Bales BarbecueBales fundraising barbecue continues

Bales Marketplace fundraising barbecues continue this month, with two of the beneficiary organizations on hand to tell the public about their organizations. Held every Saturday from 11-3, the program was started by Bales department managers who staff the grill. All proceeds are donated to the target charities. Make a stop at the grill part of your Saturday routine and help good causes by enjoying great burgers, dogs and sometimes other surprises.

The Virginia Garcia Clinic, a private nonprofit health care organization, annually provides over 25,000 medical visits to the medically needy through its Washington, and Yamhill county locations. Founded in 1975 primarily to assist migrant farmworkers with low-cost and culturally appropriate medical care, the centers have expanded to provide care to all those in need in our area. Representatives will be on hand to tell people about the program on August 9, from 11 am to 3 pm.

On August 30, Monika’s House, a shelter for battered women and their children, will tell the public about their work. Operated by the Domestic Violence Resource Center, Washington County’s sole provider of services specifically to victims and survivors of domestic violence, the house is just one of many services offered by this important non-profit organization.

Another beneficiary of the barbecue, the Bonnie L. Hayes Animal Shelter, will be visiting sometime in September.

Founders’ Day Cruise-In

Bales parking lot will be hopping on Saturday, August 23 from 3-6 pm with an assortment of amazing cars from the Sunset Vintage Auto Club, plus a DJ spinning classic tunes, raffles for prizes, snow cones and barbecue, and an outdoor produce tent.

Cedar Mill Farmers’ Market celebrates tenth birthday!

Was it just ten years ago that the first little Farmers’ Market appeared in the library parking lot? It seems like it’s been around for longer than that, but Leilani Esping and her crew of volunteers pulled together the first market in 1999.

The Cedar Mill Farmers Market (CMFM) will celebrate on August 16 with birthday cake, prize drawings, and more of the great music that they’re known for—Greg Clarke. As always, kids activities will include face painting and balloons, and the regular market vendors will be there with their terrific local food and crafts.

If you’ve never ventured to the Market, be sure to come out and help them celebrate. And if you’re a regular, this will be a day to remember!

Papa Murphy’s growing fast

Papa Murphy’s Take ‘N Bake Pizza was the nation’s 13th fastest-growing restaurant chain for both sales and sales per unit, according to a compilation by Nation’s Restaurant News magazine. The Vancouver, Washington-based chain of bake-at-home pizza restaurants rose 23 spots in overall sales after its earnings increased 12.7 percent for the year ended Dec. 31, 2007.

In a separate ranking, Papa Murphy’s rose 35 places in the sales-per-unit rankings by improving per-unit sales by nearly 5.3 percent, also for the 2007 fiscal year. Papa Murphy’s is the only Portland-area chain included on the list.

The August group show will feature Debbie Teeter, who teaches art at Beaverton High School.  Debbie enjoys all forms of drawing and painting, and occasionally works in sculpture.  While she has pursued a variety of subject matter, she has always enjoyed working with plants.  Georgia O’Keeffe once said that she hated flowers and painted them because they were cheaper than models and didn’t move.  Maybe that’s part of the attraction, but Debbie finds the forms and colors seductive, and tries to capture that quality in her paintings.

The all media show runs from August 5 through September 6. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, and Sunday 12 pm to 4 pm. It’s located just east of the Cedar Mill Community Library.

Among the class offerings this month is Art Essentials for Teachers, a three-day workshop August 12-14. Instructor Jill Jeffers Goodell promises to give teachers a solid foundation in art and several ideas and concepts to use this fall with their students.

Sunset Medical adds digital X-ray

Sunset Medical Practice Group is implementing a new Digital X-ray Service. It combines technology with great service.

New technology has produced a Digital X-ray machine that enhances productivity, and complements the full service lab, cutting x-ray delivery time in half, so the patient doesn’t have to wait so long for results.

The machine is a top-of-the-art product, so much easier to use, and no awkward positioning like before. The x-ray machine is remarkably different; it turns a 360o, full circle, and can angle the patient in any direction to facilitate better positioning for x-raying.

The new system allows the physician to read the results faster, which also means more speedy results for the patients, and a quick in-and-out process, creating less time waiting in the x-ray area.
