Get ready for the Talent Show at 7:15! Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • A performance that is no longer than three minutes. There will be a friendly gong reminder, if needed.
  • A family friendly act (if you have a burlesque talent, that would be a different show).

HPIC’s Centennial Celebration, Saturday November 16our 100th Birthday Party!
The Food Committee requests volunteers to make “Afternoon Tea Finger Food” for the event – please contact Nickie.


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!
