Welcome To September – And New Beginnings

We’re back – and ready for some new beginnings.

After a period of reflection, we’re back. And in the spirit of new beginnings, we wanted to reach out and say hello. Build community! And tell you what’s going on in ours. Because we’re a place full of neighbors and friends, people who care deeply about Oregon, the world, and each other. So stay tuned as we bring you more in the coming months about life here at Terwilliger Plaza.

Members Speak: New Beginnings
What does New Beginnings mean to you?

“New beginnings means being willing to embrace life as it comes to you. Moving to the Plaza was a new beginning, another step in my life journey.  I loved the places I've lived in before, and I love the place I live in now.”
— Alyson Inouye

“New beginnings means to me that life is full of changes and transition, and we need to evolve and accept with excitement each day – and what it brings.”
—Sue Beardwood

What was your favorite part about the eclipse?
