King Park has joined with Bryant Square for a 11u Open (boys and girls) soccer team.  There is a coaching vacancy and we are in need of a replacement coach.  If you are interested please contact Brian Cornell at MLK Park by Tuesday Sept 6.  If the interested coach has age eligible children there is still time to add a couple of players to the team.  The team will be practicing mainly at Bryant Square Park.

The One Minneapolis One Read website has many tools you can use to participate in this year’s community read, including a discussion guide (pdf), event planning tips (pdf) and YWCA racial justice facilitators. The Racial justice facilitators can help guide your conversations and ask thought-provoking questions as your group reflects on the book and members’ own experiences. The YWCA will match a facilitator with your group for meaningful discussions in a safe environment.

One Minneapolis One Read is a community-driven effort with individuals, neighborhood groups, educators, businesses and nonprofits all coming together to make this a truly citywide read. The book is “Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past,” a book of vignettes Wilson created to honor the lives of her Dakota family. “Spirit Car” is available in paperback at local independent and chain bookstores, online booksellers and www.mhspress.org. It’s also available through Hennepin County Library and as an e-book. Get your tickets to join “Spirit Car” author Diane Wilson and Garrison Keillor for a discussion and dessert on Monday, Sept. 24. Tickets are available at www.ticketworks.com or 612-343-3390.
