    2018 Booked for Success

        The annual Booked for Success drive is under way to help William Walker Elementary School students buy books at the Scholastic Book Fair March 7 and 8. Print the attached flyer to promote this event!

      Sponsored by the Central Beaverton Neighborhood Association with substantial support from the Rotary Club of Beaverton, the drive is aimed at providing a $7 coupon to each of the approximately 480 students, assuring that they can supplement school work with recreational reading. Educators say such additional reading is vital to improve children’s literacy.

       William Walker is a Title 1 school, the designation for schools with high numbers of children from low income families.

        In addition to a grant from the City of Beaverton and major donation from Rotary, funds will come from the NAC’s fund raising activities. These include direct donations (which may be made by sending a check to CBNAC, Neighborhood Program, PO Box 4755, Beaverton 97076), eating at Pietro’s Pizza, 13281 Canyon Road, on February 22 (and telling the cashier you are there for CBNAC) and the sale of tickets to Beaverton Civic Theater productions and Beavers of Beaverton coloring books (both available from CBNAC members). Contact Roberta Ulrich at bobbietu@gmail.com for more information about purchasing coloring books or Beaverton Civic Theatre tickets.

      The Book Fair is conducted by the SHINE program through Impact NW, in partnership with Scholastic Books, an international publisher of age-appropriate books for children.

  • Historic Beaverton Walking Map
    Central Beaverton NAC and the Beaverton Historical Society partnered to create this guide, which highlights downtown Beaverton’s historic homes and variety of flora.

  • Mural at Global Art of Dance
    This beautiful new mural reflects the art, dance and music of the many different cultural groups in Beaverton. Central Beaverton NAC members provided support to the dance studio owners and the mural artists to make Beaverton’s newest art mural a reality.
  • Summer Theatre in the Park
    For many years the Central Beaverton NAC has helped sponsor the Beaverton Civic Theatre’s free Theatre in the Park events at Schiffler Park. Recent productions have included “Songs for a New World” and “Side by Side by Sondheim.”


*Events made possible through the Neighborhood Matching Grant Program. If you have ideas go to your next NAC meeting and let them know.

About the Central Beaverton NAC


Welcome to the Central Beaverton Neighborhood Association Committee (NAC). We meet monthly to discuss ideas and issues, and work on projects to improve our neighborhood. Anyone that lives, owns property (including a business), or represents a nonprofit organization within the neighborhood boundaries is a member.

The NAC meeting is the designated forum for committee participants to share ideas and community news with neighbors. It is also an opportunity to meet with city officials on various issues throughout the year.

History

Central Beaverton is at the heart of Beaverton. Its boundaries include the intersection of Canyon Road and Farmington Road and the heavy and light rail systems. Central Beaverton has seen it all. Canyon Road used to be wood-planked and the railroad is what used to connect Beaverton to the outside world. MAX wasn’t the first electric commuter train to grace Beaverton Central. The Oregon Electric Railway and Red Electric both provided service to Beaverton from Portland and on to Hillsboro. Hop pickers commuted from Portland to Beaverton for the harvest on the electric train systems. And Beavertonians took the train to Oaks Park in Portland on the weekends. The train systems ran from approximately 1908 to 1925. Diesel trains eventually took over in the 1950s. Many remnants of the past are still prevalent all over Central Beaverton today. Central Beaverton also includes the Beaverton City Mall, former home of the Bernard Airport, west-adjacent to Cedar Hills Boulevard. Until 1966, when it was demolished to build the mall, Bernard Airport was Oregon’s oldest operating airport. Central Beaverton is host to several registered historical sites.
