On November 14, Janet Lewis Muth sat down with Carleton student Brian Gilbert for an interview. Brian and several other students at Carleton, along with faculty members, have started a website called Pressville for publishing news that is pertinent to the Northfield area. Here is the link to the interview…
Tomorrow evening is the annual “Night to Unite” (formerly known as National Night Out) – a chance to get out, meet some neighbors, and get to know the local law enforcement folks as partners in our community. The Cannon River Mobile Home Park is having their annual gathering from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Pinatas made by participants in our very own Camp Sol will be part of the festivities.
The Northfield festivities will be held in a central location – on Water Street. Look for the Growing Up Healthy team from Viking Terrace at the Community Services table.
Hope to see you there!
The Viking Terrace team has added three new leaders. Araceli, Lucy and Roberto all bring amazing skills and experience to the team. Keep an eye out for their profiles on this page. They have started working in earnest and have already contributed to the policy agenda and the latest event put on for Viking Terrace. We are privileged to have them as part of the team!
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 :)
We are in high gear to get our neighborhood leaders in place. Several of the interviews have taken place, with several more happening this week. At this point we are hopeful that we will have at least 2 leaders from Viking Terrace, 2 from the Jefferson Area, and 2 from Greenvale Place (Northfield). We also hope to have 2-4 from the Four Seasons area, and we’re still looking for leaders from Hulet (Faribault). If you know people who live in these neighborhoods who have natural leadership skills, send them our way!
