Hamline Midway Annual Garage Sale scheduled May 6

By MELISSA CORTES, Community Organizer

Registration is now open for the annual Hamline Midway Neighborhood Garage Sale on Sat., May 6, from 8am-3pm. Visit www.hamlinemidway.org/garagesale to register your sale now. A garage sale is a great way to meet new neighbors, reduce waste, and support the community economy. With more than 50 participating sales across the neighborhood in 2016, we’re looking to have an even bigger impact this year.

There will be a $10 fee for participating sales to help with the expense of printing flyers, sale maps, and signs, as well as other advertisements. If you live within the Hamline Midway boundaries, start clearing out your closets and collecting your items for this year’s sale. Want even a better turnout for your sale? Invite your neighbors to organize a sale alongside your to make an attractive cluster on the sale map.

Visit our website for helpful tricks and tips for organizing a successful sale. You can also register your sale and pay online while you’re there. Feel free to contact us with your questions and for more information at garagesale@hamlinemidway.org.

Transportation Committee seeking members
Hamline Midway’s Transportation Committee is seeking residents, business owners, or interested individuals interested in transportation-related issues. This committee gathers to provide information to the community and to gather feedback from the community on transportation-related issues.

Some of the major focuses of this committee have largely been successfully working with the City and County to improve pedestrian safety along major corridors.

Many of the current members are advocates for biking, transit, working on creating access with persons living with mobility issues.

Are you passionate about working on other transportation-related issues? Join the committee and make changes in your neighborhood!

Fence weaving
Hamline Elementary is set to begin its process for a fence weaving project this fall with a theme of “Weaving Community.” Alongside the artist, Denise Tennen, the design will be created by the students of Hamline Elementary and installed in partnership with the community. More details will come about the project as the process begins taking shape this Spring.
