HPIC has received a generous $50,000 grant from 4Culture for structural improvements and partial roofing for the building.

Thanks to 4Culture for supporting our neighborhood gathering space and recognizing its value with this grant. We look forward to these mostly hidden but important upgrades that will keep us strong.

The Highland Park Improvement Club is Celebrating its Centennial Birthday all through 2019!

We will be honoring this significant milestone all year long at Corner Bar and in our newsletter, each month revealing a theme and connection to what was going on in the world and our community, culminating in a large celebration in November 2019! We seek to share the biography of our story over the past 100 years, commemorating our rich historical presence  and meaningful contributions to the community, honoring the people that have defined and sustained our presence and made us what we are today, and inspiring every neighbor to join the volunteer family that makes up the spirit of HPIC, ensuring our continued presence for the next 100 years to come. Come celebrate with us!
