Community Day of Service May 8

Its time for the 8th Annual Community Day of Service in Northfield. The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 8 and will take place at venues throughout the City.

Command central for volunteers will be at Central Park (right behind Northfield Middle School, at Fourth and College streets). Should you need supplies — or if you’re looking for a project to join — people will be there to assist you from 8 a.m. to noon. Project leaders and others should pick up their supplies for park cleanup (such as gloves, etc.) and other work at Central Park.

There will be lunch, a puppet show, and a parade beginning at 11:30 back at Central Park. Lunch is free for volunteers. Folks may sign up as participants in advance by visiting

NDDC members will be working on HWY 3, HWY 19, Riverwalk, and the Scriver Building painting project, but were happy to have more people join us. See you downtown!
