District 10 Como Community Council

Pick up trash, weed local gardens


THANK YOU to everyone who showed up to last month’s Como Park Cleanup event. We counted 142 amazing volunteers, including 33 from the Twin Cities German Immersion School, that’s huge!
We’re planning our first 2023 LakeCleanup for Tuesday, May 23, 5-8 pm. These events, in partnership with the Capitol Region Watershed District, focus on the shoreline and Lake Como itself.
2023 Lake Cleanup dates:
• Tuesday, May 23 – 5-8 p.m.
• Saturday, June 17 – 9 a.m.-Noon
• Tuesday, July 25 – 5-8p.m.
• Saturday, Sept. 23 – 9 a.m.-Noon
District 10 provides trash-grabbers, rakes, buckets, nets, trash bags, and nitrile gloves for those who need them. Or, feel free to provide your own gear. Registration (before May 22) is not required, but it helps us plan and communicate if changes come up.

Como Homo Hangout - June 25, Noon-4pm
The Como Community Council will be hosting the 2nd annual Como Homo LGBTQ+ Pride event at the Como Pavilion We will have at least one activity to help out with socialization, and an activity or two for the kids. Spread the word. Everyone is invited to this free event!
For the past three years, the Como Community Council has hosted the Como Homo Pride event at the Como Pavilion Lakeside. While the Council is more than happy to help organize the event, we’re always looking for LGBTQ+ neighbors who want to plan events, pageants, community building activities and food. Contact organizer@district10comopark.org if you’re interested.

Annual Ice Cream Social - July 14, 5:30-8pm
Every year, the D10 Neighborhood Relations Committee plans our Ice Cream Social, typically featuring free ice cream, live music, meet-and-greets with neighborhood organizations, and activities for children and families. The event is at the Historic Streetcar Station in Como Park, 1224 Lexington Pkwy N. Because parking is limited, we encourage community members to walk, bike, roll, car-pool, or take public transportation. Bring your neighbors!
This event is still being planned. If you’re interested in helping plan or volunteering at this event, fill out our volunteer interest form, come to our Neighborhood Relations Committee meetings (1st Tuesdays), or reach out to organizer@district10comopark.org.
