We are excited at the news that our monthly programs will now be offered with options for both in-person (whenever possible) and live zoom attendance! In-person meetings will be held at the Hopkins Center for the Arts at 1111 Main Street in downtown Hopkins on the second Thursday of the month. Look for updates here, on the MNWS Facebook page, and your email. Click on the link to our You Tube page where our last four monthly program demonstrations are available to view. Thanks, Vic Perlbachs, President MNWS
