Families need babysitter and Babysitters need jobs. And if it really snows 12 inches today and school gets cancelled again you are really going to need to get out of the house this weekend!!
SO…if you live in or near Kingfield neighborhood, come to the 2nd Babysitters and Families Speed-dating Event at MLK Park 4055 Nicollet Ave. South! Babysitters and families will meet each other for 5 or so minutes (depending on how many people we have).
Babysitters: Bring 20 copies of a flyer about yourself including name, number, email, available days & times, and your rate. You can be as creative in sharing anything else on your flyer as you like
Families: Feel free to bring your kids! (Please note the meeting following this one related to the design of the new playground at this park HAS been cancelled by the Park Board, in case you were planning on staying for it.)
Interested but can’t come, contact: email@example.com
Note: KFNA is hosting this event for families and babysitters. We make no guarantees about quality or fit. — at Martin Luther King Recreation Center.
Due to predicted poor weather conditions, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park Playground meeting scheduled for tonight (February 20) has been canceled by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. More details will follow regarding a new meeting date and opportunities to start reviewing the playground equipment proposals online and at the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park.
Earlier today (Tuesday, Feb 18), CenterPoint Energy determined that the gas pressure in a section of their pipeline along Grand Avenue in south Minneapolis dropped to a level that may have caused the pilot lights on some customer owned equipment to go out. The pressure has since been restored to proper levels. CenterPoint Energy has service crews in the area going door-to-door to check pilot lights and perform a safety check in each home or residence. At this time the situation appears to be isolated to an area along Grand Ave between 36th – 40th Street; although crews checked pressures as far south as 48th street to ensure the entire system was operating correctly.
CenterPoint Energy will relight the equipment pilot lights of residents that experienced low gas pressure in their area. In the event that no one is home to let the crew in, they will work with an authorized locksmith and a City of Minneapolis police officer, to access and enter the property to ensure the equipment is relit, given the cold weather that is anticipated tonight and over the next few days.
If you have questions or would like to call to get your pilot light relit, they can be reached at 612-333-6466.
Today is Monday, February 17, 2014 and Minneapolis has declared a Snow Emergency. Parking restrictions begin at 9 p.m. tonight.
