2022 Como Park honor roll recipients named
After receiving residents’ nominations, the District 10 Como Community Council Board at its February meeting named the following people to its 2022 Como Neighborhood Honor Roll:
Carol and Jim Kmiecik, Molly O’Rourke and Judy Johnson of the Midway Parkway Garden Club and Reene Jacobsen and Sandy Simpson, garden stewards of the Midway/Arona garden.
The honor roll annually recognizes everyday residents and organizations who make a sustained and lasting impact in their neighborhood. While the city of St. Paul has discontinued its official support of the honor roll program, District 10 continues to celebrate outstanding community members, whose names will be added to the permanent plaque in the District 10 office.
