Bridgette Hallcock photos: Laura Baker Gala 2011

Father Xmas and Mary Closner; photo by Bridgette Hallcock DSC05465 Laura Baker Services Association Gala 2011 
Mary Closner was one of many volunteer extraordinaires at this year’s Laura Baker Services Association Gala held back on Dec. 3 (the night of our one and only snowfall) at Carleton College. She was in charge of the silent auction, among other tasks, and twisted the arms of many into helping, including me and my sweetie.

Bridgette Hallcock volunteered her photography services and her photos of the evening are now posted to both her Bridgette Hallcock Photography Facebook page and in a blog post by LBSA’s Jane Fenton.  Jane says:

Love these? Please contact our volunteer photographer, at 507-271-3263 for a print. All sizes, tones, canvas mounting available. Part of your purchase comes back to LBSA.

See Jane’s blog post of all the sponsors of the Gala, most of them Northfield organizations and Northfielders.

Premier Bank’s nifty double play

Photo by Bridgette Hallcock, taken at last year’s Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals Last week I got emails from Sandy Vesledahl and Bridgette Hallcock at Premier Bank, alerting me to an upcoming pancake breakfast fundraiser for the Rice County Humane Society (RCHS). (Dog photo by Bridgette, taken at last year’s Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals.) I assumed they wanted me to blog about it so I pitched them a Locally Grown membership instead:

‘Twould be great to have Premier Bank as a member of LG. Then you could promo events like this as a community service of Premier.  Of course, you can also promo bank-related products and services, too.

Sandy then had the brilliant idea of the bank not only buying a Locally Grown membership for themselves but a separate one for RCHS so that they could do their own sidebar membership blog posts.

Photo albums: The 2009 Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals (Bridgette Hallcock photos)

I was out of town at a funeral on Saturday so I missed taking photos for the Susan Perry Memorial Walk for Animals. Fortunately, Castle Rock-based photographer Bridgette Hallcock was on hand to chronicle the event.  I’ve put her photos into two albums in my Northfield gallery, appending Bridgette’s name to the albums (Picasaweb doesn’t allow galleries to have multiple authors).

See the album of 53 people-oriented shots, the large slideshow, or this small slideshow:

Friends you can count on

I got treated last week to a surprise birthday party, orchestrated by my sweetie. She called on these people to help:

Jeff Johnson Tim Freeland Doug Bratland Bridgette Hallcock
L to R: Jeff Johnson, KYMN, emceed the roast; Tim Freeland, KYMN, took the video; Doug Bratland took 24 photos at the start of the party and blogged them within an hour on Northfield.org; and Bridgette Hallcock, DJJD photographer who took over 300 photos throughout the evening (including the above ones of Jeff, Tim and Doug). I’ve put up a party photo album of 100 of Bridgett’s photos here.

Bridgette Hallcock Photography, Castle Rock, MN 507-271-3262 Bridgett’s the best special event photographer around, IMHO. Her card says: "Bridgette Hallcock Photography, Castle Rock, Specializing in outdoor photography of seniors, families, and special events. 507-271-3262."

Update 10/3: Robbie was horrified when she saw this blog post because I didn’t include two people who worked behind the scenes with her prior to the event:

Jessica Paxton and Tracy Davis. Thanks, ladies!
