Business Association Notes February 2022

Hawthorne Blvd. Business Association

By Nancy Chapin

A warm welcome to the Boulevard Beautification Bunch! We recognize there are a few areas on Hawthorne that don’t have business people and neighbors looking after them or they are so daunting (some of the graffiti, for example) that it takes special preparation to clean them up. Their first venture out will be Saturday, February 12, 10 am-Noon. Meet at Dairy Hill Ice Cream, SE 36th Ave. and Hawthorne Blvd., and head out from there or if you’ve signed up for a business block, let us know. Bring gloves, bucket, bags and a picker if you have them; if not, we do. 

We are still looking for ideas for Mother’s Day Saturday (May 7) specials and or events as well as Father’s Day Saturday (June 18). One suggestion is a bingo type card with specials and prizes. We’d really like to highlight businesses in lower and upper Hawthorne to balance out the Street Fair being in the middle. Ideas? Contact  

The Boy Scouts will be out again with flags for Presidents’ Day Monday, February 21. Some of the holes have disappeared. Let us know if you have one that doesn’t get a flag in it or if your business wants to create a place for a flag (a 1/2 to 3/4 inch hole about 8-10 inches deep). Thank you to all the businesses who support the flag project and to the Boy Scouts and their parents who are out early in the morning and make it happen.

See you on the Boulevard!
