Dining Out For Life, Thursday, April 24th All Day at Various Restaurants!
Now in its 20th year, Dining Out For Life raises money for The Aliveness Project—an organization that serves Minnesotans living with HIV/AIDS. It’s simple—you eat at a participating restaurant, and a percentage of that day’s sales benefit The Aliveness Project. Look for Dining Out For Life Ambassadors in red aprons to welcome and thank you (and give you red “I ATE” stickers!) Reservations are strongly recommended—especially for dinner.

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 email@example.com 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

Thursday March 27, 6-8 PM at The Lowbrow, 4244 Nicollet
The Lowbrow has paired up with Finnegans and Full Cycle on the last Thursday of the month to let neighbors know about these great nonprofits and their missions!
Finnegans Inc., owns the beer brand and is a for profit S Corporation that pays the bills and salaries and then donates all the profits to the Finnegans Community Fund, a 501©3 non-profit. Over 98% of the funds that land in the Finnegans Community Fund are distributed to our non-profit partners to support hunger alleviation in each state where our product is sold. In Minnesota, profits go to support the Emergency Foodshelf Network’s Harvest for the Hungry program.
Full Cycle is a non-profit bicycle shop offering quality, refurbished, brand name bikes for sale. They also have a mission to connect with young people experiencing homelessness that are 16-23 years of age. Full Cycle offers six-month paid internships in the bike shop, free bikes by appointment, a youth specific food shelf, and access to Street Outreach workers that can provide an access to resources.
Drop into The Lowbrow this Thursday, meet representatives from both organizations, and Finnegans will even pour you one of their own, on the house, for sitting and chatting with them!
