Fulton Festival Silent Auction

Fulton Fall Festival Silent Auction

Saturday, Sept. 13
11 a.m.-3 p.m.
Pershing Park

Last year more than 1,500 Fulton residents took part in the Annual Fulton Fall Festival to celebrate our community. Together, we enjoyed live music, great food, tons of activities for the kiddos and a silent auction filled with AWESOME items — all of which reflect the richness of our unique neighborhood and local businesses. The silent auction is a great way to showcase what Fulton and the community at large have to offer while raising money for important projects that enhance our neighborhood.

Please help us continue the tradition!

Support our 2014 Fulton Festival Silent Auction by contributing an item, service, event tickets, night at a hotel/cabin, gift certificates, etc. Click here for more information and to learn how to donate.

City in Need of Election Judges

Are you interested in serving as an election judge, or do you know someone who is? Election judges are essential to a successful Election Day. They are the officials that staff local polling places, administer election procedures, and ensure that the rights of voters are protected on Election Day. Serving as an election judge provides an opportunity to learn about the elections process and is a great service to our community.
 
Although hundreds of people are already signed up to be election judges, Minneapolis is still in need of several hundredmore judges to staff up for Election Day. Election judges open and close the polls, register and sign in voters, distribute and collect ballots, operate voting equipment, and record and certify vote totals.
 
To be an election judge, you must be:
 
  • Eligible to vote in Minnesota.
  • Willing to attend a two-hour training class
  • Able to work either a full day (6 a.m. – 9 p.m.) or a part-time shift (6 a.m. – 2 p.m. or 2 p.m. – 9 p.m.) on Tuesday, Nov. 5.

Lynnhurst/Fulton Garage Sales

Many residents have expressed interest in starting a neighborhood-wide garage sale similar to Linden Hills.  These type of group sales draw customers into the area because they can visit many quality sales in a small geographic area. However, it can be difficult to get enough families to commit to hosting a sale to make it worthwhile.  Luckily, our neighbors in Lynnhurst have graciously invited Fulton residents to join in their well-established sale on Sat., Sept. 21.  Having two neighborhoods join together will offer a fabulous opportunity to reach out well beyond our communities.  Please save the date for Sept. 21 for buying or selling!    

A $5 registration fee will include a group ad in the Star Tribune and your listing on sale maps. If you would like to host a sale, mail registration and money (checks made payable to Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association) to:

Mary Vander Leest                                  

4653 Aldrich Ave S

Minneapolis, MN 55419

Registration must include:

·    Your name and phone number (it won’t be published, but just in case there are questions)

·    Address of the sale

·    Location of the sale: Front, Back, Alley or Driveway

·    In five words or less, a description of your sale (e.g. kids gear, general household, sporting goods, etc.)     

Deadline to register:  Sept. 10

Date of Sale: Sat., Sept. 21, 9 a.m.-4p.m.; rain or shine
