Weekly News & Updates

Hey There Neighbor! 

Welcome to your weekly HHPNC news update! As usual, there is a lot happening in the neighborhood this week and in the coming weeks as we gear up for the holiday season. But first a couple recaps: 

Although it was a rainy day, the  Arroyo Arts Collective Discovery Tour gave us our annual treat of being able to tour homes, businesses, and artists’ spaces throughout Northeast Los Angeles. Many of us have neighbors, friends, and family members who participate in the tour on some level to help make it happen. In particular, our artist and creative community members rely on events like this to gain exposure to their work, grow their mailing lists, and build their sphere of potential collectors. Thank you to the Arroyo Arts Collective for all you do on behalf of the amazing creative force that thrives in our community. The rich art and culture that we have in Northeast L.A. is one of the reasons I LOVE living in Highland Park. 

Now for what’s coming up! First and foremost,  the HHPNC is looking for a new treasurer! This is a very important position as it involves keeping track of our funds and processing all the paperwork necessary to help the community with neighborhood purpose grants, pay essential vendors, and to keep our neighborhood council in compliance as a public office. If you are great with money and pushing paper, and you have a desire to help us make Highland Park an even more wonderful place to live than it already is, we welcome you to apply. You can learn how the process learns and how to apply by following the link featured in this newsletter, below. 

We have  three committee meetings tomorrow, all happening at the Arroyo Seco Library. 

Next, as you all know,  Thursday is Thanksgiving. And that marks the beginning of a really fun time here in Highland Park.  The NELA Holiday Parade follows Thanksgiving, followed by the  Holiday Tree Lighting. And I am sure there are more haps in between all of that as well. 

Read on to learn  more about attending an event, and-or getting involved with us at the neighborhood council. We look forward to seeing you out in the neighborhood soon! Don’t be a stranger!! 

Peace,
Harvey Slater
Your HHPNC President

ROLL OUT THE RAIN BARRELS
  Even though LA often doesn’t see its first significant rain event until November or December, October does signify the “official” start of the rainy season here in Southern California as is evidenced by the rain earlier this month. And, with California’s drought far from over, it’s still vital that Angelenos conserve water and harvest rainwater. Now is the perfect time to take a look at your rain barrels and ensure that they’re good to go for the coming rainy season.
