Community park seeks plant donations

The Navarre Community Initiative is looking for residents to donate hostas to fill gardens at the Navarre Playground Park.

The group will host a drop-off from 10 a.m. to noon June 7 at the park on Lyric Avenue and Shadywood Road, just north of the Navarre parking lot. Any variety of hostas as well as lilies will be accepted. Free refreshments will be provided.

Volunteers also are needed to help plant the hostas from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, e-mail Navarreto day@gmail.com.


Speak out about the Senior Center

The city of Edina’s May online discussion at www.SpeakUpEdina.org will focus on the city’s Senior Center.

The city wants to know whether or not residents are members, if they will join the center when they are eligible, what they think its future is and what kind of recreation opportunities they believe should be offered there.

The discussion will be open until May 31. Paper feedback forms are available at the Edina Senior Center, 5280 Grandview Square.
