Weekly News & Updates

Hello Highland Park!

Welcome to your weekly edition of our HHPNC newsletter. We had a really fun time at the holiday Christmas parade yesterday. It was good to see the community out celebrating. The Highland Park Chamber of Commerce always does a great job putting the parade together. Do you know this parade is more than 70 years old? That is pretty amazing, and a testament to how much we love our traditions and community spirit in Highland Park.

We have a new treasurer! Well, she is actually a returning treasurer. Joan Potter is returning to serve with us once again. She was approved by the board unanimously at our last board meeting.

There is more holiday fun coming up in the neighborhood this week. Don’t miss our Santa Toy Giveaway this Saturday, and the Highland Park Christmas Tree Lighting at the Senior Center this Sunday.

Thanks for reading, and for staying involved in our wonderful community. We look forward to seeing you soon!

My best,

Harvey Slater
Your HHPNC President
