President’s Message

Howdy Highland Park!

There’s a lot going on in the neighborhood, as usual! Here are some highlights:

El Sereno Historical Society is working with community members, El Sereno Middle School, and Wilson High School for the Eastside’s 50th anniversary of East L.A. Chicano Blowouts in 2018 and they’re looking for volunteers to help plan. Join National Park Services on National Public Lands Day at the Audubon Center at Debs Park on Saturday September 30th (9am-12pm)! They will be doing trail work, so come prepared with some sunblock, sturdy outdoor shoes, and clothes you can get dirty in! Free lunch will be provided. The Audubon Center at Debs Park will also be hosting NEXT100 Coalition: Diversity, Inclusion & Youth Outdoors Forum on September 22nd from 6:00pm-8:30pm.
HHPNC is happy that we could support Highland Park Independent Film Festival – HPIFF with a neighborhood purpose grant. Please make sure you turn out to this great event Oct 5-8 at the Highland Theater. This film festival is a perfect example of creative forces in our neighborhood coming together. And that is just awesome! And, City hall was lit up beautifully for the celebration of El Grito de Independencia y Unidad this past Friday!

And, our regular monthly Land Use committee meeting is this evening! Read on to learn more about these events and everything else happening in our community. We look forward to seeing you out in the neighborhood soon!
