It’s the time of year when we start gearing up for summer, fall and winter activities. Your business neighbors invite you to remember us for your shopping, dining and personal needs. Go to thinkhawthorne.com to find the item, food or services you are looking for.

Mark your calendars now and invite your family and friends to visit on Sunday, August 3 for a boulevard party in conjunction with the World Cup Soccer event.

Then come back Sunday, August 17 for the Annual Hawthorne Street Fair. You will be entertained with staged music, children’s activities, good food, vendors, artists, musicians, gifts for yourself and others and more!  Hmmm…

I wonder what our intrepid raccoon mascot will be doing this year….

Watch for the Second Edition of the Sustainable SE Map; a guide to many of the businesses from Powell to Stark and the Willamette River to Cesar Chavez Blvd. who have gained official recognition as operating in a Sustainable manner. We expect the recognized businesses to grow every time it is published.
