Join us for this year’s Seward Garden Tour and Tea Party! The Tour will run from 6-8pm on June 25th, rain or shine. There will be an after party at 8pm with door prizes, snacks and drinks!

A raingarden is a shallow depression that is designed to capture rainwater and allow it to soak into the ground within a 24-48 hour period. SNG Environment Committee welcomes you to attend a workshop about planning and installing your own raingarden! This FREE workshop by Metro Blooms is scheduled for Monday, June 22 from 6:30-8:00pm at Matthews Center. More than 7,000 people have attended Metro Blooms Raingarden Workshops, come and see what all the hype is about!

Do you plan on going for some springtime bike rides?
Keep in mind that thousands of bikes are stolen in Minneapolis every year. Though many are recovered, most lack identification and are never returned to their owners.
Find out how to register your bike and help ensure that if yours if ever lost or stolen, it can be returned to you here.

Seward Spread Joy Fund: Winner Announcement
The Seward Spread Joy Fund is a grant program made possible by an anonymous donor and administrated by the Seward Neighborhood Group. Its intention is to provide up to $1,000 every year to allow one Seward resident to have an experience that benefits them or the neighborhood that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford. Applicants must not receive physical gain from the grant, they must have lived in Seward for at least three years, and they must make a report of their experience.
At the Seward Neighborhood Group Board meeting in January, qualifying applications for the Seward Spread Joy Fund were placed in a jar to be chosen at random. This year, the winner is Seward’s own Sonja Casey!
Sonja Casey will use the support she received from the Seward Spread Joy Fund to travel as a volunteer Spanish/English interpreter to Quiroga, Bolivia this March. She will be traveling with a non-profit organization MELA (Medical Educators for Latin America) and will be working to open a health center with another non-profit Mano a Mano. Mano a Mano is a non-profit that opens clinics in rural Bolivia to serve their communities.
During this trip, Sonja plans to travel to Peru to explore Machu Picchu and climb the Inca trail with a few colleagues. Congratulations Sonja! We look forward to hearing about your experience!
Stay tuned for more information about the Seward Spread Joy Fund! Next year’s winners will be picked at SNG’s Annual Meeting in November.
This year’s King’s Fair is scheduled for Saturday, September 19th and will be bigger and better than ever before! SNG is forming a planning committee for this event. If you are interested, please call Kerry at 612-877-1928 or email at email@example.com.
