Bank Ground Breaking

Monday was the ground breaking ceremony for Community National Bank’s new facility on south Highway #3 in Northfield. The bank invited Chamber of Commerce members, former Directors and a variety of people involved in the Northfield community. With a tent shelter from the wind and Ole rolls from the Ole Store, everyone had a great time visiting and congratulating bank personnel.

President Don Kuehnast unveiled a drawing of the planned bank facility. At three stories in height, it will be a substantial building on the corner across from Furlong Motors.

I am pleased that Northfield continues to have a strong business community. When I’m not working at Northfield Construction Company I work at my “other job” as a State Representative to keep the Minnesota economy healthy. One of the best ways to do that is to see that jobs are being created. A major expansion such as the new Community National Bank increases job opportunities for many people, adds to the real estate tax revenue and generally shows to the world that Northfield is doing well and is a solid community.

A big thank you to eveyone at Community National Bank for planning this fine new bank and good luck with your project.
