Open Streets Big Success!
Lyndale Ave was blocked off from 22nd to 42nd Streets for people to run, bike, skate or walk for the first annual Open Streets Event or also referred to as ciclovia which translates to "bike path" in Spanish. This free, fun, family and pet friendly event allowed people young and old to take to the streets while engaging with other residents and businesses.
On the corner of 41st Street, East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association's Community Building Committee provided supplies for kids to decorate their bikes. This was followed by a bike parade and a blessing of the bikes ceremony performed by Rev Beth Warpmaeker of Bethlehem Lutheran Church. The kids dismounted their bikes long enough to create chalk art in the streets and have their face painted while enjoying some refreshments. This turned out to be a fun event for all.
Other highlights along the route included a train of interconnected recumbent trikes, a full musical ban on a bike and a few hundred people doing yoga!
A big thank you to the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition for organizing this big event and making it happen!

Lake Harriet Veterinary Blood Drive
One Minneapolis One Read Event
This event will occur Monday, October 24, 2011, 7:00 - 8:30 pm at the Theodore Wirth House, 3954 Bryant Ave S.
Using Michele Norris' book as a springboard, we will explore the themes of inclusion and exclusion: What events in the book resonate with our own experience? What is it like growing up as the Other? What does tolerance mean in a supposed post-racial age? Does the cost of secrecy sometimes outweigh the gift of silence? Does the author offer any insights into our silence around issues of race and ethnicity?
To assist in the discussion we will be joined by Whitney Harris, Executive Director, Diversity and Multiculturalism, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.
Reservations are required. Please RSVP to Donovan Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Time: 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Place: Intersection of Fremont Ave S & W 42nd St
Guide: Peter Sussman
Did you know that Col. Wm. S. King envisioned that his 1870's countryside estate, Lyndale Farm, would one day be transformed into a public park and an unrivaled residential setting at Lake Harriet. On this tour you will visit Lyndale Park and the adjoining section of stately residences just east of Lake Harriet - developments which were finally realized in the early 1900's.

Nearby Fremont Avenue and East Harriet Boulevard appear a world apart, representing to this day some of the most gracious blocks of residences in Minneapolis.
The Walking Tours are co-sponsored by the Linden Hills History Study Group and the East Harriet Farmstead Neighborhood Association.
