This spring a Carleton College student produced a short video about the efforts of the neighborhood leaders in Cannon River Mobile Home Park. It is a great depiction of their dedication and work. Thank you to Libbie Weimer for all of her hard work!! Check it out below…
I am a single mother of a teenager, a preteen, and a toddler. I am a Lightworker looking for peace by raising awareness. I work as a certified nursing assistant enjoying assisting seniors with their daily activities. Thinking with positive goals I seek to better people’s perspectives of themselves, others, and life ahead of them. I wish to live greener – becoming more conscious of others’ needs in a global village sense. I am working toward becoming a midwife so that I may be able to better educate women about such a natural, natural miracle and all that it entails. I love the outdoors!
My name is Siyat Guhad. I am from Somalia. I came to Faribault 5 years ago as a refugee. Faribault is a great city and has great people. I am a neighborhood leader and like helping my community in integrating or assimilating with the greater Rice County community. I also like educating my community about where they can get access to various resources that are available in Rice County.
My name is Claudia. I am originally from Veracruz, Mexico and have been living in Northfield for nine years. I am attending Riverland Community College in Austin, MN for two years to get my general done. I hope to then transfer to a four year college to major in educational studies to become a Speech Instructor at the college level. I decided to become a Neighborhood Leader because I love being involved in my community and at my church and because I love working with people :)
