Every community deserves a voice.
With SilverLakeStar.com, residents, business people and others who care about this neighborhood have the ability to decide what’s the news. It’s a social network, like Facebook, and centered on Silver Lake. If you care about Silver Lake, you can join now.
How Does it Work?
As with other social networks, each member creates his or her own individual page. You can submit an event at Silver Lake Library or the dog park, rave about your favorite flavor at Pazzo Gelato, post a video of a performance at Sunset Triangle, or whatever information is near and dear to you in this great neighborhood of ours.
Content from those pages, as well as Silver Lake-related information from other blogs, news sites and community groups will be featured on the main SilverLakeOnline.com page as well.
Think of it as an online hub for all things Silver Lake. Instead of having to go to individual sites to get information about Silver Lake, we are gathering it for you, and with you.
Why Get Involved?
While you share, educate and inform, you will also learn: updates about draining the lake, histories of Silverlake people and places, and you'll discover any number of other notable eccentricities that make this place where you live, work or play lovable, unique and hip.
This process creates informed citizens, which is one step closer to active citizens.
Here in Silver Lake, our diverse voices have at least one thing in common — we care about our community. By forming a cooperative, our united voice is more accurate, more current and more representative than just one individual.
That's the power of community.
Welcome to Silver Lake’s online community. Welcome to Silver Lake Star.
Who Started Silver Lake Star?
The Silver Lake Star was begun by Eddie North-Hager and Betsy McClellan Hall. Eddie is a journalist and social media guru. Betsy grew up in Silver Lake, and has worked in the community for five years, getting to know many of the people, businesses and organizations.
We share a vision for what a community-centered social network can be, a passion for civic engagement, a desire to see our respective neighborhoods thrive... and a sense of fun and adventure as we get to explore and expose people to our communities, both online and off. We welcome you on this journey with us.
