Coming up on Saturday!

The Josiah Edson Chapter 
Daughters of the American Revolution

Invites you to a special Dedication Ceremony



Saturday, September, 24, 2016 at 10 am



The Story:
Originally dedicated on May 7, 1932, the bronze plaque and a Washington Elm tree were a gift to the Northfield Carnegie Library given by Josiah Edson Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution. After the death of the tree, the plaque went into storage 
and was lost.



Three Iowa women found it at a sale in Iowa and returned the plaque to the Josiah Edson Chapter. Today as we remember those whose work went before us, we rededicate the original plaque and dedicate a Patriot Elm with its own plaque.




Welcome all!

Pulling together for Northfield! CANCELLED DUE TO HIGH WATER!

Could you pull a 6,000-pound truck filled with Northfield area leaders? Probably not. But if we pull together with a clear goal in mind, Northfield Area United Way believes we can move just about anything – or anyone – forward, no matter how weighty.
Northfield  Area United Way is asking locals to demonstrate the power of pulling together during its fall campaign launch. Teams will attempt to pull a giant Ford truck filled with area leaders representing the Northfield area from just inside Fifth St. to Bridge Square along Water St. from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22. The team pulling the truck the distance the fastest will win. The United Way Truck Pull is sponsored by Dokmo Ford-Chrysler, which also is providing the truck.
Leaders in the truck will include Northfield Mayor Dana Graham; City Administrator Ben Martig; Police Chief Monte Nelson; City of Northfield’s Director of Library and IT Services Teresa Jenson; and Northfield City Council Members Jennifer Peterson White, Rhonda Pownell and Erica Zweifel.
Leaders from all areas served by the Northfield Area United Way have been invited to participate, including officials from Dundas, Dennison, Lonsdale, Kilkenny, Lonsdale, Montgomery and Webster.
KYMN’s Jeff Johnson will emcee the event.
Teams that want to compete to pull the truck are forming now. If you would like to field a team, contact the Northfield Area United Way, 507-664-3510 or connect@northfieldunitedway.org. The number of teams is limited, so register your team as soon as possible.
The public is encouraged to cheer on teams and join in an ice cream social. Ice cream and Jonny Pops are free, complements of Upper Lakes Foods and Jonny Pops.

What was once lost is found!
