Hawthorne Blvd. Business Association

Not only was the Boulevard Beautification Bunch (BBB) out on the second Saturday in February, but many businesses’ staff people have been sweeping and cleaning and they have allowed the Saturday volunteers to put collected garbage into their trash containers.
Speaking of trash containers, we send our appreciation to the City for those that have recently been installed on the Boulevard. They are emptied on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We look forward to having the ability to clean up the graffiti, too, as we get permissions and matching paint from business owners. Next BBB Cleanup: Saturday, March 12, 10 am-12 pm.
The HBBA Annual Meeting is open to all and takes place on Zoom Thursday, March 24, starting at 6:30 pm. Contact email@example.com for details.
Come take a walk on the Boulevard, share a meal, buy a present, enjoy a movie, appreciate the imagination of the outdoor seating opportunities, breathe deeply and enjoy!

We will be celebrating the arrival of spring with our first monthly cleanup of 2022 on Saturday, March 26, 10 am-12 pm. We’re not sure which of our four sections will start the fun this year, however, SOLVE will know.
The 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade, “Roses in the Heart of Portland,” is waiting until 2023 to “hit the road again.” There will soon be a virtual parade to remind us of the good times and to support the Parade’s Presenter, 82 Roses Community Enrichment Coalition, in getting us ready for 2023!
