Northfield Area Foundation Contributes to Holiday Decorations Fund

NAF check acceptance.jpgThe Northfield Area Foundation awarded a $2,710 grant to the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation on Saturday morning to support the Downtown Holiday Decorations Fund, a collaboration with the Northfield Area Chamber of Commerce.

Pictured here are NAF President Anne Mayer and former NDDC President and current Holiday Decoration Committee Chair Dan Bergeson.

Through contributions from downtown businesses, the Creative Professionals Committee’s Jailhouse Rock Auction, and the grant from the Northfield Area Foundation, we are three-quarters of the way to our goal: we have $15,000 of the required $20,000.

We hope to to raise the last $5,000 by the end of May 2009 so we can order the new decorations for this year’s holidays. Contributions in any amount can be sent to: NDDC, P.O. Box 55, Northfield, MN 55057. Please note that the donation should benefit the Holiday Decorations Fund.
