Spring in Portland means the Rose Festival is just around the corner. Princesses from Mid-county schools have been selected and will contend for the title of 100th Queen of Rosaria. Until then, these three accomplished candidates will experience a whirlwind of activities, personal appearances, parades and activities.

The first to join the court from our area was Chazmyne Brown of Parkrose High. This 18-year-old senior looks to pursue a career in music and looks forward to playing in a professional orchestra. She is a member of the state championship Parkrose Elite dance team, National Honor Society, Leadership/Student Government, Treble Choir and A-Choir, participates in the Senior Adopt a Grandparent Program and is an American Legion Award Recipient. She is the daughter of Gerald Cunningham and Jessica Brown.

The Mid-county Memo newspaper — serving the Gateway and Parkrose neighborhoods in east Portand, Oregon

One of Portland's oldest community newspapers, the Mid-county Memo was founded in May 1985. It is mailed monthly, free, to every home in a geographic-specific area of Portland, in the middle of Multnomah County, Oregon.

The Memo publishes news and perspectives of the diverse neighborhoods of east Portland that include Parkrose, Hazelwood, Russell, Gateway, Parkrose Heights, Wilkes, Glenfair, Mill Park and Madison South.

Neighborhood, library, church, senior, social and fraternal organization meetings, and events in the Gateway and Parkrose communities are also published.

The Memo circulation area encompasses the Parkrose School District entirely, and two others partially: David Douglas and Reynolds.
