October Events

Halloween Party

Calling all of Minerva Park’s little ghosts and goblins! Our annual Children’s Halloween Party will be on October 26th from 10am- Noon. Crafts, face painting, games and snacks for the kiddos! Costumes are welcome! Hope to see you at this Spook-tacular event!
The link below is to our Minerva Park Children’s Halloween party event page. We will keep you updated on event information and awesome volunteer opportunities! Events like this are not possible without our super village volunteers!

Candidate’s Night

MPCA will host a Candidate’s Night event on Wednesday, October 23. The event will be held at the Hawthorne Gym, and run from 6:30-8:00. This event allows residents to ask written questions of the three mayoral and two (write in) council candidates. A moderator will ask the questions and ensure responses stay within allotted time.

I’m looking for volunteers to “host” the event. This involves greeting residents, and passing out pencils and index cards for questions. Also, the volunteers would collect the questions and sort our duplicates, then hand them off to the moderator. Finally, volunteers would help get folks out on time so that Hawthorne staff can clean up.

Family Fun Night

Family Fun Night is July 27, 2019

Due to extreme heat, this event has been postponed until Saturday, July 27.

Join us from 6 to 9 pm at the pool for fun, food, games, music, and the pool. Bring cash for the $4 admission, raffle tickets, beer, as well as hot dogs and hamburgers!

We also need lots of help! See our sign up link below to help and sign up for paddle boat rides.!/showSignUp/70A0F4AADAF22A2F58-family
