Neighborhood Honors Highland Heroes

Over 70 persons from the Highland neighborhood and area churches joined together on October 18 to honor Shreveport's fire fighters and police officers and to visit each other at a delicious covered dish supper.

This group found a good place for eating

Bungalow Living--The Spirit of Highland Was A Great Birthday Bash

Below are a few photos from Bungalow Living--The Spirit of Highland. We started with an informative program at the Meadows Museum, sampled great refreshments there, visited with each other and Mayor Glover, then on to the bungalow tour, capping eveything off with birthday cake on a lovely bungalow porch to commemorate HRA's 30th anniversary!
