Please join SPPA on August 2nd for a Neighborhood Night Out Party starting at 531 West Skyline Parkway on the front lawn. We will have hotdogs, chips, watermelon, cookies, bars, water and lemonade. Come and meet some of our new board members and see the new logo design. We will have information about SPPA and you can sign up for membership and look at Skyline pictures and history. Come and enjoy some food and great conversation.

Parkway signs

New signs will be coming for Skyline Parkway this summer. The process to get the grant finished has happened and Visual Communications out of St. Paul was hired to design a new logo. A committee was formed to look at the new designs and they have selected a new logo. It incorporates the old logo along with some familiar icons of Duluth and the parkway.

Enger Tower lighting

SPPA will be joining in the celebration of the Enger Tower lighting with the city of Duluth. Since the new signs will be going up soon it would be a perfect way to show off the new signs. The celebration will happen on June 15th. The details are still being worked out. Please watch for details and plan on joining us for this joyous celebration!

SPPA has two new board members

We would like to welcome them as they bring us new energy and ideas. Beth Koralia and Mary Sage. Thanks for coming on board!

The display rolls up into its base, making it easy to store and set up. If you can think of locations that might host the display for a week or a month or more, contact us. Locations should be indoors safe from rampaging children and other hazards. Short term use at events is also an option.
