Neighborhood News

Thanks to everyone who has donated to the Lyndale Bike Patrol. So far, LNA has received $3,398, with a few checks still coming in. Remember the more funds donated, the more hours of bike officers on the street.

The City of Minneapolis Art in Public Places program is commissioning public artworks to be integrated into the newly reconstructed ten block area along Nicollet Avenue.

Artists Ben Janssens and Marjorie Pitz have been working with a public art committee consisting of neighborhood and business representatives to develop draft design concepts, including gateway sculptures at 31st, 35th and 40th streets, as well as sculptural seating and bike racks at other locations.

The Hosmer World Music Series is pleased to announce our concert schedule June.  The Hosmer Concert Series is a partnership between LNA, Hosmer Library and KFAI Radio. For more information, contact Roy Woodstrom at (952) 847-2900.

Hosmer Library Concerts
All concerts are free of charge and held at the Hosmer Library, 347 E 36th St. on Saturdays at 2:00 pm, unless otherwise noted.

Do you ever have accidental abounding produce?

Do you have space to expand your garden?

Do you have space that could be a garden, but no desire to cultivate vegetables?

This year Lyndale’s Environment Committee will be growing our Food Share program. Through this program, we are redistributing vegetables grown in the neighborhood to folks who don’t have the opportunity to grow their own. We also would like to connect community members with the desire to plant to people who have extra space to plant.

The meeting was on Wednesday, May 7th, at the Lyndale Community Center from 6:30 to 8:00pm.

We are going to have a doorbell workshop on Saturday, May 31st at 10:00am. This was the day and time that will work best for Tim, who will be leading the demonstration. Erick & Taylor volunteered to have the workshop at their house, since they need a new doorbell. Ten people should be about the right number, people can sign up on a first come first served basis.

At the May 13th meeting Mark Hinds gave us information about the Ready to Work! A Job Seeker’s Workshop that LNA is organizing. The workshop is on Tuesday, May 20th from 6:00 to 7:30pm at Zion Church (128 W 33rd Street). The purpose is to provide opportunities for community members to improve their job search skills.

At the workshop attendees will have the opportunity to talk with employers and learn about interviewing practices, get tips on completing applications, and resume writing.  People will also have an opportunity to learn about community resources. This workshop is open to all community members young or old and there will be translation available in Spanish and Somali.

Join your neighborhood on Saturday, June 14th from 5:00-8:30 pm for Lyndale's annual Fish Fest at the Garfield Aquarium (33rd and Garfield). At this year's Fish Fest, we'll have Fish Tacos, live music from the Tom Hunter Blues Band, and lots of great activities.

This year will be a special celebration, because Xcel Energy recentenly sold the building and the person who is buying it is planning on converting it to a single family home.  So next year's event may be a very different celebration.

The Chair opened at 36th and Bryant in 2005 with just the two of us and a chair.  We grew out of our space there and decided to move to a larger location in June of 2013.  We currently have nine stylists and three front desk staff.  While we really miss our corner on Bryant, we are very happy to have our own space on Lyndale. 

The building was beginning to be a little neglected and had some questionable activities taking place so we were very excited to be able to get in here and clean things up.  We still have some work to do but it will be an ongoing process and a labor of love. 

The Lyndale neighborhood is very fortunate to have space for people to garden. The Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA) owns four garden lots and has another area we are hoping to turn into another community garden.

The garden at 31st and Pillsbury is rented and maintained by The Youth Farm. They have gardened there for many years. Teaching youth the importance of growing and harvesting nutritional fruits and vegetables. The produce is used by the program and distributed to participants' families.

The Lyndale Walkers had their 22nd Walk-A-Thon Kick-off potluck party on Sunday, May 4th. We gathered at the residence of Luther and Jo Krueger, Mike hauled over his big BBQ grill and grilled up some delicious ribs and brauts. People brought dishes to share and we had a tasty meal while we got caught up on the latest news and talked about the history and purpose of the Lyndale Walkers.

We were happy to have a couple people that were interested in joining the Lyndale Walkers attend the kick-off and the little kids had a lot of fun.
