Food Drive Benefiting Joyce Uptown Food Shelf

On August 14-16, Camp MSP, a service camp held at Lake Harriet UMC, will be seeking donations to support one of our local food shelves.  Donations often drop to dangerously low levels during the vacation season, so our 5th, 6th & 7th grade campers would like to work with you to build up Joyce Uptown Food Shelf’s reserves.  On the afternoon of Tuesday, August 14th, small groups of campers will be canvasing the Fulton neighborhood to leave paper bags by your front door.  If you would like to participate, please fill the bag with your donations and place it on your front stoop the following day (Aug 15th). We will send our small groups out to pick them up that afternoon, rain or shine, no door knocking needed!  Thank you for supporting this service for the hungry people in our city.

 If you have questions, please e-mail Eleanor Christiansen.

2012 B.L.E.N.D. Awards

We are pleased to announce the 2012 B.L.E.N.D. Awards! We will be accepting entries from all of Minneapolis again this year.   

The B.L.E.N.D. Award encourages and rewards builders, architects, and home owners to blend newly remodeled or constructed homes and businesses into the fabric of Minneapolis neighborhoods. A jury of industry professionals and neighborhood residents will select projects for recognition awards.  Eligible projects include new buildings, renovation or additions to existing buildings, and landscape projects that have been completed since July 1, 2007; projects must be located within the boundaries of the City of Minneapolis.     

NEW THIS YEAR! In partnership with Linden Hills Power and Light (LHP&L) we are creating a new category of award: The E.CO. B.L.E.N.D Award (Ecologically Conscience Buildings and Landscapes Enhancing the Neighborhood through Design). We would like to recognize that in addition to creating buildings and landscapes that respect the neighborhood, projects can be designed to respect our planet as well.
