Then we need your help… Friday night, October 5th, the Kingfield Neighborhood Association, with support from the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, will have a free family bon(ding) fire at MLK Park, complete with s’mores (that’s where you come in) and warm apple cider. We are looking for 4-6 adults to volunteer to help kids coordinate the s’mores making materials, from 6-9pm. Please send us an e-mail if you can help: info@Kingfield.org
Unfortunately, the annual MLK Park Ice Cream Social is being cancelled. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s policy requires that facilities close if the heat index rises to a level that does not allow people to be able to cool down in non-air conditioned facilities. We hope the event is rescheduled, but do not have any information at this time. In the meantime, please stay hydrated!!
We hope that neighbors have all received this in your mailbox already, but if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet our summer edition is now online here!
