The debris from the fallen awning is cleaned up, a support post was put under the awning next to Holden and repairs were made to the handrails. We are now back open for classes and meetings. We still have a large dumpster in the middle of the parking lot for removal of the awning on the Holden side. We hope to have that awning removed soon but, until it is, we are not going to be able to support any large rentals or Corner Bar. Hopefully, we will get the rest of the awning removed very soon, as none of us want to miss Corner Bar!
Thanks to all that helped! We just wrapped it up. There will not be a work party tomorrow. Many hands made light work! We do have a small pile of metal next to the large dumpster in case anyone is interested in saving us from cutting it up to size for the recycle bin! It is yours for the taking.
We are also putting out the call for a bonded contractor to remove the awning that has not fallen. We are hoping to hire someone from the neighborhood.
Help for “Eyebrow” Un-raising
Skills/tools needed: Sawzall, circular saw, long extension cords, gloves, eye protection, and ear protection if you want. The structure needs to be cut up and then placed into the dumpster in such a way that it holds all the material. There will be lots of nails poking out, so tough clothing, shoes and gloves highly recommended. If you want to bring snacks, that’s great too.
And even if you want to just stop by – please do, and cheer on the Eyebrow Un-Raising!

Our annual winetasting fundraiser is growing up, inspired by the proliferation of wonderful local wineries in our neighborhood! Now, instead of you bringing the wine, we will featuring some superb wines from 8 local wineries. All the wine will be provided for you.
Upon entrance, you will receive a commemorative wineglass for tasting. You will be invited to enjoy tastings from the Northwest Wine Academy, while you peruse the raffle baskets and purchase raffle tickets. You can gaze upon the art donated by local artists, whose work will be available to bidding on through our new Silent Art Auction.

During the wine tasting, you’ll get an opportunity to taste a variety of wines provided by 8 local wineries. Tables will enjoy a fun and enlightening journey that challenges them to identify the varietals poured, as well as the top wines of the evening. Each table will have an opportunity to walk away with some great prizes! Following the tasting, a select amount of the wines presented for tasting will be available for purchase by the glass, or by the bottle (to take home) at a discounted rate. And, for the beer-lovers who attend, we will be selling a selection of quality beers.
Adding to the fun this year, we present Wine Roulette, where you purchase a chance to win a high-value bottle of wine for the bargain price of a ticket.
Our annual winetasting event is a big fundraiser for the club, and all the money received goes to support building and site improvements. Last year, we made sidewalk replacements required by the city after the installation of our donated courtyard, and roof repairs to accommodate our donated solar panels. This year we will be installing fencing to enclose the courtyard for safety and to extend the bar outside, and signature signage will be installed on the building, reflecting the identity and character of HPIC and our neighborhood.

But arrive earlier and enjoy the food and wine tasting available. If you do not preregister, then you should be there as early as possible and hope that seating is still available.
