May 5, 2020: Looking for masks? Here are some Charbonneau contacts you can call. Their phone numbers can be found in the Charbonneau Directory:
Joan Vedder - Selling masks for $10. Joan is an excellent seamstress and I understand she makes masks for men and women (the masks for women may have lace to make them pretty)
Maxine Lehl - Selling masks locally for $5. St. Frances Church matches the cost and all proceeds are donated to the food bank.
Another resident told me some Charbonneau crafters are selling masks on the social media site, Next Door.
Hope to see you all soon - wearing masks of course!

Temporary Access for Walking on the Red Course Only
To all Charbonneau residents-
Due to the recent Covid-19 restrictions causing the closure of the clubhouse and the fitness center, the Charbonneau Golf Club, Inc. Board of Directors, in cooperation with CCC HOA, is offering a limited time option.
While the Green and Yellow courses are operating at nearly full capacity, the Red course is closed for golf. The Red course ONLY may be temporarily used for walking under these conditions. Please check with the Pro Shop if you have questions.
• Walking ONLY...and ONLY on the Cart Paths on the RED Course. Handicap mobility support is allowed
• Walk either direction
• Dogs on leashes and pick up after as needed
• Enter anywhere on Red, but do not walk across Green or Yellow to get to Red
• Yield to maintenance equipment and/or workers
• Walkers assume ALL liability (although the course will be closed to golfers)...could be random balls from others fairways
• No need to register...just enjoy
This is an experimental program to determine if we can do this in a safe and cooperative way. If there are difficulties with compliance to these simple rules, this privilege may not be able to be extended again.
Remember- walking is dangerous and not allowed on the yellow and green courses at any time.

Exercising our spirits and minds
The last months of 2020 were even more challenging than last spring as we faced two holidays in rapid succession that were significantly impacted by the pandemic. Our spirits were lightened as we saw the many ways we all found to connect and celebrate.
Christmas would not be complete without dreams of sugar cookies. Out board delivered to members a little Christmas Cookie surprise just prior to our December meeting for members to enjoy. Baked by our local bakery, Lux Sucre, they were delicious!
Our December event was a special holiday performance by Basso a Deux, just to get us in the right frame of mind. Andrea Vorvick (vocal) and husband Paul (upright bass) started the duo with jazz and blues standards but as they continued to develop their unique, stripped -down style, they moved away from traditional jazz and started arranging and performing swing versions of classic rock tunes. One voice accompanied only by upright bass, bringing listeners fresh songs. We enjoyed festive holiday tunes including holiday classics, carols, and some very merry originals.
CWA continues to connect its members in a weekly walking group. Members can show up at 1pm every Monday in the parking lot in front of the Charbonneau Salon and Curry’s Restaurant (rain or shine!). We all bring our masks and use them when the layout of the landscape pushes us too closely together. With the Red golf course closed to golfing for the winter, we have added that walking loop to our strolls.
On Monday January 11th CWA featured Charlotte Lehan who has titled her presentation as "Myths and Milestones in Wilsonville and Charbonneau History; Chapter 1". Charlotte Lehan is a Wilsonville City Councilor, former County Commissioner, former three-term mayor, and a fourth generation Wilsonville resident. She has degrees in Human Development and completed graduate studies in Urban Geography. Local history has always been an interest for her, and she has truly delved into her subject. She began her presentation by pointing out the importance of examining historical information: who is telling the story? Whose story is left out (that translated into Native Americans, women, and Chinese settlers as well). We learned about how Ice Age flooding scoured out the paths that then became the portals for trails, landing points for ferries, and ultimately our local communities connected by freeways and bridges. Stay tuned for “Chapter 2” by Charlotte Lehan at a future CWA even where we will learn more about the communities and the pioneers.
This month our speaker for the February 8th event will be Judy Alleruzzo from Al's Garden & Home. Judy is the Perennial and Houseplant Buyer for Al's and is also the co-host of the Garden Time TV show. Judy has an Ornamental Horticulture degree as well as a wealth of experience. She will give our Charbonneau gardeners valuable information on early spring bloomers, container gardens, and how to get started this Spring.
