Projector needed for Movie Night

Does anyone have access to a projector that we could borrow for movie night (Fri, Sep 7th)?  Our contact for the projector recently switched jobs and no longer has access.  We need a projector that we can hook up to a laptop or dvd player with a sound system.  If anyone has access and is willing to help please contact Lisa at or Mark at

Volunteers Needed!

Do you enjoy spending time with your neighbors?  Do you like the events put on the by neighborhood?  We need your help!!!

A special thanks to our awesome neighbors (Kallie, Melinda, Amy, and Emily) who have stepped up!  We have the grill for movie night and 3 of the 4 signs covered.

We would still like one more volunteer to adopt a sign.  This person would be in charge of storing, lettering and moving a sign for neighborhood events.  A week or two before the event we would e-mail you with what needs to be placed on the sign and give you target dates for getting the sign up and down from your assigned place in the neighborhood.  Please consider volunteering to be one of our "sign people"!

If you can help please contact Lisa at or 651-646-2658.  

Upcoming events:
Friday, Sept 7th: Potluck grill night.  Around 6pm until 7:30 or so.  Bring your own meat and a dish to share.  Plates, forks, napkins, and condiments will be provided.
Friday, Sept 7th: Movie night at Valjean Park.  Movie TBA.  Will begin at dark (8pm or a bit later).
Thursday, Sept 27th (tentative): Evening golf outing at Tanner's Brook.  Detail TBD.
Friday, Oct 5th (tentative): Wine tasting in Pratt cul-de-sac.  Details TBD.
