All donations need to be received by December 11th.
A minimum of one scholarship of $1000.00 will be awarded each year in the spring, for use during the next scholastic year beginning in the fall. The Board of Directors reserve the right to increase the number of scholarships awarded to no more than three of $1000.00 each, provided sufficient funds have been acquired to fund the awards.
Highland Community Prayer Breakfast
Every year on the National Day of Prayer (the first Thursday of May), residents and businesses from Highland come to together to pray for our country, state and community. Clergy from the area provide prayers and local choirs have helped us with this amazing community event.

Founder's Day Festival
Our local communities have great events like the May Founder's Day Festival. The HWLBA participates and over the years we have walked in the parade and last year, we had a Pie Making Contest! Our winner made a gluten-free strawberry rhubarb pie - and the whole town was able to judge!
Laughs at the Legion
Our annual Laughs at the Legion event is a great night of laughs, fun and fundraising for the HWLBA Scholarships! We have been hosting this event for over a decade. The Legion is a phenomenal partner providing the space and all kinds of help. All proceeds from this event benefit our scholarship program.
The HWLBA helps with various programs across the community, including our involvement with the Highland Community Round Table and the new play space., Chill at the Mill. As the need arises, we pitch in to help and keep our members informed as to the upcoming events and ways to get involved.
Highland Civiliity Campaign and CommUnity Dinner
The HWLBA has partnered with Highland Twp and the Highland Twp Public Library to focus on civility for the month of October. As we look at our community, how can we build the neighborliness, how can be build bridges. We don't have to agree on everything, but we do need to make an effort to understand and come together for the good of Highland. The Civility Campaign includes daily activities that are easy to do but can have big impact (click here for a full calendar of events) and a special CommUnity Dinner on October 19th at the Huron Valley Council for the Arts building. We have 2 guest speakers, U.S. House Representative Haley Stevens and Michigan Senator Ruth Johnson coming in to talk about how they have worked across the aisle for the greater good as well as an improv group to help us see "how not" to have those conversations. Then, have dinner with some new friends. We will bring the dinner, you bring the conversation. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased here(
