Hamline Midway Coalition News, April 2019

Posted on 08 April 2019 by Calvin

Renters Voice Summit
Ward 4 Renters Voice Summit, Apr. 18, 6:30-8pm; Room 111 Anderson Center at Hamline University
Renters now make up over 50% of our city and deserve representation at every level of government and in our neighborhood processes.
Toward this end, we’re partnering with our District Councils to help renters get engaged, learn more about our rights and make an impact in St. Paul. Learn about resources, meet Ward 4 and District Council staff, meet your neighbors and find new ways to make your voice heard. While this event has a focused topic, it’s open to all and all are welcome! Please feel free to attend and share!

April showers bring… Citywide Spring Cleanup
On Apr. 27, Hamline Midway Coalition, in partnership with Friends of Hamline Park, will be hosting a Citywide Neighborhood Cleanup 9-11:30am at Hamline Park located at 1564 Lafond Ave. This c.lean-up is part of the larger annual, citywide cleanup initiative in the City. There will be a Storm Drain cleanup demonstration and cleanup in areas surrounding the park. All the supplies needed for clean-up will be provided on the day of—including donuts and coffee to kick start the day. All ages and abilities are welcomed.

Garage Sale Weekend
Mark your calendars and start planning for the annual Hamline Midway Neighborhood Garage Sale on May 3-5. Garage sales are a great way to meet new neighbors, reduce waste, and support the community economy.

Since 2015 we’ve had over 80 participating sales across the neighborhood and hope to keep growing our participation every year! 2018 was a success so we will continue with Garage Sale Weekend! This year’s fee will increase to $12 per address of sale. With enough participation, this fee pays for the advertisements, communications, and processing fees associated with this event.

Hours for the sale are Fri., May 3, 3-8pm; Sat., May 4, 8am-3pm, and Sun., May 5, 8am-3pm.
