On December 8, 2016, city employees gathered together to show their Christmas spirit. Each year, members of the City Wellness Committee work to find ways employees can give back to the community. This year, in addition to monetary donations to the Northfield Area United Way, gifts for children were purchased as part of the Community Action Center’s Christmas Sharing Program. We hope this season will be merrier for all Northfield children and families.
