Dance this Saturday

The Highland Park Improvement Club Holiday Potluck and Dance is a warm tradition that gathers friends and neighbors to celebrate the season by sharing food and good times, and collecting toys for children and food for the food bank.

Enjoy dancing and fun with friends old and new.

And watch for our New Years Eve plans…coming soon! We are planning the Not-So-Silent Night Parade, the Sage Comet fire performance and the Highland Park House Party…a neighborhood jukebox with a playlist that will keep you happy & dancing well into the New Year. Plus, gourmet homemade food from the neighborhood foodistas!

Help the neighborhood trim our tree!

Here’s an invitation from Dan Mullins, Chair of HPAC (Highland Park Action Committee):

Instead of November and December HPAC meetings, we have decided to roll them together into one
Big HPAC Holiday Potluck & Tree Trimming Party!
Our last meeting in October had the best pot-luck buffet so far, but we want it to be even bigger and better at our special Holiday Pot-Luck!
The HP Improvement Club has also asked for our help in trimming their big ol’ fake tree and I bet they have 90 years worth of lights and bulbs and garland and everything we might need to make it spectacular.
So tell your neighbors, bring the kids and let’s get in the holiday spirit!

New, improved website!

As always, there’s still lots to do here. The main thing was to get a new framework up and running, and have a format where people can upload comments, pictures, video and all that cool stuff. And have it be easily updated. The blog part of the site will help keep it current, and the pages will hold the more static information.

There will be some learning curve, but lots more activity and information on the site.
