Last night, the state of Minnesota’s Sesquicentennial banner arrived in Northfield. It’s making its way around the state via public libraries (see librarian Debby Nitz’ blog post for details) and so Lynne Young, Director of the Northfield Public Library, was the master of ceremonies for its unveiling on Bridge Square.
The banner will be at the library all day today and Saturday, along with a journal that local citizens can write in. Booker takes the banner to St. Paul on Sunday where festivities for Statehood Week begin.
