Merry Christmas Griff! Thought you’d enjoy this local “flash mob”. On Wednesday 12/22 my daughter Jean arranged a surprise serenade for her Secret Santa at Northfield’s Caribou Coffee – Mgr Amanda George. The guys involved are some members of the NHS group BCG. From the left they are Dan Remes, Connor Fink, Peter Duba, Cole Harding, Steven Carson, Sullie Ojala-Hembolt, and Theo Hofrenning. Customers there were so happy they were able to witness this! I was able to film the whole thing.
I’m continuing with my same middle school mentee (great kid!) this year and had him take this photo on Thursday of me with (left) Northfield Middle School mentoring coordinator Margaret Colangelo and District Mentoring Specialist Cheryl Strike.
And tomorrow (Sunday, Oct. 4), the Mentoring Partnership of Minnesota will be providing a mentor training, 4-6 pm at St Olaf. (See the flyer (PDF), but there has been a room change. The training will still be in Buntrock Commons but in Room 144. That room is on the second floor, down the hall and around the corner from the snack bar.)
5th Bridge Executive Director Candy Taylor and her husband Cliff created this volunteer thank-you display in the lobby of the Northfield Middle School, honoring this year’s Rock ‘N Roll Revival volunteers. It reads:
5th Bridge salutes the hundreds of people who have made this production possible… directors, choreographers, set designers, set builders, hair dressers, costume sewers, costume helpers, program designers, local business sponsors, concession volunteers, ushers, ticket agents, sound and lighting crew members, band members, cast members, refreshment volunteers, parent and community volunteers, and many, many more! Amazing things happen when people share their gifts and talents. Visit www.5thbridge.org to learn about local service opportunities.
