A volunteer-powered neighborhood gathering place.

The Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC) has been the heart of our community since 1919. HPIC belongs to our neighborhood and is powered by volunteers. 

We're the only gathering place in your community. Join us for our next neighborhood event!

Support our local four-legged furry friends!

HPIC is helping to support a caring local teenager:

Donate-today-200x169.jpgHi, my name is Delaney and Im a volunteer with the Humane Teen Club. I am collecting donations for Seattle Humanes pet food bank. They distribute food to seniors and people with low income or disabilities so that they can keep their pets for as long as possible. Studies have proven that pets greatly improve quality of life, especially for those with illness or little social contactSeattle Humane distributes food to more than 30 senior centers and food banks, and other clients have food delivered to their homes.

I am able to accept dog or cat food and treats of any kind— it can even be opened or expired! If you would like to contribute, there is a bin at Highland Park Improvement Club through the end of March!  You can bring your donations to any HPIC event or class. Also, I would be happy to pick up your donationyou can reach me through my mom at: lajwestseattle@gmail.com.

Thank you Highland Park Neighbors! - Delaney


MOVIE NIGHT - Friday March 16th!

Doors open at 6:00pm. Children's short at 6:15pm.  Feature movie at 7:00 pm.

The third Friday of every month, we open up as your local FREE movie theater! We pull down our big screen and show a double feature. Volunteers will be selling popcorn, candy and other move fare. Bring blankets and pillows or sit on our chairs. This is an all ages event. Bring your friends, Family and neighbors!

Movie hint: In the Mexican town of San Angel, Manolo (Diego Luna), Maria (Zoë Saldana) and Joaquin (Channing Tatum) have been friends ever since childhood. Although their lives have taken different paths -- Maria was sent to Europe, Joaquin joined the military, and Manolo studied to become a bullfighter -- one thing remains the same: Manolo and Joaquin both want to marry Maria. Little does the trio know that battling husband-and-wife deities have made a high-stakes wager on the love triangle's outcome



Calling all HPIC Garden Volunteers: Time to Wake Up the Gardens!!

With spring just around the corner we'll be gathering at HPIC on SUNDAY, MARCH 18, 9am to Noon to take a look at the state of the gardens, plan our care for the summer and do a little work.


Many folks have voiced a desire to get involved, so we've planned this time to meet up and get started. Many hands make light work!
