We would like to extend one more HUGE thank you to everyone that came out to support the 58th Annual Harper

Frontier Days Celebration. The event was a great success and with the proceeds the Harper Community Park was able to

pay-off the note on our Beautiful Hall! We are so excited to have it paid off and are looking forward to being able to focus

on working together with the Hill Country Horse Club to finish the Arena project now.

The annual Harper Community Park Association membership meeting will be held February 26, 2023 at 1:00 pm in the Harper Community Hall. You will be able to pay your membership fee of $35.00 at the door if you haven’t done so prior to the meeting.

We have had several weddings and events in the Hall this year and are looking forward to hosting many more. If you or someone you know has a wedding or event coming up, make sure to reserve your dates before our calendar fills up. The HCPA Board is currently setting dates for fundraising events this year so please make sure to check out our website at, and follow us on Facebook for upcoming events.

We would like to thank all of the generous SPONSORS and

AMAZING community and park members that contributed to

the 58th Annual Harper Frontier Day’s celebration - held on

September 23rd & 24th. We were so excited to bring back

the parade this year, as well as Little Mr. & Miss Harper and

the Harper Rodeo Queen! We hope everyone enjoyed the

weekend and had the chance to make it out and check out

the progress that has been made on the new arena! Make

sure to look for park & arena updates, as well as upcoming

events and information on our recently renovated website– and Facebook.

We would also like to extend a huge thank you to the volun-

teers from the American Legion, Harper FFA and commu-

nity members for cleaning up the park in preparation for the

58th Annual Frontier Day’s celebration. With the energized

groups, we were able to mow & weed eat the entire park,

clean the pavilion, the BBQ shack, paint and so much more!

Thanks again to all of you for your hard work, the park looks


Don’t forget the holiday season is just around the corner, so

On September 10th & 17th, 2022, the HCPA had park clean-up days in preparation for Frontier Days Events. We cannot thank the awesome group of Harper FFA kids and their dedicated FFA sponsors enough for all of the hard work they put in! A huge thank you is also due to the American Legion and community members who came out to help too. Together these 2 organizations and the community members have the park looking pretty dang good! If you haven’t driven through lately make sure to check out their work and take a look at the arena progress. There have been countless volunteer hours put into the arena the past couple months and it’s looking great!
