KPIC seeks visitors, signage for new(ish) Keizer Station park

By CRAIG MURPHY Of the Keizertimes In the summer of 2010, Jill Bonney-Hill was on the way to a dedication at a park in Keizer Station. The only problem: the new member of the Keizer Points of Interest Committee (KPIC) couldn’t find what she was looking for. “I must have passed by it two or three times,” Bonney-Hill said. “Finally I saw a big crowd of people and figured that must be it.” If it’s any consolation for Bonney-Hill, she’s not alone. She is working to get people more aware of the park, which is next to Panera Bread and across Keizer Station Boulevard from Men’s Wearhouse and McDonald’s.

Beer aplenty is on tap at Growl Movement

  By CRAIG MURPHY Of the Keizertimes Want a beer? At the new Growl Movement on River Road North, there are 30 to choose from. The business, which opened March 1, is a result of a trip Matt and Lindy Mongenel took last summer. “We went on vacation in Atlanta last June,” Matt said. “This place we went had 60 beers. We wanted to open one. We have so many good beers here in the Northwest.” At Growl Movement, customers can purchase a 64-ounce container (a growler), a 32-ounce container (a growlette) or a 16-ounce glass and have it filled. Customers can also bring in their own container. The pints can be consumed on site, while the bigger two sizes must be taken off premises.
