Community center open houses set at library

Hillsboro Parks & Recreation has set a series of open houses for the public to learn more about the new 90,000-square-foot community recreation center the city proposes to build.

The City Council has identified a new facility in central Hillsboro as a top priority. It is intended to serve a part of town with few existing community recreation centers.

The open houses are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 5, Jan. 16 and Feb. 13. All the meetings will be held at the Hillsboro Main Library, 2850 N.E. Brookwood Parkway.

Storage business hosts Giving Tree

Hillsboro West Self Storage and Albertina Kerr have partnered together to present a Giving Tree in the storage company’s lobby.

Four dozen “grant-a-wish” tags hang from the tree, each one containing a wish for a child or adult with disabilities who is being serviced by Albertina Kerr.

“Many of our tenants and others who have selected one or more tags will purchase the item noted to fulfill the wish and return it to our lobby along with the tag,” said Warren Mudd, manager at Hillsboro West Self Storage. “We will deliver the fulfilled wish items to Albertina Kerr’s collection point Dec. 16.

Tenants who participate can select a “Secret Santa” envelope that contains up to $50 in rent credit for their storage unit, Mudd said. Hillsboro Self Storage is located at 602 S.W. Baseline St.
