November is here!

The air is crisp and the Holidays are quickly approaching!  Why not plan a little trip to Northfield to celebrate the final days of Fall?  The downtown shops have plenty of eclectic items that you won't find in the malls or in the cities, the Fireside Orchards are open 7 days a week to supply you with fresh apples and treats, and Thorn Crest Farm has dried flowers, wreaths, trees and other seasonal items in their gift shops.  There's plenty going on in town as well.  See the calendar below for a list of local entertainment and activities...
