Join us on Thursday, September 18th at Painter Park to say thank you to Roy Woodstrom who recently retired as the Community Librarian at Hosmer Library. Roy has been a long-term fixture in the community and a big reason for library’s success.
El martes 5 de agosto, otra vez, Minneapolis impuso el record con el número más grande de fiestas para la Noche Nacional del Convivir Afuera en todo el país. En Lyndale, los miembros comunitarios celebraron en todo el vecindario.
En las tres torres, alrededor de 500 personas pasaron por la fiesta para comer hamburguesas y saltar en el castillo de juego. La fiesta atrajo a vecinos de cuadras alrededor. En casi todas la cuadras que se podrían cerrar en Lyndale (no la Nicollet, la Blaisdell o la 1a Avenida), los vecinos cerraron su calle para compartir una comida y una buena conversación. Los vecinos se juntaron para celebrar en sus patios cuando no pudieron cerrar la calle.
As the Program Assistant for the Women’s Leadership Program, Teresa Saucedo works with the program facilitator to help explain information for the sessions to participants, assists in program activities, helps to shape the agendas, and is working up to facilitating more sessions. During a recent program session, Teresa led the discussion and shared her story, talking about an Aunt that inspired her to become more involved in civic life. Her Aunt’s engagement in politics and civic life provided a strong foundation for Teresa to become involved in the community.
Durante este último mes, Lyndale empezó a trabajar en la campaña de la Votación de Nicollet. La meta de este proyecto es aumentar a la cantidad de personas que votan en esta elección no presidencial de 57% al 65% en los vecindarios de Lyndale, Kingfield, Stevens Square y Whittier y además tener más de mil conversaciones con miembros comunitarios sobre que les importa en su vecindario. El proyecto se va a hacer con presencia en eventos comunitarios, registro de votantes, llamadas y treinta y dos tocados de puertas en los vecindarios.
Business Notes are short updates about what’s happening with Lyndale area businesses.

It is time to repot houseplants, increased light during spring and summer may have caused some of your plants to put on enough new growth that they require larger containers. The rule of thumb is to choose pots only one size bigger than the one they are in. Too large a pot increases the soil amount and it will stay wet longer and may make the roots suffer.
Pick a pot with a drain hole and cover the hole with a small rock or piece of broken pottery, this helps keep the soil in and allows excess water to drain out. Add fresh potting soil, transfer the plant-roots, soil and all into the pot-then gently firm more potting soil between the root ball and the sides of the container. If the soil is not pressed in, the water will run out and not soak the entire soil mass.
LNA has an incredible opportunity to be awarded support for a new community garden and Lyndale’s Food Share program through the Wedge’s WedgeShare program. Founded in 1997, the Wedge Board of Directors created the charitable giving program based on Cooperative principle #7, Concern for Community. Presently the Wedge makes WedgeShare grants in amounts up to but not exceeding $10,000 to select organizations that are working to create a sustainable future.
LNA is excited to invite you to the fourth annual Fall Fundraiser happening on Friday, September 26th from 6 – 9 pm at the Lyndale Community Center. Lyndale and its amazing community are reason enough to celebrate, add in a wine tasting, gourmet nibbles, an amazing silent and live auction, and you’ve got yourself a party! In addition to supporting the wonderful and inspiring work that happens here, the event is a chance to reconnect with neighbors, meet new people, and outbid someone for that perfect auction prize.
The past few weeks we’ve been having a lot of conversations around the office about what is community leadership and what it means to be a community leader. As you might imagine this is a pretty important topic for an organization whose whole reason for existence is about helping community members shape their neighborhood.
What is really interesting to me is how different people’s answers are when you ask them about community leadership. For a lot of people community leaders are people who are in positional leadership positions; these are people who are elected officials have leadership roles in local nonprofits, churches, schools, etc. that are based on the position they have.
