UPDATES

Hello everyone!

Apologies for how long it’s been since our websites were updated. We’ve had some staff and board member changes over the summer so we’ve had to do some shifting of duties. Anyway! This Fall is proving to be a busy one, with our 2016 Northeast Calendar contest being a main focus.

Speaking of the 2016 Northeast Calendar: We’d like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who submitted artwork! We really appreciate your participation and enthusiasm. Last Thursday night the submissions were voted on by the public and now we’re in the process of finishing up the calendar design in order to get it printed soon. Please stay tuned to our websites and Facebook pages–web versions of the winning submissions will be posted ASAP along with information about how and where to pick up calendars once they’re available.

Thank you again to all of the artists who submitted work for the calendar and to everyone who supports our lovely Northeast Minneapolis neighborhoods and the NE CDC!

Happy Autumn!

Northeast CDC Board Member

NECDC/MNSure Open Enrollment Events Successful!

On January 10 and February 7, the NECDC and MNSure collaborated on healthcare sign-up events for open enrollment in Minnesota’s healthcare exchange. At least two dozen people were either signed up, or later contacted for healthcare. We at the NECDC along MNSure were greatly pleased with the results. Actions like this are why Minnesota is one of the most insured states in the nation. Way to go to all those involved! Here a few pictures of the event.

2013 NE Ride map by Kevin Cannon

We’re happy to announce that local cartoonist Kevin Cannon is designing the ride map again this year for the third year in a row! One of the perks of participating in the NE Ride is getting to take home one of these delightful maps for yourself. We’re very excited and grateful to have one of Northeast’s own talented artists working with us on the ride. Thank you, Kevin. Can’t wait to see the new finished map!
