March is a busy month for everyone, especially CHANCE members working with the Cedar-Riverside community. CHANCE meetings are held twice a month, with the next operational meeting being held March 7th. Look for an email soon for the time and location of the next meeting if you are interested in attending. Everyone is welcome!
Some of the upcoming events in the community include:
Brian Coyle Youth Basketball Challenge: Come join fellow Humphrey students and faculty as they face-off against the youth of Cedar-Riverside at the Brian Coyle Youth Center from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on March 7th. The last game was a close one for the Humphrey students, but the youth dominated on the court. Can the Humphrey make a comeback? Every level of playing experience is welcomed to participate, but if you don't think you have the skills, watching the contest is just as fun! Students will be meeting at 6pm in the Humphrey Atrium to walk over and warm up before the event begins.
Brian Coyle Center Food Drive: During the month of March, the Brian Coyle Center is holding its annual food drive. Look for boxes to drop off non-perishable food items in the Jernberg lounge. Do a little spring cleaning in your kitchen! Items in need are: flour, sugar, rice, spaghetti, tuna, canned beans, and canned corn. Other non-perishable items are also welcomed. Monetary donations are also an optional way to help the center and can be dropped off with Evelyn at the Brian Coyle Center (420 15th Avenue South, Minneapolis). Participating in the food drive is a great way to help the community with only a small amount of effort.
Taste of Cedar-Riverside: Ever wondered what you should order at Tam Tam's or where you can get a great cup of coffee around campus? Join CHANCE members on March 27th in the Carlson Atrium from 11:30-2pm for a FREE tasting event of Cedar-Riverside restaurants. Restaurants will be bringing one to two popular dishes for variety of delicious tasting experiences for curious students. Stop by and see what you've been missing!
