Videos of Habitat Week in Hawthorne! (part 1)
Post and videos by Jeff Skrenes, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council Housing Director
This has been a tremendous week for the Hawthorne Neighborhood Council, as we've had the honor of President Jimmy Carter and Vice President Walter Mondale working together on a Habitat project for the very first time in 27 years of Habitat for Humanity housing work done by the President and his wife. Plenty of other media have been doing an excellent job covering the success of the EcoVillage, Hawthorne community members, and the countless volunteers who have descended upon our neighborhood.
Here at the Hawthorne Neighborhood Council, we've been so busy that we haven't had a chance to sift through all the great photos, videos, and stories of the week. As things settle down, we'll be sure to add more content on this blog. In the meantime, here is the first of several video posts. The footage above is from the opening ceremonies at the Mall of America. Senator Franken spoke and we had excellent music from the angelic Ashleigh Still and the always racuous Belfast Cowboys.
