Asking you to share your ideas, thoughts, and aspirations for the creation of a community benefits fund. 

Allianz Field represents an opportunity for our community to maximize new investment for greater equity and growth in our city. In support of this goal, the Saint Paul City Council passed Resolution 16-1407 on August 19, 2016, “Committing to Community Benefits at the Snelling-Midway Redevelopment Site”, which included the creation of a task force to propose a community benefits fund. Per the resolution, the task force created includes representatives from the Union Park District Council, Hamline-Midway Coalition, RK Midway, Minnesota United, the City of Saint Paul and other stakeholders. The task force’s mission is to recommend who will contribute to the fund, how the fund will be governed, and how it will be used to address neighborhood issues arising from the stadium events and operations and future redevelopment at the Snelling-Midway Redevelopment Site, in addition to fostering the ongoing development of new and emerging community leaders.

Nancy Giguere leads this 5-week series of free classes (Nov 8 – Dec 13). Sitting in a chair or standing and using the chair for support, you’ll learn fundamentals of yoga postures and breathing, practice tension release, and begin building strength and flexibility.

Knitting Group – Mondays from 1 to 3 pm at Hamline Church United Methodist
Hamline Midway Elders provides the yarn and needles along with some light snacks. The group meets weekly throughout the year to work on projects, such as making shawls to be donated to a local hospice or blankets for a child care center. New participants are always welcome.

Reading Buddies – 1st & 3rd Wednesdays from 10:45 to 11:30 am at Hamline Elementary School
Our partnership with Hamline Elementary School is now in its 3rd school year. Third grade students from Ms. Lawson’s class enjoy reading to neighborhood elders so we’re hoping to recruit even more older adults to participate. No experience is necessary to becoming a Reading Buddy - just a desire to interact with children. And you don’t have to attend every session, just come when your schedule permits.

Seasonal Music with the North Suburban Chorus (comprised of older adults from the metro area).
