General meeting & shave ice social

Join the Roseway Neighborhood Association for its summer general meeting, Tuesday, July 8, in the 72nd Avenue park blocks between NE Beech and Failing.

Meet your neighbors, bring your concerns, hear what guest speakers have to say and get ready for a couple of special treats — free shave ice (served by Ono) and music by Josh’s Junction (featuring bluegrass and folk musicians from Roseway and other parts of Portland).

The meeting is from 7-8 p.m.; the music will get going around 6:30. You may want to bring a chair or blanket.

See you there!

Roseway Garden Walk this Saturday – June 28th

Roseway Neighborhood Association is initiating a new event to foster closer connections between neighbors, to encourage an exchange of ideas about gardens, to illustrate the potential for beautification, and to celebrate our community.

Join us this Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 11:00 till 3:00 through several Roseway residents that will open their gardens for us to view. Many of us have walked by these gardens and appreciated the plantings and landscaping from the street. Now we have an opportunity to see full gardens and perhaps discuss plants and ideas with the proud caretaker. Most gardens in our neighborhood are small and some gardeners have consequently made careful plant and hardscape selections while others have taken a more natural and seemingly random approach to their gardens. Garden style is a matter of individual preference and character, but every garden is a unique adventure. Perhaps seeing what others have created will inspire us with ideas for our own gardens. Perhaps the walk might even motivate us to actually start those projects we’ve been postponing till a “better time”. But it will most certainly be a great opportunity to connect with and enjoy the neighborhood.

With this Google map, you can utilize your smartphones’ GPS to access turn-by-turn directions to each home. A small number of printed addresses will be available at Fairley’s and Safeway and there will also be signs posted at each open garden.
