LiveTimeline: 5/20/2021 Northfield Township Parks & Rec Board meeting


The clickable timestamps and labels below match the demarcations on the timeline in the video player above.

Clicking them takes you, the viewing audience, directly to the annoted point in the meeting video.  This cannot 

be done on the LiveStream account.  That's why I do it here instead, at an enormous personal cost.
