Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are still not able to safely gather in large numbers at this time. Our monthly programs (2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. CST) have been moved to virtual presentations. Click on the link to our YouTube page where our last four monthly program demonstrations are available in case you were not able to attend. We hope you will be able to attend our next virtual monthly program with demo artist. Thank you and we look forward to when we can meet again in person. Vic Perlbachs - MNWS President
