Yesterday evening I was invited to attend the chairperson orientation for the Northfield Sesquicentennial Celebration planning. Yes…the City of Northfield will be 150 years old next year! The event is being organized by the Northfield Historical society and I’ll be providing assistance in various ways.
So far the planning involves an opening candle lit walk in January 2005 and ends with a Governor’s ball in December. Most of the planned activities will take place between May and September. The focus for the event is listed as “strengthing the 150 years of community through culture”. Marian Hvistendahl was dressed in period costume and played the role of Mrs. John North. She did a great job portraying Ann North.
It is wonderful to see the Northfield Historical Society so involved with this important event. I know they will lead a great celebration of our 150 years. Watch for upcoming announcements and events.
