This year, the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council (SLNC) has funded many community events as well as a grant to provide services to the homeless.

On April 5th, the board approved funding for several new community projects and Neighborhood Purpose Grants, all benefiting Silver Lake residents.

We are extremely excited to support Mayberry Street Elementary School’s Vegetable Garden, which assists in promoting healthy food choices for students and their families.

The board also voted to provide funds to The Friends Of The Silver Lake Library for a portable projector and to purchase much needed listening devices to assist those with hearing limitations. The Silver Lake Library is truly a jewel within the SLNC’s boundaries and we look forward to strengthening our neighborhood ties that lovingly bind us.

We are also excited to unveil new brochures chronicling the history of Silver Lake and to premiere the Silver Lake Stairway Maps. Our goal is to have all of the iconic public stairways designated as historical cultural monuments. For more information regarding the SLNC’s Adopt A Stairway program, please visit silverlakneng.org.

And we are proud to help fund this year’s American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event, Saturday, May 20th at the Mulholland Fountain.

The Silver Lake Picture Show will be screening A League Of Their Own, with funds from the SLNC, as part of its summer schedule. We were also pleased to support a Taste of the Eastside at the Los Angeles River Center and Gardens April 30th.

And back by popular demand—or more importantly doggie doodoo demands—the SLNC will again provide free dog waste bags around the Silver Lake reservoirs. Please don’t be greedy! Take only one bag! They are in great demand and the supply runs out very quickly.
