The HPCC organizes and sponsors events in the neighborhood throughout the year. Check here for updates on upcoming events and pictures from past events.
2nd Annual HPCC Pumpkin Patch
On Oct 17, the neighborhood welcomed crisp fall weather and the HPCC’s second annual Pumpkin Patch! Folks of all ages came to enjoy the decorations, choose pumpkins, and pick up grab-and-go Halloween craft packs. Over 75 visitors stopped by including long-time, new, and former residents. You can still stop by the Bryant Street parklet to see the fall decorations.
Donations raised support the HPCC’s activities. Extra pumpkins were distributed to businesses on and near Bryant Street. Special thanks to the volunteers who came down on Saturday for the parklet clean up!
