Bank of America Homeowner Event

Great news for homeowners who are facing foreclosure! Bank of America is holding an event August 23 - 25 in Tigard where homeowners can meet face-to-face with a Bank of America Specialist to review options for loan modifications or other alternatives to foreclosure.

There are new options for homeowners in our community who are facing foreclosure. 

Last month, the State of Oregon launched the Oregon Foreclosure Avoidance Mediation Program, which ensures that homeowners have the chance to meet with their mortgage lenders and a mediator to seek alternatives to foreclosure.

Bank of America will be holding an event August 23 - 25 in Tigard, where homeowners can meet face-to-face with a Bank of America Specialist to review options for loan modifications or other alternatives to foreclosure.  

With dedicated underwriters on site, B of A teams are also able to provide same-day decisions to eligible customers at the event.

Complimentary parking will be available at the hotel. If you are a Bank of America customer, and would like to speak with someone about your mortgage, we encourage you to schedule time to attend this event.  Bank of America customers can pre-register online or by calling 1.855.201.7426

Thursday night, join Nick, our wonderful Summer Free For All sponsors, and community members at the opening night of the Washington Park Summer Festival, presented by Daimler. 

Our special opening night performance, featuring local dance company Bodyvox, will begin at 6 pm Thursday at the Rose Garden Amphitheater in Washington Park.

The very talented Bodyvox dancers will be performing a version of their hit performance "Reverie," which is a unique athletic dance that resembles ballet and jazz. 

The Festival is part of Portland Parks & Recreation’s Summer Free for All program, and features an exciting schedule of music and performances. 

All Washington Park Summer Festival concerts are free to the public, and begin every night at 6 pm between August 2 - 11.  The final festival performance on August 12 will begin at 7:30 pm.

Parking can be challenging at these popular events.  Avoid parking hassles by riding TriMet to the park. Take MAX Blue or Red line to Jeld-Wen Field, King's Hill Station or the Oregon Zoo, then catch bus #83-Washington Park Loop which runs approximately every 25 minutes, offering extended service to accommodate concert crowds. Regular TriMet fares apply.

We'd like to give special thanks to our sponsors who help make Summer Free For All possible.

Check out the 2012 Summer Free For All schedule and the Washington Park Summer Festival schedule online to find an event near you!

Great ways to cool off this weekend

Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s this weekend, and what would be a better way to cool off than visiting one of Portland Parks & Recreation?s aquatics facilities?

Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s this weekend, and what would be a better way to cool off than visiting one of Portland Parks & Recreation’s aquatics facilities?

PP&R's six indoor and seven outdoor pools are the perfect family-friendly place to escape the summer heat.

Many of our parks feature splash pads - fun water fountains for splashing around.

With the hotter temperatures, make sure you drink enough water.  Our bodies need more than the normal 8 cups of water a day when it’s hot outside!

Enjoy the summery weekend!
