Handel's crew
Handel's ice cream sign

Handel’s Ice Cream is open

Open daily 11 am-10 pm, 13539 NW Cornell Rd., 503-268-1306

Just in time for summer, Tim Joyce has opened his second Handel’s Ice Cream location in Oregon in the former Dotty’s space next to Safeway. The enthusiastic crew is ready to serve up dozens of flavors in cones and dishes, and a variety of ice cream treats like sundaes, splits, and shakes, and there’s even Frosty Paws ice cream for dogs!

Tim grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, where Handel’s originated, and he’s been enjoying their delicious recipes for 60 years. He opened his first Oregon store in Sherwood last summer, and started looking for his second location last year. He is looking forward to serving us for many years to come.

Touchmark opens on Swede Hill

Touchmark Ext.

In late June, Touchmark in the West Hills welcomed the first residents to its full-service retirement community. The long-planned development now occupies over 70 acres northeast of Barnes and Leahy, and includes a variety of home styles and services for seniors, from active and independent to those in need of more support. Two stone and stucco lodges on a forested slope offer a beautiful natural setting with an adjacent private vineyard and commanding views of the valley all the way to the Coast Range.

The Clubhouse Lodge includes 126 condo-style one- and two-bedroom homes for independent living. Several restaurants offer fine dining with a view in The Sterling Room, Charley’s Bistro for lighter fare and terrace dining, and the Swede Hill Public House with seasonal entrees, salads, burgers and sandwiches. An included flexible meal plan lets residents decide when and where they want to use their monthly meal credit.

The Terrace Lodge offers 139 homes providing health services and support for daily living including meals, early dementia support, memory care, and home care services.

A health and fitness club offers membership to residents and the public (55+) with a pool and spa, fitness equipment and classes, and a program and equipment to increase balance. A full calendar of activities including games and outings encourages residents to make friends and stay engaged.

Other amenities include a community garden and greenhouse, outdoor sports courts, valet parking, salon, lounges, and plenty of spaces for casual and formal gatherings, including a private dining room for residents to host their own events. Original northwest art covers the walls and is incorporated into many of the architectural features.

Sunset Credit Union’s ‘ClickSWITCH’ service makes changing financial institutions EASY

We’ve all been there—your current financial institution is making mistake after mistake on your account (or simply has poor service) and you’re tired of it. You want to leave it, but the hassle of switching everything over to a new financial institution seems daunting and too much work.

To address these problems and concerns, Sunset Credit Union has introduced ClickSWITCH.  Now you can easily move recurring payments and direct deposits to a new account—all with the click of a mouse.

“We know switching financial institutions can be a burden,” said Sunset Credit Union CEO, Rhonda Baggarley, “which is why we searched for a company that could make the process of leaving one financial institution and joining ours so easy.

“With our ClickSWITCH program your account information is transferred instantly and takes less than 10 minutes to do.  Since we now serve all of Washington County, we hope people will try out our ‘ClickSWITCH’ program and see what a true ‘local’ financial institution is like.”

Sunset Credit Union serves anyone who lives, works or attends school in Washington County.  They are located at 1100 NW Murray Blvd. #200. To learn more about Sunset Credit Union and their ‘ClickSWITCH’ service, visit their website at sspfcu.com or call them at 503-643-1335.
