*** Message from the FACA board ***

Due to safety concerns about the COVID-19 virus, these events have been cancelled:
  -   March 22nd FACA piano recital program featuring Gail Olszewski at DAC
  -   March 22nd Minna Canth event at the Norway House sponsored by the Minneapolis / Kuopio partnership

The board is working on ideas to engage the FACA membership during this period of "social distancing!"
Stay Safe Everyone!
