Inver Grove Heights
Supreme Court justice featured in talk
Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Paul Anderson will offer thoughts about his career on Thursday as he prepares to retire after nearly 20 years on the bench.
Inver Hills Community College is hosting a presentation called “Portrait of a Public Servant” as part of its Interesting Conversations with Interesting People series. The justice’s career on the bench included cases involving two statewide election recounts.
The talk is free and open to the public, and will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in room 203 of Heritage Hall on the campus, 2500 E. 80th St., Inver Grove Heights.
Arboretum plant sale delayed to May 18-19
The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum will celebrate the Arboretum Auxiliary’s spring plant sale May 18-19 — a week later than originally planned because of the unseasonably cold spring.
The plant sale will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. both days.
The sale offers hard-to-find varieties and University of Minnesota introductions. A plant list is available at the arboretum information desk or by mail for $2; write to “Plant List,” 1605 Fairway Lane, Minneapolis, MN 55426.
Admission is $12 for adults. Admission for ages 12 and under is free.
Sexual assault awareness walk
A candlelight walk in support of survivors of sexual violence is set for Wednesday night at the 360 Communities Lewis House in Eagan, a domestic violence shelter.
The walk will take participants to a nearby park, where a sexual assault survivor and other speakers will share their stories. The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the shelter. For safety reasons, the shelter does not make its address public. Call 651-452-7288 for directions or more information.
Participants should bring a candle, a flashlight and an umbrella in case of rain or wind.
“This candlelight walk aims to do more than just raise the public consciousness about the prevalence of sexual violence,” said Ann Sheridan, 360 Communities director of violence and prevention. “We want to engage all men, women and young people to become our partners in ending it.”
