HCA Holiday Party
All Hillandale residents are welcome to attend the annual Hillandale Holiday Party on December 4 from 5-7PM at the CHI Centers building located at 10501 New Hampshire Ave. This is a pot luck event and we invite you to bring your favorite dish or dessert to share with all. The HCA will provide some items (turkey and barbecue) but we are looking for other main courses, salads or side dishes as well as desserts. A craft project will be provided to entertain the children while parents have a chance to catch up with neighbors. And, that famous North Pole visitor has been invited and is expected to arrive with great fanfare and lights flashing. Make sure that your little ones are ready! Volunteers are needed to help with planning, the set-up, monitoring the children activities, working on the serving line, and clean up.
A Message to the Community
The Hillandale Citizens Association is disheartened by the incident of a post election hate crime which occurred at the Church of our Saviour located at the corner of Powder Mill Road and Greenacres Drive. HCA condemns these actions, which are not a reflection of our diverse and inclusive community.
Representatives from HCA have been in direct communication with the church's leadership and we have reassured them that the community is behind them as they are our neighbors. HCA also delivered a signed letter of support to the church which you can view here.
HCA Membership Drive
Although we do not have mandatory annual dues and the Hillandale Citizen's Association is not incorporated, we are still a very active and busy neighborhood association with a history that goes back decades. Each year we solicit a voluntary $20 dues contribution from all households in the greater Hillandale community. This money goes to cover our basic operating expenses each year and maintain a reserve fund. It also helps to pay for community activities such as the holiday party and National Night Out.

Hillandale Local Park
There’s real positive news about our park! With new improvements happening and future plans coming forward for funding approval, our park is finally getting the attention it has needed for many years! The new pavilion has grills, five picnic tables and a water fountain. The design includes stone covered pillars and a modern roof cover.

A Hillandale Greeting!
Do you have a new neighbor? Have you just moved here yourself? Please email the Greeters Committee to ensure you/your neighbor receives a proper Hillandale welcome!
Hillandale has its own custom for welcoming new residents - the Hillandale Greeters Committee! New neighbors will be visited by a member of the Hillandale Greeters committee a few months after they settle in. The greeters, some who have lived in the community for more than 20 years, give our new neighbors a very warm welcome. They provide a comprehensive brochure which includes the history of Hillandale and important local information such as phone numbers for residential services and utilities. The greeters inform our newest residents about the activities of the Hillandale Citizens Association and encourage everyone to join and become an active member of the Hillandale community.
