Happy New Year
The District 10 Community Council is giving thanks to everyone who participated in our work in the Como neighborhood in 2022.
By the numbers, in 2022 District 10 published 51 Friday newsletters, held 65 monthly board and committee meetings with nearly 700 attendees, successfully transitioning to hybrid meetings the second half of the year. We coordinated 34 community events where we counted approximately 2,700 attendees!
Many of these events were new for us in 2022, and we’re pumped to invite everyone back as these become annual events around the neighborhood.
Como Blizzard Breakfast coming
Join St. Paul Parks and Recreation and the Como Community Council for a pancake breakfast and winter activities event from 10 a.m. to noon, Feb. 4, at the at North Dale Recreation Center, 1414 St. Albans St. N.

In case of adverse weather, fun activities will be held only indoors.
More details will be posted closer to the event.
