Highland neighbors are invited to bring a covered side dish or dessert and share a meal with police officers, firefighters and other first-responders serving the neighborhood at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1.
The annual potluck dinner is hosted by Highland Restoration Association as a way to say thank you to our neighborhood first responders. It’s held at the neighborhood fire station at the corner of Line Avenue and Wilkinson St.
This year’s dinner coincides with Shreveport’s #NationalNightOut – a night designed to heighten awareness of crime and drug prevention and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.
Those interested in bringing a dish, please email HRA secretary Sydni Smith at [email protected] with what you plan to bring.
HRA will provide rotisserie chickens from new neighborhood eatery Fat Calf Brasserie thanks to the generosity of Republic Services.
This was a fun project that HRA hopes will encourage more residents to visit this neighborhood park. So next time you’re out that way, go check them out. Got an idea for a neighborhood project HRA should take on? Email it to [email protected]
6:30 -8 p.m. Thursday, August 15 | Noel United Methodist Church, 520 Herndon St.
