Great Oregon Shakeout

Please Participate in This Year’s “Great Oregon Shakeout” Emergency Drill

Thursday, October 15, 2020 at Exactly 10:15 a.m.

Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:15 a.m. on 10/15/20—just as they would if hit by a monster earthquake.

As extra incentive, you can win a 3.5 gallon stackable water storage container by taking part. Your neighborhood Emergency Preparedness captains have delivered household instructions, including a HELP/OK sign with a double raffle ticket attached. Fill out your name and phone number, keep the other side of the ticket and on SHAKE OUT DAY place the HELP/OK sign on your garage door with the ticket attached.
                                                            How do YOU participate?
Double check your own emergency supplies of water, food, and other essentials. Then on Thursday, October 15, set your alarm for 10:15AM and when it goes off:




                                                            WHAT TO DO NEXT

1. Check on everyone in your home, are they OK?
2. Protect your head, feet & hands from broken glass & fallen debris. Time to check on where your hard hat, work gloves and sturdy shoes are stored!
3. Make sure you know where your gas meter is and how to turn it off, if necessary.
4. Make sure you know where the main water shut off to your home is located and how to turn it off.
5. Place your HELP/OK sign outside with raffle ticket where it can be seen from the   street.
6. Put your fire extinguisher at the end of your driveway.
7. Then shelter in place.

Your Emergency Preparedness Team will come by to see if you participated in the drill by placing your HELP/OK sign. They will collect your raffle ticket from the sign and enter it in the raffle for the Waterbrick prizes.

Garron Grounds Owner and General Manager Passes Away


Your CHOA Board is sad to inform you that Ken Bartus, owner of Garron Grounds, passed away in his sleep at home on Monday night.  Ken was dedicated to serving our community as he has done for many years.  That dedication was further evidenced by Ken putting into place, through his will and management documents, instructions for the continuation of his business.

CHOA’s property manager, Steve Chinn, and Landscape Chair, Karen Siegel, have met with Garron Staff.  We have been assured that Garron’s general landscape and irrigation maintenance service to our Community will continue and that Garron will have staff available for any emergencies.  We ask that any special requests for landscape and/or irrigation issues be directed to Steve Chinn or Karen Siegel who will work directly with Garron staff.

Thank you

Neighborhood Watch – Volunteers Needed!

Please note that CHOA is considering creating a Neighborhood Watch program.  Several HOAs in Charbonneau already have them.  Since we have volunteers for the Board and the Emergency Preparedness program, we are seeking volunteers to lead a Neighborhood Watch program if there is enough interest in our community.

 If you are interested in leading or volunteering as a member of a Neighborhood Watch Committee, please let us know by the end of August.

 If interested, please contact Barry Hendrix at or 503-754-0322.


New Statewide Rules on Get-togethers and Face Coverings


From OHA (Oregon Health Authority): New statewide rules on get-togethers and face coverings

The governor has announced these two new rules as a result of a frank assessment of COVID-19 in our state:

  • Oregon reported more cases in the past week than we did in the entire month of May.
  • The last time we had fewer than 100 cases in a single day was more than a month ago.

The first rule is a statewide ban on indoor social get-togethers of more than 10 people. This includes gatherings such as dinner parties, birthday parties, potlucks and book clubs taking place indoors. It does not affect restaurants, churches, event venues and other organizations at this time. Businesses and other organizations that have been following the guidance about face coverings, distancing and sanitation have not currently been identified as sources of significant transmission. Effective July 15

The second new rule is that face coverings are mandated in outdoor spaces where distance of 6 feet or more from people outside your household cannot be maintained. This might come up at a crowded trailhead, on sidewalks while awaiting entry to a business or at an outdoor event. Effective July 15

This virus is extremely contagious, and many people don’t show symptoms for days. In that time, you can interact with dozens or, if you’re not careful, hundreds of other people in your social circle and community.
That’s why the three W’s continue to be so important:

  • Wear a face covering.
  • Watch your distance.
  • Wash your hands.

In addition to the new measures announced today, these are other actions we can all take to slow the spread of COVID-19.

  • If you can move activities outside, do so. The disease spreads less easily outdoors, and you can enjoy more of the Oregon summer.
  • If you run a business and can serve customers outside – do it.
  • Avoid groups of more than 10. And if you’re unexpectedly in a group of 10 or more, think hard about whether that’s a good choice, stay outside, keep 6 feet apart, and cover your face.

New Bark Dust Coming Your Way!


Karen Siegel – CHOA Landscape Chair

I am happy to let you know that once again we will be spreading bark dust along the street frontages in CHOA.  Rexius will begin the project the week of July 20.  They will be blowing dark hemlock bark in planting areas along the street fronts.

If you  have questions, please contact me or Steve Chinn.

RV Yard entrance blocked for Sewer Project

The Project Manager for the sewer project provided an update that the RV Yard entrance will not be blocked the rest of this week or next week. If there are short, periodic blocks, vehicles will still be able to pass through.

However, from Monday, July 6th through the end of the day on Tuesday, July 7th, the entrance will be blocked.

We will pass along any information we receive as it pertains to this situation.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

thank you ~

Reminder- Feeding of Wild birds or animals except Hummingbirds is Prohibited in CHOA

As you know, we have seen an increase in the number of wild animals in Charbonneau- there have been recent reports and sightings of  Skunks, Raccoons, Rats and Mice.  Also, the local Squirrel population is getting larger.  They like to chew on the sprinkler heads which can destroy them and then we have to spend CHOA funds to replace the sprinkler heads.

In order to try to stem this trend, we want to help eliminate as much of their food sources as possible.  Therefore, we are asking that each CHOA neighbor refrain from feeding any animals and/or birds anywhere in CHOA or around your home except for Hummingbirds.  This includes inside your courtyard also.

In addition, please feed your pets indoors only and don’t leave them unsupervised outside.

Thanks in advance for your help here to make CHOA a safer neighborhood.
