District 10 reprises 2023

The District 10 Community Council thanks everyone who helped with work in serving the Como neighborhood in 2023.

By the numbers, District 10 published 52 Friday newsletters in 2023 and held 57 hybrid monthly board and committee meetings with nearly 600 attendees.

It also coordinated 20 community events that attracted more than 4,000 attendees.

“We’re pumped to invite everyone back in 2024 to these mostly annual events around the neighborhood,” said Shevek McKee, District 10 executive director. “We welcome you to get involved with us in 2024.”

District 10 monthly socials

The Como Community Council is putting down the gavel once a month for a social gathering. This agenda-free meet-up will vary in time and location, but will generally happen on the second Wednesday each month. For details, check the District 10 weekly newsletter or its website at District10ComoPark.org/D10Social.

Join Como Woodland Advisory Committee

The Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom is looking for four to five individuals to join its advisory committee.

Advisory committee members work with St. Paul Parks and Recreation staff to care for the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom, document the flora and fauna in the woodland and promote the woodland by offering educational tours.

The Advisory Committee meets roughly monthly throughout the year to take part in stewardship activities and to plan educational events.

Those interested or who have questions can contact Britt Forsberg at brittmforsberg@gmail.com.
