Don’t forget that on Thursday, February 13, 7:00 p.m. at Hideaway in downtown Northfield, the Annual Meeting of Northfield Citizens Online is happening. All are welcome to attend!

President Griff Wigley and Vice President/Secretary Tracy Davis will facilitate a discussion of the history and future of Northfield.org and hope Northfielders will sit in and contribute to the conversation. Watch this space for agenda.

Almost 30 years ago, a group of Northfielders had been discussing questions like:  What's the likely impact of the Internet on the local community? How can it be used to strengthen a geographic community rather than undermining it? 

The group established the non-profit NCO and founded the website Northfield.org to create an electronic commons that strengthens the fabric of community in the greater Northfield area. Over the years, Northfield.org has played a number of roles involving many local citizens and organizations. 

The question of the impact of Internet-based technologies on the community is as relevant now as at the time of the founding of NCO, if not more so. The role Northfield.org can and should play will be part of the discussion at the February Annual Meeting.

The public is urged to attend and participate in this important dialogue. Other business will include election of the NCO board. (Registered users of Northfield.org are considered “members” for voting purposes.) We hope to see you there.
