My wife Robbie and I moved to Northfield in 1974, just after we got married. We raised all four of our kids here. We’re new empty-nesters but we plan to live here till we die, hopefully not real soon.
With all the recent controversies, going back to July last year, the town has gotten a considerable amount of negative publicity. Some people worry that this might be deterring people and businesses from relocating here. The controversies aren’t likely to go away soon, either.
So I think it’s time to put on our local booster hats and let the world know why we like it here. It might even do ourselves some good.
If you need some ideas, take a look at the 80 photo albums that show slices of life here.
- Instead of submitting a laundry list in one comment, submit a sentence or two that describes just one thing. And then, if you have another item to submit, add it later. Another? Add it later. I bet I can think of a couple dozen things that I’d like to add eventually.
- You can expand on what others post but don’t take issue with what others post. This is an all-positive, booster-rich thread.
- All other Locally Grown discussion guidelines apply.
Sooooooo, what do you love about Northfield? Why people should move here?
