Neighbor to Neighbor: Champion Sports' Bill Brodin

Are you heading downtown Northfield to buy cleats? If you go to Champion Sports, you'll probably be helped by Bill Brodin. Bill has worked at Champion Sports for years. Here’s the scoop on Bill:

Bill Brodin, NHS ’87, was born and raised in Northfield. His mother graduated from NHS in the 1950's when the old middle school was the high school. Bill has one older brother, Dan, and one older sister, Beth. He plays golf but his favorite sport to watch is hockey. Bill's father used to be a hockey referee here in town.

Bill says the coolest thing he's ever seen in his life was game seven of the 1991 World Series. It was the loudest experience he's ever heard and outside the dome everyone was "slapping hands and acting crazy".

(New) Chairman's Corner

Doug B.Greetings from the new Board Chair of Northfield Citizens Online. I've served on the board for three and a half years, but just a few weeks ago our former chair (and current vice-chair), Bruce Morlan, passed the reins of leadership over to me. And what a fortnight it's been!

I don't want to spend a lot of time talking about the new look and functionality of Northfield.org, but I would like to say one thing about the change: it's huge. At this point it may just look like we moved a few things around (and maybe you take issue with where we moved them...let us know!), but stick around for awhile and you'll start to feel the fundamental shift that's underway. And keep this phrase in mind: "Power to the people!"

I'd really just like to use this "bully pulpit" to share a few of my recent observations about Northfield and NCO...
