To our Stakeholders,

Thank you so much for joining us this evening. Thank you also for your patience and support during the past few years as we grew and developed as an entity.
Your continued partnership over the next years is critical to our survival as an organization and our ability to provide services to the residents and businesses of the Northeast community. You can help in a number of ways: by volunteering at upcoming events, your business or organization sponsoring an event, or even by joining our board! I look forward to working closely together as we serve the residents and businesses of Minneapolis.
