NCDN Receives Grant from Cooperative Community Fund to Support the 2018 Night on the Common

Northfield, Vt. (November 29, 2017)  – Northfield Community Development Network (NCDN) is pleased to announce it has received a $250 grant from the Cooperative Community Fund of the Hunger Mountain Co-op. These funds will support the third annual Northfield Night on the Common in summer 2018.

Begun in 2016, the Northfield Night on the Common is an annual summer event that seeks to bring the community together while showcasing different aspects of Northfield to resident and visitors. The third annual Night on the Common intends to showcase the food and beverage producers that make our community unique. Known nationally for its craft food and drinks, Vermont is a destination for agri-tourism and foodies. Northfield aims to celebrate its piece of the local food industry.

"I'm excited about showing off our local food producers, who are crucial in growing Northfield," says Carolyn Stevens, NCDN Treasurer, who saw the grant application while shopping at the Co-op. Growing Northfield's reputation as a place to visit, to live, and to do business is a key to NCDN's mission of community and economic development. Previous Northfield Night on the Common events have showcased the Area Wide Plan and non-profits and community groups.

The Community Foundation awards annual grants through a competitive application and review process. NCDN received the grant at the Hunger Mountain Co-op annual meeting on November 2. Information about the third annual Night on the Common will be announced on
