On 6/13/12 the KFNA Board approved joining the coalition or organizations, churches, synagogues, governmental bodies, and businesses opposing the two constitutional amendment questions on the November 2012 ballot.
The League of Women Voters Minneapolis is proud to be co-sponsoring this upcoming forum, because the make-up of a school board really influences efforts to eliminate the achievement gap. The League is sponsoring a Minneapolis School Board candidates pre-primary forum. It will be held Monday, August 6th, from 7:30-9 p.m. at Plymouth Congregational Church at the northwest corner of Franklin and Nicollet Avenues. The Achievement Gap Committee is a co-sponsor for the event, along with the African American Leadership Forum, Education Equity Organizing Collaborative, Empowering Educators for Equity, and MinnCAN.
Two seats have primaries, two do not. All candidates have been invited. They are:
At Large Candidates: Carla Bates, Janice Mae Harmon, Doug Mann, and Willis G. Trueblood

(District 4 stretches roughly from the city’s border on the west to I-35W on the east, and from Lake Street on the south to Olson Memorial Highway on the north.

District 2 Candidate (unopposed): Kim Ellison

Congratulations to Coach Greg Luker-Green and the 10U Open Baseball Team from ML King Park for their 2012 MPRB Tournament Championship winning season!
Attendees enjoyed a 4-course meal made with ingredients grown in our community gardens and supplemented by vendors at the Kingfield Farmers Market! Dinner was prepared and served by KFNA’s Pleasant Garden Coordinator, Suzie Lillyblad, along with other garden volunteers and was supported by Braucher’s Sunshine Harvest Farm + Love Tree Farm + Singing Hills Goat Farm. See photos of the event here! This successful first time fundraiser raised money to further the community garden gourp’s mission of connecting gardens and gardeners in Kingfield!
