NLAC Event Photos

The Community Book Discussion, in conjunction with the Cavalier County Library, was held in April. We were so wrapped up in discussion that we unfortunately didn’t get any pictures! Thank you to those who read the book and joined the discussion. Thank you to Michelle Sauer for facilitating, and Shannon Nuelle for organizing.

After a brief hiatus, the band is back in action! Rehearsals have begun and we are excited for our summer performances. The band is lead by director Lane Lindseth, and made up of members in the surrounding area.

The Art Journaling class with Mindi Lill wrapped up, and participants had a great time creating their very own journals from scratch. This was a 5-week class. Thank you for joining us! Thank you to Mindi for instructing.
