Thanksgiving Turkey Trot is community’s unofficial homecoming
The Northfield Rotary Turkey Trot has become Northfield’s unofficial homecoming event for the 1000-plus runners and walkers who participate each year.
Now in its 16th year, the 5K run/walk is a Thanksgiving tradition for many Northfield households, a “must-do” for those who want to connect with old friends and neighbors and be reminded that Northfield is always home.
Rob Bierman, chair of Rotary’s Turkey Trot Committee, said this event has become one of the community’s signature events.

"Using, Misusing, and Ignoring Political Information" was the subject of the September 24, 2016 meeting of the Northfield-Cannon Falls League of Women Voters.
