Two area teams of 24 people each (one team from Northfield; the other from Northfield/Dundas/Bridgewater) attended the Blandin Community Leadership Program (BCLP) this year (I blogged the application process here. I applied but didn’t get selected.)
But other than an April commentary in the Northfield News by Northfield Councilor Erica Zweifel, these teams seem to be invisible. No published photos on the interwebs, no story in the Northfield News like the one in 2004, Residents complete Blandin retreat, no blog posts of photo from the retreats or subsequent follow-up meetings.
So I was surprised to see Mary Jo Cristofaro write in her Northfield.org blog post that the "Blandin Foundations’ Leadership Team is pleased to sponsor an evening with Richard Heinberg, Friday November 12th, 6:30pm at the Northfield Ballroom."
And so I’m curious:
- How was the decision made to sponsor this community event?
- What other activities are people on the teams involved in?
- Who are the people who attended this year? Group photos?
- Who are the local leaders/organizers?
