Board meetings: Second Wednesdays at 8 am       

Western Seminary Bueermann Hall, Room 201             

5511 SE Hawthorne Blvd.

Wow!  The sun is shining and Spring is upon us at full strength!!

The businesses on Hawthorne “Between the Drawbridge and the Volcano” are open and ready to greet you, feed you, share their skills, show you their new menu or merchandise or provide you one of the many services that the Boulevard has to offer.  This is a great time to start in the middle and walk the entire Boulevard to remind yourself of the old, the new and your favorite places from the past.

Planning for the Hawthorne Street Fair is happening now.  We are pleased to announce that this year’s non-profit recipient will be the Friends of Mt. Tabor Park Stewardship Fund. The next meeting will be on Thursday May 3rd at 11am at Hawthorne Hostel, 3031 SE Hawthorne.

“Ditch the Straw” Day will be on Tuesday, June 5th.  If you will not be using plastic straws on World Environment Day, let Michele at Hawthorne Hostel know: michele.machado@hiusa.org.

There will be a major Cleanup on Hawthorne and in the Neighborhoods on June 16th.  KINK Radio is helping get the word out. Mark your calendar and watch for details.

The HBBA Board of Directors wrote to the City requesting that the Graffiti Removal program be continued as a City service.  Remember to take pictures of graffiti before you remove it and send them to the PDX Reporter app.

Thank you to 2018 Benefactors: Fred Meyer Hawthorne, New Seasons Market and Wells Fargo Bank and 2018 SE Examiner Sponsors: Hawthorne Vision Center and Rivermark Community Credit Union.
