What is LHENA Talks?
LHENA Talks is a monthly speaker series that takes place on the 4th Wednesday of every month from 7 to 8 p.m. Each talk features a guest speaker and focuses on community issues of interest and is sponsored by a local business. LHENA Talks strives to bring together residents, businesses, and community members alike to foster a space for fruitful discussions while highlighting the amazing work being done in our communities.
If you're looking for a fun and safe way to celebrate Halloween, come on down to Mueller Park on Saturday, October 30th from 1 to 3 p.m. for an all ages Halloween Scavenger Hunt!

The scavenger hunt is being led by Jen and Marcus, Wedge residents and the parents of an excited six-year-old who helped Wedge neighbors have some spooky fun last year and is looking forward to doing it again!
