Photo album: Volunteer demolition crew saves Northfield Historical Society $9,000

A crew of Northfield Historical Society board members, staff, and volunteers took on a nasty task this morning, cleaning out the demolition debris from a second floor office of the Scriver Building.  Their efforts saved the Taking Northfield to the Next Level campaign $9,000 in renovation costs.

Among the crew: NHS Board members Debby Larsen, Scott Richardson, Jodi Lawson, and Heather Scott; store manager Chip DeMann; and Brad Ness, former DJJD chair and most recently, Lena’s main squeeze, Ole.

  1. Thanks for this, Griff! Good for them! And thanks for the link to last year’s Ole and Lena pictures at Froggy Bottoms. DVDs are still available of that one at NHS, with DVDS from Ole and Lena Upstairs at the Rueb from April 15 coming.

    Good job everybody! Just so you know, Trip DeMann (with help from Chip, Hayes, and one of Trip’s friend) spent about a week taking all of that plaster off the wall and removing lathe, woodwork, door frames and so forth, getting all the garbage ready for the bucket brigade on Saturday. On Easter Sunday morning Chip DeMann and Trip are down there continuing the demolition to save the Historical Society $9,000.
