Board Focuses on Taste of Northfield

NDDCBoardOfDirectorsMay09.jpgThe NDDC Board of Directors held their regularly scheduled monthly meeting yesterday. Although they discussed the Development Regulations Re-write, the U of M’s Market Area Profile, upgrading our communication software, clarifying our organizational advocacy statement policy, and the Holland, Michigan Experience, they largely focused on the upcoming Taste of Northfield.

This year’s Taste will be Thursday, June 18th, from 5 to 10 p.m., in and around the center of our downtown and heart of our community, Bridge Square. In addition to enjoying the culinary offerings of some of Northfield finest restaurants (with more participants than ever before!), folks can listen to the Northfield Community Band, participate in silent and live auctions, experience a beer garden and/or wine tasting on the bridge, check out the James-Younger Gang Bank Raid Re-enactment, and dance in the street to the music of the Over and Back Band.

The current NDDC Board Members are, from left to right starting in the front row: Anastasia Balfany, Greg Kneser, Joe Grundhoefer, Keith Covey and in the back row: Jeff Hasse, Robert Bierman, Mark Quinnell, Dave Shumway, Rob Schanilec, Julie Bixby, and Jessica Paxton. See them, wearing special buttons, at the Taste of Northfield.
