El grupo de Latinas de Lyndale en Liderazgo ha iniciado su nuevo curso. Este año presenta un grupo lleno de posibilidades y habilidades de ser lideres. Así que quiero tomar este momento para presentarle a unas de estas mujeres del vecindario - Gloria, Bernardina y Eulalia.
Gloria es madre de dos niñas y tiene dos trabajos. Le gusta estar con ellas e ir a caminar con su perro. Viene de Ecuador y ha pasado bastante tiempo ya como residente de Lyndale.
There we were at the Neighborhoods USA conference. LNA Board member Eric Perich and I were up front with all of the other finalists, standing in front of an entire conference room full of people involved in neighborhoods from across the country, waiting to find out if we were going to be the Neighborhood of the Year.
Just as all the finalists in our category were getting settled in up front, looking around at each other trying to figure out what was next, we heard our name called, much earlier than we wanted to - which meant we didn’t win and were just a finalist this year.
If you’ve been wondering why all of the utility boxes in Lyndale are still as plain and ugly today as they were last summer or where all of the beautiful box wraps that we proposed are? Don’t despair. We haven’t given up or forgotten all of the great stories you told us last summer.
We’ve been hard at work on the project since our last gathering this past fall on taking the Curiosities of Lyndale from idea, to you, to completion. It’s just been harder than we thought. When we were planning the project, we knew the temperature would need to be over 50 degrees to install the box wraps, what we didn’t count on was that winter would stretch into spring and then into the beginning of summer.

Join us for the Lyndale Neighborhood’s Association (LNA) Annual Meeting on Monday, June 24th at Painter Park. The Annual Meeting is a great chance for you to hear about everything LNA has been up to this past year and see what is ahead for next year.
At the meeting we will be presenting Luther Krueger and Brenda Sauer with this year’s Lyndale Community Service Award. Luther is one of the founders of the LNA’s Crime and Drug Committee, the Lyndale Walkers, and a leader on helping to make the neighborhood safe for over 20 years.
This is the third year of Open Streets MPLS. It began in 2011 with over two miles of South Lyndale Avenue being converted from a car-oriented environment to a people-centered place. Open Streets MPLS provides an exciting opportunity for residents to enjoy streets as public space and experience their neighborhood in a whole new way. During Open Streets, a street full of people, families, art and activity brings a new sense of vibrancy and conviviality to our major street corridors.
When I met with ESL volunteer Yusuf Moede during the morning class last week he had on a beautiful green, purple, and white batik shirt. Batik is a wax resist dying technique involving numerous dips in different color dyes until ultimately, the wax is melted off exposing a beautiful and multi-layered pattern. After talking with Yusuf for awhile, his batik shirt seemed to become a metaphor for the journey that brought him to the Lyndale ESL program.
You can see a collection of paintings by local artist Marita Bujold on display at the Lyndale Community Gallery (3537 Nicollet Ave) through the end of June. The paintings are being shown as part of LNA's partnership with Regla De Oro gallery. The gallery is open to the public during regular business hours or by appointment.
