HHPNA is pleased to provide monthly drop-in events to enable us to get to know each other, share ideas, baby sitters, gardening tips, favorite Spanish red wines, and so forth. You get the idea. If you have never attended a First Friday, don’t let another month go by! The November event will be at the new Fruitwood Standup Market at 2203 W Swann (at Howard). First Friday events are usually held in homes throughout the neighborhood, but we don’t always have sufficient volunteers. Please join the fun and find out what the buzz is all about. Contact Linda Aiken to help her create the fun in 2014.
An interesting tidbit: Amy Seng, a producer for DIY Network’s Desperate Landscapes, is searching for the ugliest front yards in America, one of which will be chosen for a huge two-day landscape transformation for “America’s Most Desperate Landscape.” They bring all the tools, building materials and supplies. The homeowner brings plenty of personality and sweat equity! If you have a front yard in need of serious help, and want to be considered for this casting call, check us out by going to DIY Network: http://www.diynetwork.com/about-us/do-you-have-one-of-americas-most-desperate-landscapes/index.html. We can’t think of a yard in Hyde Park that would qualify.
