September Meeting Postponed

Dear HPNA members, neighbors, and friends of the community:

We are postponing our general September meeting, which was to be held on Wednesday, September 7th at 7:30 pm at the Cordero School.  

At our next meeting on October 5th at 7:30 at the Cordero School, representatives of the Realty Appraisal Group will discuss the city-wide property reassessment. Since this is an important topic that will impact the future of the community, everyone should attend.

Additionally, mark your calendars for the HPNA Annual Halloween Parade  on October 29th in the park.  And lastly, don't forget to support the Farmer's Market tomorrow and every Wednesday from 4 to 8 pm at the Gazebo.

Please stay dry this week!

Amy Ertel
HPNA President
