Hayes quickly pointed out the new men’s urinal to me, knowing my reputation. I was relieved. He said he was placing the order today for a public restroom sign that will appear in one of the window panes of the exterior door (right photo).
This spring, St. Dominic parish will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the laying of the cornerstone of their church. Nearly forgotten is the old church and the tumultuous debate that preceded its ultimate demolition in the Fall of 1985. Tradition-minded parishioners joined with preservationists in the community to try to save the old church building. The contest attracted letters to the editor of the Northfield News from around the country, and newspaper articles in the Faribault Daily News and the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Northfield Historical Society muckety mucks held a ground-breaking ceremony late yesterday afternoon in front of the Scriver Building, marking the start of the NHS ‘accessibility project,’ primarily the addition of an elevator and restrooms.

At a holiday gathering at the Upstairs Rueb last night, Earl Weinmann announced that the Northfield Historical Society‘s MVPosse Tour Guide award for 2010 goes to Judy Boehme. NHS ED Hayes Scriven and Christian Hakala ("the sheriff" of the Adult Posse program) made the presentation.
There’s lots happening at the Northfield Historical Society these days. So we’re hosting a webinar with NHS Executive Director Hayes Scriven on Monday, Sep. 27, 3-4 PM to learn all about it, including:
But there are a couple of keepers in the batch like the one of Chip DeMann with his registration table work crew and the one of NHS ED Hayes Scriven with his wife Jenny and his parents, Sue and Mark Scriven.
