Share the fun -- and your ideas -- at NCO annual meeting

It's that time of year...time to celebrate our accomplishments, thank our friends and plan our next adventures.

And you're all invited along for the fun. That's right. It's time for the Northfield Citizens Online annual meeting, Thursday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. at Carlson Capital Management. Paying members are special guests, but everyone who reads the site is welcome. No reservations are required, but we'd love to know if you're coming so we can plan refreshments. (We don't want to blow our tiny budget on cookies and then have to eat them all ourselves.)

You can come and meet and vote on our new board members, hear our plans for the new year -- and add your ideas and opinions. (Be warned that people with ideas get to help implement them.)

We'll have reports available in writing and will post them online after the meeting, so we can keep the business meeting short. We'll be around to show you how to post a story or join an online discussion.
But most of the evening will be devoted to fun, good conversation and a good start to 2007.

Random acts of reporting

Good morning!

I was just updating pages for Northfield.org when I saw this breathtaking sunrise out my window. I risked the wrath of the cat by moving her from my lap, then shot this photo and e-mailed it to Northfield.org.

Total elapsed time: 3 minutes, including apology to the cat and time to find the photo card gizmo for my laptop. That's how easy it is to share something on Northfield.org.
