September Neighborhood News & Events

We value and would love your contributions to the newsletter! If you have a relevant and appropriate neighborhood event and/or news article you would like to share, please email [email protected] and we will let you know if we are able to include it a future Hilltop e-newsletter. 

The Kids are back in school!  We have many wonderful schools in Hilltop and want to remind everyone to be safe, slow down and keep your eyes open — especially in the mornings and afternoons as parents are walking their kids to and from school, kids are biking or skateboarding, and everyone is loading and unloading! We all hope our kids are being safe, looking both ways and making good decisions but that doesn’t always happen. So, please slow down and be vigilant. Let’s make sure everyone stays safe!
