Construction of the Northfield Area Veterans Memorial in Riverside Lions Park is complete. At right, Jeff Anderson, of Anderson Memorials in Austin, designed the entire site. He told me that there will be one more addition to the site before the Nov. 11 dedication: a bronze soldier, place just to the left of center.
See the dozen hi-res photos in the Northfield Area Veterans Memorial photo album. Photos are in three sizes: thumb, medium, and large. Click the medium photos to see the large.
10/27 update: I added two more night photos to the album

This organization, Northfield Citizens Online, which maintains Northfield.org, will hold its annual meeting this Wednesday at the Northfield Public Library at 7pm. This is your opportunity to come see this organization at work and possibly become a part of it. Northfield.org is a growing and increasingly interesting Northfield organization. There may be one of you *out there* who would enjoy participating as an actor instead of as the audience. If that's the case let me tell you about what's going on and how you could participate.

The Kitchen has a new name: Bittersweet Eatery and Gathering Place. And this morning, I discovered that they carry Italian gelato. In the photo, The Archer House's Katherine Baty (right) gets a chocolate gelato fix from Kathy Akre. Their hours are the same, they still offer free wi-fi, but new decor is evident and couches/comfy seating is on the way for the middle room.
