Weekly Roundup: January 3-9

Check out this week’s upcoming events in Greater Longfellow and Happy 2020!


Upcoming & Ongoing Events



ANNOUNCEMENTS 

Volunteers Needed! Help your neighbors age in place while also keeping Greater Longfellow sidewalks safe for everyone!  
The Longfellow Community Council (LCC) is gauging interest in a volunteer shoveling network to help elders and people with disabilities who are unable to keep up with snow removal on their own.  
In concept, LCC would work to connect volunteers with neighbors that request assistance based on proximity, who would then work out an arrangement between themselves.
if you are interested or have questions, please call or email LCC Program Manager, Justin Gaarder at: (612) 722-4529 Ext. 13 or justin@longfellow.org



The Neighborhood by the Falls is AVAILABLE!Click on the link:  https://squareup.com/market/longfellow-community-council/  and scroll down to the “Merchandise” and click on the image of the book (feel free to donate or buy any other awesome merch while you’re at it!) and choose how many you want. Then pick up at the LCC offices. WE DON’T HAVE SHIPPING CAPABILITIES–Sorry.

This exhibit will incorporate the video documentation of Teddy Grimes, photography of Kimani Beard and Ephraim Eusebio, and the art of many of the graffiti and mural artists who have graced the Modus Locus Art Garden walls around the Summer Cypher space adjacent to the Modus Locus art gallery. This month-long exhibit will incorporate gatherings throughout the month and will culminate with a B-boy/ B-girl battle  on Sat February 1, 2020.
