Dear Highland Park Staff, Residents, Friends and Families,

Thank you so much for making the Highland Park Centennial Birthday Celebration a complete success. Throughout the years, the Town of Highland Park has represented a united community, and we were all witness to that this past weekend. We appreciate your support and committment to making our community the best it can be. Once and for all, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Here's to the next 100 years...

Celebrating the Town of Highland Park's Centennial, art students in the school district's four elementary schools were asked to create their impressions of what life was like in 1913. From the hundreds of offerings, 40 were selected to be displayed at the Centennial Celebration October 27 at Lakeside Park - and afterwards at the Highland Park Village. Holding two entries is Linda Raya, legendary Director of Fine arts for the school district - she's holding a depiction of a horse-drawn school bus and an old soda fountain at Highland Park Pharmacy.

We have had SUCH a wonderful turnout for each of the movies featured during our Classic Film Festival. Thank you for joining us on each occasion. Since we've had so much success, we just wanted to remind movie-goers to get to the HP Village Theater around 6:00pm so you can get a seat. Since these are free events, we must use the "first come, first served" basis. Join us for our next showing of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance" on August 5th, 2013. We appreciate your cooperation and hope you enjoy the movies!

The 4th of July parade in the Park Cities was a complete hit! Thank you to all of the family and friends who joined us for the celebrations. The HP100 float was a great success, as well. Please note the famous HP100 letters will be featured at the birthday celebration on October 27th, 2013 at Lakeside Park. Looking forward to seeing all of you then!

We need volunteers for this weekend's Highland Park Centennial Book Festival. Please sign up here and come lend a hand! We will be holding a volunteer orientation at 7:00 p.m. at the Highland Park United Methodist Church on 3300 Mockingbird Lane in room  244. The orientation should only take about half an hour to 45 minutes.
