Location: basement of the Assembly of God church building on the corner of 712 17th Ave S (on 7th St).
“Wouldn’t it be nice if we all got together to think up ideas for our neighborhood?” Lake George Neighborhood does this every year. Here’s your chance—Monday night, March 29, in the Assembly of God church basement. Dinner of hearty soup and salad will be provided at 5:30, with the meeting starting at 6pm. Find out what is happening, and join one of the conversations: talk about neighborhood issues with Officer John Justin, learn about “Eco-Teams,” or do more neighborhood planning with Parks director Scott Zlotnik and your neighbors.
We on the Steering Committee hope you like the new metal signs that the City helped us spread throughout our community, and that you have noticed the flowers our Beautification Committee planted by the Hill monument on Lake George. What’s next? If you can’t come to the meeting but want to work on projects like these, phone Judy Dorn 202-1779 or Suzanne Rodell 255-0930.
Here is another example of neighborhood public art spotted by Judy Dorn.
A big thanks to everyone who turned out for this morning’s neighborhood clean-up. People of all ages showed up. There appeared to be a good-sized group of Cub Scouts. We even had some folks from outside the neighborhood join us (thanks Apollo students!). My own bag of trash was about 80% beverage containers. This is a big problem nationwide.
I also noticed a number of “fire pits” in yards that had garbage in them. Two reminders:
- It is illegal to burn garbage in Minnesota. See this previous post for details.
- There is currently a total burning ban in St. Cloud. According to the City of St. Cloud Web site, “All Burning is suspended until further notice due to extreme fire conditions. This includes recreational burning.”
Judy Dorn sent along these examples of some locally-produced public art. Does anyone else out there have any other examples from the Lake George neighborhood?
