It was standing room only at the 2012 Annual Meeting! Thank you for such a great turnout, and to our guest speakers Inspector Mike Martin, Council Member Don Samuels, and newly elected State Representative Raymond Dehn.

Regular Old Highland board meetings are held the first Thursday of each month, and everyone is encouraged to attend.

Bob Yapp Workshops: Window Restoration

Our first Restoration Workshop with Bob Yapp concluded yesterday with Clarence Meyer the recipient of 6 newly restored windows in his home. Thanks to Bob and a crew of 12 folks, a few Old Highlanders, and many more from across the city.

It truly was a BOOT CAMP with three intense days of learning and doing. All were a bit tired but excited by what they accomplished. The Wood Repair, Paint it Right and Floor restoration work shops remain. All of the slots are filled but we do encourage observers.

This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota through the Minnesota Historical Society from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Blooming Boulevards 2012

Old Highland had a great turnout for Blooming Boulevards 2012. Thank you to Anne and Jeremy Morris for organizing the event and hosting the potluck!
