One of Patricia Barnett’s favorite memories was of having ice cream with her father. When he died she decided to honor that memory by starting her own shop reports The Oregonian.
Barnett’s creation, Gelato and Yogurt Lounge at 13611 N.W. Cornell Road, also aims to serve up a scoop of community involvement along with its cold treats and espresso drinks.
“I live in the area and I love the community,” said Barnett, who is hoping to get the word out to local clubs and teams that she and business partner Bryan Kelley are willing to help them raise money for their projects.
“If they want to pick certain times on a Saturday, I’ll give 10 percent of all sales made during that time to the group,” she said.
