice. At the darkest point, the sun begins its rise.

There is much to be festive about at this time of year: Shopping, parties, gathering with families, glowing candles, children in their pajamas, concerts and light shows and plenty of Santa hats. I love all of it.

Yet, Christmas (and the holiday season as a whole) is most complete when it includes some blue. The light that shines in the darkness is shining for the darkness of grief, loss, and struggle that we all experience. It is the price of being born.

Our tree won’t consist entirely of tear-shaped ornaments and blue lights this year, but there will be a couple of them. They will remind us of Zach and of loss and of the Light of a new dawn that pierces the darkness.

Wherever life finds you this season, may the Light meet you where you need to be met even if it shines through the color blue.
