Request from CCC President

CCC President, Anne Shevlin, has requested assistance in obtaining signatures for a petition related to tolling on I-5 and I-205. 

She writes:

“As you are aware, the issue of tolling I-5 and I-205 is an issue of high concern to our Charbonneau residents.  A petition, known as IP-4 has been created by a concerned West Linn citizen that, if enough signatures are obtained, would cause the issue of tolling to be put to a vote on the ballot in the November, 2024 general election.  The deadline is June 1, 2024 to obtain enough signatures.  Learn more about the petition here: Vote Before Tolls – IP-4 requires a vote before Oregon tolls.”

Anne is seeking residents in all Charbonneau HOAs “who would be interested in obtaining signatures on the petition.  This would require them to either attend meetings or gatherings where other residents get together in your neighborhoods, and/or go door to door to obtain signatures.”

CCC Board Director Glenn Lancaster, a resident of the Country Club Estates neighborhood, has already been doing this in his area.  To help with the logistics of volunteering, Glenn has asked the HOA board presidents to solicit folks to volunteer.   He will meet with volunteers to help them obtain the petition and explain the details of collecting signatures.

If you are interested in volunteering to collect signatures from CHOA residents, please contact Glenn directly.  Please also let me know if you volunteer so I can keep track of CHOA’s participation.  You can find our contact information in the CCC directory.

Annual Great Shakeout

Hello CHOA Residents,

It is almost time for the annual Great Shake Out. This year it will be held on Thursday, September 14 at 6:14 PM.

One of your neighborhood Captains will be stopping by with a flyer explaining  what to do during and after the drill.  They will also leave a HELP/OK sign for you to post in a place that can be easily seen from the street.

Many of the CHOA neighborhoods gather after the drill to share some time together.

There will be drawing for a great raffle prize. So bring your raffle ticket with you to the gathering.

We need to be prepared before a disaster strikes!

Marilyn Ellwood, CHOA Key Captain

Charbonneau Pink Ball

To: Charbonneau friends

As you know, once again, Charbonneau Niners are sponsoring the Pink Ball golf tournament to support Cancer Research at OHSU Knight Cancer Institute on Tuesday, September 12th. 

18 years ago, Charbonneau Women’s Niners Golf decided to make a difference in the fight against cancer with the Pink Ball Golf Tournament.  To this day they have raised nearly $800,000 for the Knight Cancer Institute at OHSU and prior to 2014, to Susan G Komen and the American Cancer Society.

OHSU Knight foundation has made huge strides in early cancer detection.  Cancer Early Detection Advanced Research (CEDAR) researchers have devised an accurate and novel way to test blood to see if a pre-cancerous condition is escalating to outright cancer—potentially enabling treatment early in tumor development when cancer is more likely to be curable.  They are evaluating a multi-cancer early detection test that can detect 50 types of cancer through a simple blood draw and have expanded their studies across Oregon with other health institutions.  As well, they have more ongoing research into other cancers including research into pancreatic cancer.

This year OHSU will debut their new Information Van traveling the country – talk with the experts and pick up valuable information.

So, how can you help? We are hoping you will join us in this worthwhile cause by participating as a sponsor at one of our four levels and/or making a donation.  All donations will be acknowledged by OHSU for Tax purposes. For questions on Sponsorship Levels contact Brenda Gardiner at 503-539-8280.   

For all donations, please make your check payable to OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and place it in the Niner’s box in the pro-shop, or mail it to:  Brenda Gardiner, 7675 SW Fairway Drive, Wilsonville, OR  97070.

EXCITING NEWS! This year, the Pink Ball Committee is opening up the Silent Auction for the Charbonneau community on Monday, September 11th from 4-7 p.m. in the Clubhouse.  For non-golfers and those not able to play, this is an opportunity to view and bid on 80 baskets!  You can place a bid and return on Tuesday to see how you did and/or increase you bid.  Join us back in the clubhouse on Tuesday at 11:00 a.m.

Questions?  Call Mary Fieweger 503-519-4388 or email 

Thank you.
