On April 8, students at Visitation School in Mendota Heights partnered with the Days for Girls program to make hygiene kits for girls in developing countries. The Roseville Rotary Club has two upcoming Days for Girls events planned in May and June. The hygiene kits made at such events can help girls manage their periods in order to not miss days of school.
Kits help girls abroad manage their periods and stay in school
Roseville’s J. Arthur’s Coffee will be closed to the public effective May 1. The shop, opened in 2008 by ACR Homes and opened to the public in 2011, will revert to its original purpose of serving as a gathering place for ACR staff and the people with disabilities supported by ACR.
Space will remain as private meeting place
A March 31 post on the J. Arthur’s Coffee shop Facebook page makes clear the message being conveyed is not an April Fools’ joke.
The new Bell Museum of Natural History and Planetarium that is currently under construction in Falcon Heights features bird-safe fritted glass windows. Though less than 30 percent of the museum will be glass, the second-floor box window is 25 feet high by 80 feet wide. The museum opens summer 2018.
The fritted glass windows are screen printed with dot patterns to appear as solid surfaces to birds, which can often fly into reflective windows.
After Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium made headlines for its unsafe-for-avians glass finish, one of Falcon Heights’ newest additions is attempting to be a safer structure for the birds.
