Welcome to Minne Lusa Messenger

MLM Logo

A funny thing happened one day at Minne Lusa House, 2737 Mary Street. A few of us neighbors were discussing ways that we could better communicate neighborhood “goings on” and news. A thought bubble appeared over the top of the table of neighbors and the Minne Lusa Messenger was born. High fives all around!

A meeting of volunteers took place this last January and ideas for stories flowed. Story assignments went to volunteer writers: Jessica R., Rosalind M., Larry R., Matt B., Denise C., Kristine G., Jeanne C., Michelle J., Kathy H., Sheila O., and our editor Paulissa K., to check content and a graphic designer Viki A. to pull it together was decided.

We have launched this new blog to coincide with our new printed neighborhood newsletter. You will be able to download and print all of our newsletters at this blog.
