I asked Dan Freeman, this year’s chair of Northfield’s 4th of July Hometown Celebration, who should be thanked for helping to make it happen. Dan wrote:
Hey Griff, here are the names of people who chaired various events for the 4th:
- Ed Kulhman and Mary Titus: the 4th Flea Market
- Hayes Scriven and Scott Elmer: the Northfield Historical Society Hospitality Tent and Clean up.
- Father Denny Dempsey and Cindy Brown: the Northfield Girl Scouts and the St. Dominic Catholic Church Kids’ Carnival.
- Lynn Ziegler: the Northfield Dance Academy on the Showmobile
I think that’s about it but there were many other people who stepped in to help. Obviously, all the sponsors are the reason we even have a 4th of July Celebration in this town. Finally, thanks to you for recording in pictures this wonderful day in Northfield’s history.
The photos above (center, right) are from the back page, 12A, of the July 2 Northfield News, listing those businesses, organzations, and individuals who provided sponsorship dollars this year.
Of course, Dan Freeman had something to do with all this. Thanks, Danny.
