Friends of the Hawthorne Huddle,

On August 3 we will focus on Back to School in Minneapolis. We will hear from Brandon Wait and Mary Whitney of the Paladin Career and Technical High School.  Matthew Johnson and Tina Flowers from Hopkins Schools will be there as well.  Even though both of these schools are located outside of North Minneapolis, they both have a number of children who attend their schools who are from the North Side.

The Hawthorne Huddle will be held from 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room at Fairview Park, 621 29th Avenue North. A continental breakfast will be available at 7:15 a.m.

WELCOME: Diana Hawkins, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council and Ann DeGroot, Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board;

INTRODUCTIONS: Please share your name and organization so others can network with you after the meeting
