June 20, 6-9 PM at a local porch near you!
For anyone new to the neighborhood or has been asleep the past few years and is wondering, “What the heck is PorchFest?” PorchFest is an evening of community all wrapped up in the sounds of summer. On this single summer evening, Kingfield musicians will perform acoustic music outdoors at their respective homes, or at neighbor’s porch or yard, while others stroll through the neighborhood, enjoying the sounds. This event regularly features over 50 musical performances on about 3 dozen Kingfield stages.
Have questions? Just contact KFNA Executive Director Sarah Linnes-Robinson at email@example.com.
Welcome Spring and elect a new Board of Directors to your neighborhood nonprofit, the Kingfield Neighborhood Association (KFNA,) at the Outdoor Oven! Pizza, annual organizational report, introduction of current volunteers, great community conversation, and more! Children welcome—plan to join us!
We are excited for new leadership, but thankful for those continuing their terms on the Kingfield Neighborhood Association board and super happy that Lisa Skrzeczkoski-Bzdusek has another year to serve!
As a public defender during the day Lisa stands up for the under-represented, and in her work with KFNA she likes to plan fun family activities that engage kids of all ages. She has been a leader of the both the Family Engagement Team and their First Saturday events as well as the MLK 4-H Council (hence a double meaning of the scales in her starter pack, balancing her career and her home life, as well as her volunteer commitments!)
Originally from Wisconsin, she also likes hiking, skiing, and swimming and has swam the Point La Point multiple times, be sure to ask her about open water swims in 60 degree water. She also enjoys good ol’ fashioned paperbacks with happy endings, hence Princess Bride in her starter pack. What’s a more feel good novel than that?!
The nine-week Little Kids soccer program at King Park starts June 19 at King Park but only if enough adults volunteer to staff the program. A minimum of 12-15 adults are needed for on-field parent coaching and to staff the registration/T-shirt table. Adults who volunteer are excused when they have a conflict but otherwise participate from 6:15-7:15 p.m. through Aug. 14. Training is provided; Spanish language skill is a plus.
To volunteer, contact Michael Vanderford (612-296-9647 or firstname.lastname@example.org) by the end of March.
