Did you know that a Supreme Court seat is the only statewide race on this year’s primary ballot? This rarely happens—and it could deter many from going to the polls on primary day, August 9. The Minnesota Bar Association is providing information about the candidates here: http://www.mnbar.org/public/judicial-candidate-information#.V5QAgdArIkj. In addition, there are 2 seats on the 3rd District Court.

In an effort to provide strong, effective programs, the Northfield Area Family YMCA is conducting a community needs assessment. We want to hear from you.
Based on this community needs assessment, the Y, in partnership with other organizations, will design and deliver new programs and services that address critical issues in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The focus is to identify needs that are not currently addressed in our community.
