June Executive Director Update

16 Jun

The Parkrose Business Community is coming together and growing stronger!  Many businesses have expressed a desire to be more involved in the community and the PBA is helping to make that happen.  We have been active in helping Historic Parkrose launch the first annual Taste of Parkrose Street Fair, June 14th, and look forward to the Summer Nights Street Fairs on the second Thursday of July, August and September at 106th Ave and NE Sandy Blvd.


The PBA is launching a “Shop Parkrose to Score” event the first week in August.  In conjunction with the MLS All Star Game coming to Portland, the shopping event will offer anyone spending $10 in, or a 5-minute consultation with, a participating PBA business will enter a raffle to win Portland Timbers tickets, two nights at the Holiday Inn Portland Airport, $100 Gift Cards and more.  Parkrose businesses will also be hosting a soccer event for kids at Parkrose High School August 9th.


The business association also has three new members!  We welcome Barb Faith of Arcpoint Labs, Ken Han, Senior Mortgage Consultant at Cascade Residential Mortgage and Ron Glanville of the Parkrose Farmers’ Market.  Make sure to pick up a “Shop Parkrose” shopping bag next time you are at the Farmers’ Market.


And finally, congratulations to Brown’s Parkrose Tire Factory on their new sign! You can pick up copies of the newsletter every month in their lobby.
