NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | Presidential walk in NE Minneapolis February 19


Most folks know that the history of the Presidents defines the street order in Northeast – reason enough to celebrate President’s Day with a walk through the neighborhood that bears their names – in mostly-chronological order. Saturday, February 19, marks the third annual “We Love Our Presidents” walk and celebration through what may be the most presidential neighborhood in the United States.

The walk begins at 10:00 at the Firefighters Hall and Museum, 664 22nd Ave. NE.  Trekkers will take a break for hot cocoa at Windom Park (Johnson and Lowry), then continue to Northeast Middle School for a hot chili lunch and short program.

A free shuttle bus will tote walkers back to the Firefighters Hall after lunch.

Families can prepare by participating in the Paint the White House coloring contest – details and graphics online.

It’s all free, donations gratefully accepted.  Walkers from non-presidential hoods are welcome walk and learn more about the presidents and the neighborhood.   Questions?  Call 612 668 1515.
