Reservations seriously recommended! KFNA usually draws 30-50 people at these bi-annual events, and that only 6 have registered. We need a lot more reservations to make the event sustainable for KFNA and Jason’s pizza truck!
September 22, 6-8 PM at Solomon’s Porch, 100 West 46th Street
Homebasers, plan to join us Monday evening, September 22, 6-8 PM, at Solomon’s Porch, 100 West 46th Street, to mingle, market, and celebrate the success of one of our own, as well as to crack a champagne bottle against the side of the church for inaugural launching of a new Kingfield co-work space! Kingfield neighbor, Jason Montgomery, attended the first Kingfield Homebased event in January 2013, and he received such resounding support for his idea to build a pizza oven truck that he felt both inspired and supported in following his dream. By July 2014, Tru Pizza was launched!
Come share a slice at this special Kingfield Homebased Event; cost for Kingfield folks is $10 per person and $15 for folks from adjoining neighborhoods. Beer and wine available. Register and pay here (scroll down and look on the left-hand side of the page); plus, Join the Facebook event to share with your friends and show them you are going!

This fall, Kingfield Neighborhood Association is partnering with Whittier, Lyndale and Stevens Square neighborhoods on a project called Nicollet Votes. The goal of the project is to get people excited to vote and register un-registered voters. We’re doing it because in past non-presidential elections like this upcoming one, up to 7,000 voters in our neighborhoods haven’t made it to the polls.
If Voter Education & Registration is an issue that interests you, we would love to have you join us for any event over the next 8 weeks. We doorknock in each of the four neighborhoods once per week; the next date in Kingfield is tonight, Sept 15, from 6- 8 PM. To sign-up for this date or view future dates visit this link, or contact Sarah Linnes-Robinson at email@example.com .
This project is a great opportunity for us to get to know our neighbors and have some important conversations with them about our democracy, our values, and the kind of community we want to live.

We’re walking… and biking… and pushing strollers… and bringing the dog, while we help make Kingfield a safer neighborhood. Join the new Kingfield Block Walkers for exercise, camaraderie, and to be additional eyes and ears on our blocks. The Crime Prevention and Safety Committee will be hosting an orientation on Tuesday, September 16th at 7pm at MLK Park (4055 Nicollet Avenue South). Representatives of the Minneapolis Police Department will be there to talk about current crime patterns and to train volunteers on how to be a safe and effective block patrol. Many Minneapolis neighborhoods have had walking patrols for years, and people that volunteer love the opportunity to meet their neighbors and feel like they are making a difference in their community.
Need a babysitter in order to join us? We will have free childcare available if you send an e-mail to Cheryl@Kingfield.org ASAP! We need at least 5 kiddos to have the babysitters on hand.
Interested, but can’t make it to the orientation on 9/16? Please send an e-mail to Cheryl@Kingfield.org to make sure you don’t miss your chance to get involved!
