Last fall, residents from Afton View Apartments came to our office to see if there wasn't a way to provide access to Highwood Hills Rec Center facilities for children this winter. In collaboration with Kathy Lantry's office and the St. Paul Parks Department, the Rec Center has been open Monday and Wednesday afternoon for kids to meet, play, and do homework. Over 50 children per afternoon have a chance for positive fun in a safe and welcoming atmosphere.
This is the kind of thing we can accomplish when residents and the District Council work together!!
