The Board and other interested business representatives and community members are getting geared up for the Hawthorne Holiday Stroll and the 3rd Edition of the Hawthorne Holiday Gift Guide. The Stroll will be Saturday, November 29 and the Gift Guides will be out that week and will send you to interesting stores and items throughout the District from then until December 31 or as supplies last. If you know of a group – children or young people, especially. – who would like to perform on the 29, let us know at think@thinkhawthorne.

Congratulations to Presents of Mind on their 25th Anniversary which is being celebrated on October 4 and 5.

Por Que No staff on Hawthorne received a letter of thanks recently from a visitor to Portland who lost her billfold near there. Someone found it, dropped it off at Por Que No and they returned it to a family member intact, cash included. Such honesty and caring deserves kudos from us all.

The presence of Portland Police officers on Hawthorne this summer was appreciated by businesses, neighbors and visitors. It harkens back to earlier times when business people always knew the “cop on the beat” and they knew the businesses and the owners and staff. Everyone hopes this is a service that continues throughout the year.  It is good for the children and young people to see our police officers out and about, too. Thank you all.

Thank you to article sponsors, Hawthorne Vision Center and The SE Examiner and to 2014 Benefactors Safeway on Hawthorne, US Bank and New Seasons Market.
