Around 7 p.m. on Easter in Kingfield’s Martin Luther King Park, a dog described as a pitbull/boxer mix tore away from its owner and went after a smaller papillon.
When the dust settled, the papillon was dead. But instead of cooperating with the papillon’s owner, the owner of the pitbull/boxer mix was “uncooperative” and left the scene.
BIGGEST NEED: Sign up at www.aliveness.org/ambassador to help welcome and thank diners, hand out the “I ATE” stickers and a chance to enter the prize drawing . We are still seeking Ambassadors for any of the three meal times at various Kingfield and S. Minneapolis participating restaurants.

The core of our King Park Little Kids Soccer Program is to have a cadre of “parent-coaches”, trained in the teaching games, available for leading on any of 8 to 10 Saturdays from mid-June to mid-August. You don’t have to be there all Saturdays, just the ones you are town. With approximately 15 parent-coaches total available, we have enough coaches available for any given session. Are you interested in supporting this program?
If so, Please send a note quickly to firstname.lastname@example.org with a “Yes for King Park Summer Soccer” in the memo line and KFNA will get you more information directly from the Volunteer Coordinator of this program. The program provides a training session (maybe two different option days this spring) in the games by Sheila McGill, the University of St. Thomas Women’s Soccer Coach, in late May or early June.
What is a Little Free Library? It’s a “take a book, return a book” gathering place where neighbors share their favorite literature and stories. In its most basic form, a Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.
Are you a host home to a little free library? If so, we would love to hear from you! We are working to plan a fun event to showcase all of the wonderful libraries in the Kingfield Neighborhood, and would be thrilled to include yours! Send your contact information to Cheryl@Kingfield.org
