Please consider Old Highland when making your GTMD donations. The Old Highland Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)(3) and that makes your contributions to Old Highland eligible for charitable tax deductions. Virtually all of our funds cover expenses for 3 primary events: The annual spring clean-up at the end of April, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Home Tour on the last weekend in April, and Blooming Boulevards on Memorial Day weekend. Because we have no paid staff, virtually 100% of your contribution goes to program expenses.
Old Highland is hosting its annual Blooming Boulevards celebration on Monday, May 26th!
10am: Meet at 1722 Fremont to help with roto-tilling boulevard gardens, distributing free flowers, or painting the Old Highland litter containers.

Can’t help on Monday? There’s still time to sign up for free flowers, just drop off your form at 1722 Fremont by Sunday.
