We’re planning more traveling meet-ups throughout the summer. Have an idea of where we should show up next?

We are also looking to set up larger forum meetings in the coming months. Got an idea for a topic?

Are you interested in setting up a block club in your area of our district?

Send your ideas, questions or interest to communityengagement@hamlinemidway.org.

Looking forward to meeting you IN community.

Environment Committee
The Environment Committee is working to help Hamline Midway households interested in learning how to reduce their waste. Currently, all household garbage is being incinerated; please check www.hamlinemidway.org/environment for other disposal options or contact environment@hamlinemidway.org.

The Hamline Midway Council will begin distributing compost bags and compost kitchen caddies on Mon., July 2. You may pick them up at our office on the ground level of the Hamline Midway Library, 1558 W. Minnehaha Ave. For any questions please contact melissa@hamlinemidway.org or swing by the office.

A fun fact the Environment Committee would like to share with you is that a group of wild rabbits is often called a fluffle. Stay vigilant in your yards this year!

Public Art mini-grants
The Midway Public Art Working Group (MPAWG) is allocating $1,000 for mini-grants of up to $250 to fund community-led public art projects in the Hamline Midway neighborhood. All projects must be completed by the end of 2018. Anyone is eligible to apply. Deadline is June 25.

To apply, please provide a detailed description of the project, along with plans to execute the project, and how the money will be spent, and email it to jonathan@midwaymurals.com. Applications can be sent in written, audio, or video formats, and in any language.
