Mark Loesch Memorial Walk Tonight in Kingfield

Mark Loesch went out on his routine bike ride through his neighborhood on the evening of September 12. He did not make it back and was and found dead on the 3700 block of Elliott Ave S the next morning.

Residents of the area are sponsoring a memorial walk and bike ride tonight, starting at 6:30 at Martin Luther King Park (41st & Nicollet).

There will also be a community safety forum at 6:30 next Monday night at Park Avenue Methodist Church (34th & Park). Not sure what the format will be. I hope in addition to the public grieving and inevitable airing of grievances, some constructive information and hopefully some community action will come out of it.

Surprisingly, nothing is up on the Kingfield Neighborhood Association‘s website about this, but it’s possible something may have gone out over the mailing list (which you might want to join if you live in Kingfield). More on Mark Loesch at the Minneapolis Issues Forum as well.

    It should be a nice evening. Hopefully, the turn out for the ride will exceed expectations.

    Coincidentally, on my way from dinner at Jakeeno’s to choir rehearsal at Calvary Lutheran, I drove down Elliott from 36th to 39th. I make this drive weekly for 9 months out of the year and I have never before today nearly as many people out on the street as I did on that 3700 block of Elliott.
