After a hundred and fifty years, Northfield’s downtown finally has a mascot! She’s black and white and furry all over with a red and gold NDDC brand on her backside. This cute and lovable cow will make guest appearances in the Northfield area over the next months to promote downtown businesses and encourage visitors to check out the great restaurants and shops that Northfield has to offer. She will represent the downtown to St. Olaf and Carleton alumni, parents and students, visitors to many sporting events, and perhaps even be in a few parades.
But this “cow-cierge” needs a name. We are asking the citizens of Northfield to help give her a clever name. The contest will run through April 1st with the winning entry receiving a swell prize package. Entries can be brought in to Present Perfect at 419 Division Street or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The inaugural appearance of the (as of now un-named) cow was at the St. Patrick’s Parade today (Saturday, March 15th) where she was greeting people, handing out “name the cow” ballots, and tossing Milky Way candy bars. So get creative and help us name the Downtown Cow.
