First of all thank you to everyone that has made arrangements to be home for door painting and scheduled a time. The crew spends less time knocking and more time checking doors off the list- so thank you!

Today is National Night Out and your neighborhood surely has something planned — be it a potluck, bbq, bounce house for the kiddies, ice cream social, the possibilities are endless really! National Night Out was started as an annual campaign to foster community building and promote police-community partnerships. Often local police or firefighters stop and visit or even give safety demonstrations. We hope you all have a great night connecting with neighbors!
The crew is continuing to prep and paint the gable louvers and other misc. areas. We’ll soon post regarding the painting of your resident front doors. We’ll be completing in two phases— Phase I – Buildings north of 68th Avenue N ONLY. We’ll be painting doors on Friday and Saturday between the hours of 9am and 4pm. The crew will be knocking on your doors during this time and if you’re home, kindly open your door to be painted.

We are less than a month away from the Great Minnesota Get- Together and a list of 53 new drink options has been released. We all know that that fair may be know for all of the foodie options, mostly fried and many on a stick of course! Yet, it seems we’re becomming creative with beers, spritzers, seltzers, meads, mimosas, etc etc many of which have clever names- case in point the ‘Berry Manilow’ which is a lightly hoppy beer brewed with homemade lemonade and pureed raspberries from Utepils Brewing. Check it out here!
We are carrying on at Gleason with shutter painting and it seems the crew is pacing about two to three buildings per day. Thanks!
