NDDC Board Member Keith Covey takes a shift at the table for Carleton’s Family and Parent weekend. The NDDC has distibuted hundreds of Downtown Welcome Bags at both St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges over the past two weeks to support the schools’ hospitality and to let the visitors know about opportunities in Downtown Northfield.

Over two dozen volunteers supported this effort, doing things like filling the bags, delivering the bags, and greeting visitors with a gift of a bag. The response from the families and parents has made it all worthwhile. They’ve told us that the town is making them feel welcome and they feel good about having their kids attend a school here in Northfield.

How could you not feel welcomed by a guy like Keith…
