Super Saturday-Henrik Bothe

Come join the North Plains Public Library at Jessie Mays Community Center for fun performers and activities for all ages! Super Saturday events are always a blast and always free!

Saturday March 11, 2017
Henrik Bothe!

Mix the gentle humor of Victor Borge, the physical agility of Seinfeld’s Kramer, and the cross-generational appeal of Charlie Chaplin and you have some idea of what Henrik Bothe brings to the stage.

He spins plates, walks on ladders, juggles without using his hands, spins ropes, manipulates fancy hats, and rides a unicycle that’s higher than your expectations. Most important of all, he connects with his audience.

Washington County Museum New Exhibit: Timber in the Tualatin Valley

We are proud to announce that “Timber in the Tualatin Valley” is our new permanent exhibit, sponsored by Stimson Lumber Company! With many original artifacts on loan from local collector Bill Racine, this display aims to teach visitors about the history of logging in Washington County, from the first pioneers to railroading to gas-powered engines.

Much of the local ancestry here tracks back to the loggers of the old days, who carved out this area for homesteads and town sites beginning in the 1860s. Learn about the dangers of the job and what camp life was like for loggers through the tools they used in the woods! Feel what it is like to lay on a straw mattress in the bunkhouse, take a funny photo in our head-in-a-hole logger cutout, and learn about the area on our touch screen mapping program. Check out our calendar for upcoming talks about the industry as well! The Museum is located at Hillsboro Civic Center, (2nd floor above Starbucks), 120 E Main Street,
