CPO 15

Blooming and Fern Hill



Join CPO 15 at their next meeting: 
Wed., May 16, 7 p.m.

On the agenda:

  • Emergency Preparedness
    Guest speaker: Stacy Metzger, MS OD, Support Volunteer with Forest Grove Fire & Rescue and Coordinator for the Forest Grove Map Your Neighborhood Program
    Stacy will talk about how you can get prepared for a disaster quickly, cheaply, and make it fun. A recent State report indicates the Cascadia quake could level as many as 1,600 buildings and hurt or kill 18,000-27,000 people. Despite these staggering statistics, the quake could be survivable if you are prepared!

CPO 15 Nov 2017 meeting.

CPO 15 receives accolades on its Homelessness Forum!

Many came from across the county to share in a discussion about homelessness and how it affects those living in the rural areas.

The joint November forum, Homelessness - A Rural Discussion, was a huge success. County Commissioner Bob Terry applauded the efforts of CPO 10 and CPO 15, and cited the event as an example of what he sees as an effective role of the CPOs and an illustration of a great program. He said it was the most well attended CPO meeting he has seen to date. One of the forum's presenters, Brian Schimmel, produced a wonderful, informative video of the forum. This video provides practical information about how you can help the local programs helping the homeless and what you can do if you encounter homeless people on our rural properties. It is a good use of an hour to watch this video.

Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that will utilize your leadership skills and make a difference in your community?  

After 15 years, CPO 15 Chair Peggy Harris is stepping down. She will remain active in the CPO, and will help to make the transition a smooth one for a new chair. In addition, the CPO 15 Steering Committee could use additional volunteer support to help plan meetings and events.
