District 10

Reprising Blizzard Breakfast

There was no snow in early February when District 10 held its second annual Blizzard Breakfast at the North Dale Recreation Center.

The mild winter put a kibosh on skating and snowshoeing, but there was still plenty of fun to be had for more than 400 people who attended the event, said District 10 executive director Shevek McKee.

“Thanks to the volunteers from Bethel Lutheran who provided the titular pancake breakfast, our own D10 Neighborhood Relations’ volunteers and leaders, all of our local makers, and the wonderful staff at North Dale Rec,” he said.

If you attended and had any feedback, or want to be more involved in future events, please email organizer@district10comopark.org.

The next District 10 community event is the April 20 Regional Parks Cleanup Day at the Como Pavilion. For further information, check out District10ComoPark.org/Events.
