Sunday Summary – July 16, 2017

The streets.mn Summer Picnic was July 15. It was hot and there was the little problem with double booking of the shelter, but there was also food, fun and some fine conversation about the website, people’s places, and what’s happening in the world. We might have picked up a few new writers, too (you can write, […]

Sunday Summary – July 9, 2017

By the next Sunday Summary, the annual picnic will be over and I can summarize what you missed. Wouldn’t it be more fun to join us at The streets.mn Summer Picnic is July 15! (and the short, informal meeting with the board beforehand) than just read about it later?  A short holiday week means a smaller haul of […]

Extra space proliferates within the area for vehicles while the pedestrian and bicyclist are forced onto a small, cracked sidewalk or into the street dodging parked cars.
