I like our lakes, Minnehaha creek and Minnehaha falls, our parks, the concerts & movies in the parks, our neighborhoods, the grocery co-ops and our general friendliness ! I like the Riverview theater and Merlins Rest. I like our many ethnic restaurants. I depend on our library system. I am proud we have biking paths and the Green way (altho I am not - yet - a biker) I revel in our International Film Festival. I appreciate our orchestra, our many colleges, universities, theaters and our interesting housing stock. I am proud of our progressive history, our many peace, social justice, and environmental groups - including the new Occupy ! I like living here !
I've lived in Minneapolis since 1957 & in southwest Minneapolis since 1959. I attended U of M & Metropolitan State University. I've been a member of our grocery coops since 1973. I'm an environmentalist & I like local history including architecture.
This was my first participation with Preserve Minneapolis. And one of few Meet-ups with which I have participated. I am Very Impressed with Organization and preparation. I like the very full schedule of upcoming events.
