New mural at Murphy Riggings
The District 12 Community Council Transportation Committee celebrated the placemaking projects that have been happening this past spring on Territorial Road with a ribbon cutting ceremony, Creative Enterprise Zone mural tours, Evie Electric car demonstration, crafts, games and more.
The highlight was the addition of the new mural at the Murphy Riggings building, 2299 W. Territorial Road. Created by Kara Goelen, the artist who also designed the painting on Seal Street, the mural draws in both detailed and large-scale focal points.
Special thanks to the AARP Community Challenge grant and the city of St. Paul’s Neighborhood Sales Tax Revitalization (STAR) grant for funding this and many other projects on Territorial Road.
Brightside volunteers needed
Brightside Produce, a local organization offering at-cost produce to corner stores, is looking for volunteers each Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help pack and deliver their pay-what-you-can produce delivery boxes.
The more volunteers that serve the program, the more Brightside can serve more community members who need fresh produce. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The SAPCC Equity Committee would like to build a team of volunteers who can pack regularly (once a month or more).
Ice Cream Social
The District 12 Community Council ice cream social is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 17, at Hampden Park, 993 Hampden Ave. Come to build community.
