Hawthorne Blvd. Business Association
By Nancy Chapin

It’s October and the feel and scent of holidays is in the air! In addition to Halloween, Thanksgiving, special holiday events and lighting, you are invited to the Holiday Celebration on Sunday, December 3 at Rivermark Credit Union’s (2537 SE Hawthorne Blvd.) parking lot, which will have more fun and activities than in past years! Starting at 2 pm, with the tree-lighting at 5 pm, there will be music, ornament-making, holiday gift ideas, Santa and more!
The PARK(ing) event on SE 37th Ave. in parking spaces and a portion of the street near The Bagdad, Echo Theater and 37th Street Salon was fun and well attended as the day went on. Thank you to all three businesses for sharing their street and parking spaces so neighbors and others could see what a plaza might be like and to look over HBBA’s opportunity to manifest a kiosk somewhere in the District.
We welcome your ideas; contact
