A Venture Portland grant supported new banners along Hawthorne Blvd. to welcome neighbors, visitors and friends.

The Hawthorne Boulevard Business Association, HBBA,  announced the installation of new street banners designed by graphic designer Amy Chan and installed for the Hawthorne Street Fair in late August. The remainder was completed in September. 

The banners contain an image of the iconic Hawthorne Bridge and the design and warm color create a welcoming space for visitors and neighbors in time for the Holidays. 

The Tree-lighting and other festivities are December 7 at Fernie Brae on SE 41st and Hawthorne Blvd.
