Theatre du Mississippi of Winona, MN

Winona State University will be presenting "The Frogs" April 10-14.
It is actually pretty amazing that this political satire written in 400 BCE can have so much to say about our current state of affairs (and with a dismaying lack of need for rewriting - only the names have been changed to point out the guilty!).

Tickets are 12$ general admission, and are available at the door or online at www.WSUArtsTickets.com

Hello, dear volunteers and friends!
The city has asked us to vacate our storage and office space in the Historic Masonic building due to the remodel and reassignment of space going on, and we have a pretty short window to do so.
We have a UHaul and a place to move into, so we would love to have folks during the day on TUESDAY MARCH 12 (yes that's tomorrow) to help load and unload the truck.
We will be starting when the truck arrives at 9:30 or so, and are scheduled to be done by 5:00.
Many hands lighten the load, so if you have an hour or two free, we would love to see you.
Please let us know if you are planning on coming later in the day, so we can notify you if we are done early, or are working at the new space.

We love our volunteers!
