How the Heavy Lifting Really Gets Done

Much of the work of the NDDC occurs behind the scenes…and is performed by elves.


Keith Covey, Scott Davis, Joe Grundhoefer, Kiffi Summa and Victor Summa joined me this morning at the Upstairs Reub-N-Stein to stuff bags full of downtown goodies for Family and Parent Weekend at St. Olaf College. With such a combination of great minds, we quickly developed a perfect system…or two, to fill the bags.


When the 500 bags of goodies were all lined up, it seemed like a cross between Martha Stewart and Halloween, especially with Krin Finger’s hand-tied bows and Mary Rossing’s fake fangs.


The bags will be distributed to visiting Families and Parents at St. Olaf this Saturday. Two weeks from now, we’ll do the same thing at Carleton College.
