For the past three years, Age Friendly Northfield Steering Committee in partnership with the City of Northfield, has been working on writing an Action Plan for how and what is needed in Northfield to be an age friendly community ensuring its residents are able to live well as they age.  The Age Friendly model has been researched and developed by AARP and the World Health Organization.

It is official!  The Action Plan is complete and a certificate from AARP and the World Health Organization proclaiming that the City of Northfield is an official Age Friendly City has been presented to Mayor Pownell.  The Action Plan is a 72 page guide with goals and objectives to address needs in 8 domains – Community Information, Health and Wellness, Housing, Outdoor Spaces and Buildings, Transportation and Streets, Social Participation, Inclusion, and Educational Opportunities, and Volunteer and Civic Engagement, and Job Opportunities.  Age Friendly Northfield has also received an AARP Community Challenge grant that we are calling the Red Chair Project.  The project provides 50 portable red chairs to be set-up at outdoor events.  The chairs will provide convenient and comfortable seating to be used by older adults and people with disabilities. These chairs will be set up front and center prior to the start of an event, making attending outdoor events so much easier

To commemorate these accomplishments and in anticipation for the many more accomplishments to be initiated to help older adults to live well, we invite you to celebrate with us with cake, ice cream and music.

Please join the Age Friendly Northfield Steering Committee members and others on FiftyNorth’s patio, September 11, 6:00 to 7:00 pm for cake, ice cream and toe tapping music. The Red Chairs will be set up.  Come be the first to test out the red chairs, and hear more about the wonderful things Age-Friendly Northfield will be doing for you and our community.

We hope to see you on September 11th on FiftyNorth’s back patio.
