Seward Market reopens

The Seward Market reopened Thursday. I walked over about eight to do some shopping and to show some support. There were seven guys behind the cash register. I was the only customer. It was very sad. I even cried a little.

I know that it is not easy being in a new country and trying to make a living. But I know it is good to have a community to support you. I don't think there were seven guys working at that market last night. I think there was one guy working at the market, and six friends showing their support.

There are many ways of showing your support. The jar by our cash register is stuffed with donations. Or you can do like Bob Olson did. He was a long time Seward neighborhood resident who recently passed away at the age of 82. He left his money to his neighbors, the City of Minneapolis, and the University of Minnesota's libraries.

When you invest in your time and money into your community, everyone benefits. Right now the families of the three shooting victims need our help.

Thank you for whatever you can do.

Seward Market Memorial Fund

I just wanted to share with you the official memorial fund announcement for the families of the Seward Market shooting victims:
Seward Redesign and the Seward Neighborhood Group have established a memorial fund for the immediate family of the three individuals killed at the Seward Market on January 6, 2010.

You may contribute to the fund in any of the following ways:
  1. Drop donations in collection jars at local businesses.
  2. Drop off donations at Redesign's office .
  3. Drop off/deposit donations at the Wells Fargo at 2600 Franklin Avenue.
Checks should be written to Seward Market Memorial Fund.

You may call Amy at Seward Redesign with any questions, 338-8729, x101.
We have a donation jar by the cash register and so far True Thai's customers have been very generous. Thanks to those who've donated, and those of you who will be making a donation next time you come in for your favorite Thai food.

By popular demand

I continue to be amazed at how much curry sauce we've sold since offering it as a take-home purchase. You add the protein and veggies of your choice and our sauces help to True Thai-ify your kitchen. (True Thai-ify? OK, maybe that is not a word, but I think you know what I mean.)

In addition to Red Curry, Green Curry, the peanut-licious Rama Curry, we are now able to offer you yet another True Thai staple: TRUE THAI STIR FRY SAUCE.

Just add a little to some of your home cooked stir fry and watch in amazement as your kids eat their vegetables!

Because it makes Anna happy to know you eat well at home, just like Anna does.

I thought I should also mention that there is now a memorial fund for the victims of the recent shootings. You can send your donations to:

Seward Redesign
2619 E. Franklin Ave.
Minneapolis, MN. 55406

Checks should be made out to Seward Market Memorial Fund
A suspect has been arrested and the other perpetrators should know that the entire Seward community is working with the police to solve this terrible crime.
