On Saturday, December 11th, CHOA will have our first Food Truck. We will be sending out the details on the location and Menu next week. So, if you are tired of coming up with meal ideas or do not want to take on the crowded grocery store, stay tuned!
Due to the 2-week freeze, B pool and Spa will close effective November 18th and remain closed for the season. Thank you.
Gutter cleaning will be starting on Monday, November 9th. Depending on the weather, the cleaning will take all of November and December and into early January to complete. The leaves are beautiful this time of year – just not in our gutters! Thank you.
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 email@example.com or 503-754-0322.

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.

What is contact tracing and why does it matter?
Contact tracing means calling people who may have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 to provide guidance and support. It’s a key tool for preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In Oregon, local public health authorities use contact tracing to prevent the spread of many types of diseases, like measles.
OHA has developed a webpage with fact sheets and other downloadable resources about contact tracing that will help you know what to expect if you or someone in your household gets a call, click on this link to access the website:
What happens on a contact tracing call?
With COVID-19 cases increasing in Oregon over the past several weeks, answering the call from a contact tracer is an important way we can work together to help stop the spread of the virus. Contact tracers reach out to anyone who may have been exposed to COVID-19 to provide information and support. If you don’t answer calls from phone numbers you don’t recognize, don’t worry, contact tracers will leave a message asking you to call them back.
If you have been exposed to the virus, you will be asked to quarantine for 14 days after you were near someone with COVID-19, even if you don’t feel sick. This is because you can spread the virus, even if you don’t have symptoms.
When walking, wear BRIGHT clothes, be BRIGHT mentally!
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reminds us “because walking is such a routine part of everyday life, many people do not consider the safety aspects of walking. For instance, most injuries to walkers happen when a vehicle hits them because the driver could not see the walker or the walker and driver were not paying close enough attention.”
See and Be Seen!! It is a good idea when walking, especially at dawn, dusk, and other low-light conditions, (such as our shaded Charbonneau streets) to wear light colors or bright clothing so that you can be easily seen. Fluorescent colors such as blaze orange, hot pink, and day-glow green are ideal in daytime. When walking at night, use a flashlight to make yourself more visible to drivers and to help light your path. It’s also a good idea to wear reflective or retroreflective materials, which give off light when headlights shine on them and can be seen by drivers three times farther than white.
The NHTSA has an excellent website with information geared to senior walkers, click on the link for more important safety tips:
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 ~

LADY BUGS – LADY BUGS
You may be noticing small yellow mesh bags that were recently placed in the Oak, Linden, and some Maple trees in the area. The bags contain Lady Bugs who love to dine on aphids and once they leave the bags, they help to organically control any aphid problems we might have. The Lady Bugs are capable of eating about 50 times their own weight and will stay in the area for 3-4 months.
Please do not remove the bags from the trees – Garron’s crews will do that when we are sure all the Lady Bugs are dispersed.
