Board of Directors Election
No Pie Charts – Only Pies Annual General Membership Meeting
April 24, 2018 – Minnehaha Academy South Campus, 5:30 – 8:30pm


Joining the LCC Board of Directors is an excellent opportunity to actively participate in the decision-making and leadership of the community.  Board members meet monthly to review funding requests, respond to emerging needs of the community and plan for future events, activities and programs.   Board members are also required to attend at least one committee meeting per month and to participate in LCC sponsored events.

All levels of experience are welcomed.  You need only an interest in the community, to live in the Longfellow, Cooper, Howe or Hiawatha neighborhood and a commitment to participate in meetings a few hours a month.

To run for a seat on the LCC Board of Directors you need to be present at the April 24th General Membership meeting.  You can have a friend or neighbor nominate you or you can simply nominate yourself.

LCC welcomes diversity and encourages people from all walks of life to join our board.  When the full spectrum of the community is represented through leadership, our neighborhood reaps the benefit.

There are 13 open seats on the Board.  Anyone interested in more information about the LCC Board should contact LCC Executive Director Melanie Majors either by phone at (612) 722-4529 ext. 14 or via email at or visit our website at to view the open seats, their related terms, and board job descriptions.

Announcing the 2018 Spring River Gorge Birding Hike

American-Goldfinch-300x184Spring begins with sights and songs of our returning feathered friends! Join local birding experts Dave Zumeta and Lee Pfannmuller to look for migrating and returning spring birds along the Mississippi River Gorge on Saturday, May 5, 7:00-10:00 am. We can sometimes find over 50 species during our annual spring hike in the Mississippi Flyway. Over 170 species have been observed in this area, and the best time to see and hear them is May!

Rose-breasted-Grosbeak-300x196Novices and experienced birders all welcome. Bring your binoculars (or let us know you need a pair) and a water bottle. Wear sturdy shoes for hiking the river’s bluffs and banks

The hike is free, but registration is required as the number of participants is limited. Each individual  may register up to three (3) additional people. Registration will open Monday, April 2nd and will close when capacity is reached. After registration is closed, you will have the option to sign-up for a waiting list.
