“Twenty years ago I looked around and I saw a lot of promise, a lot of beautiful buildings that were evolving,” she said recently. She remembers places like the Palace Gallery at 12th and Glisan, where bands practiced and there were shuffleboard tables and pool tables on the loading dock.

If you are a recycling advocate and would like to see Pearl residences and individuals improve in this noble quest, contact Julie Donaldson. She is starting up a small group to canvas the Pearl to see how each building recycles and educates its residents.

Also desired are people who are willing to take the lead as the official recycling contact person for their residence.
The Feldmans sponsor a pet station on Irving, between 10th and 11th, in honor of their beloved family pet, Guinevere.

Thank you Feldman Family for sharing the love with all Pearl pooches, and helping keep our neighborhood clean!

If you would like to become a neighborhood pet station sponsor, please contact Jan Valentine for more information.

After School Program

asap.jpgZimmerman Community Center is offering licensed, after-school childcare for children, ages 4-7, beginning February 4, 2013.


The After-School Activities Program (A.S.A.P.) is an engaging, class adventure, and will provide working parents and parents in school or job training to improve their family's situation. A distinctive quality of A.S.A.P. is Zimmerman Community Center's emphasis on matching enrichment resources in the community -- including theatre, arts, engineering and dance programs -- with the families we serve. Contact Melissa Starrett with any questions.


A.S.A.P. is highly affordable, and the strategic thinking behind the program is built on extensive and ongoing public support. Businesses and individuals can respond to expressed needs, including underwriting of programs and scholarship assistance, to make high quality after-school care available to all children. Please contact Kris Moore for more information.


Zimmerman Community Center is a nonprofit organization with 501c3 determination by the IRS, and contributions are tax-deductible per federal ruling.


Pedal Garden Dedicated

A large crowd gathered inside Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland today to remember former student Tracey Sparling and to dedicate Pedal Garden — a work of functional art that doubles as the school's main bike parking area.

Trivia Night
