The St. David's Society of Minnesota was formed to preserve the heritage and culture of the Welsh immigrants to Minnesota. To these ends, St. David's Society members celebrate and cultivate all things Welsh - in literature, history, music, dance, art or ideas, traditional and contemporary.
Our current board members welcome your inquiries about the organization - our history and our activities. Both Judith Warner (president) and Ilene Alexander (vice president) welcome hearing your questions about and interest in the Society and the Welsh in - and beyond - Minnesota.
Please join us on 23 April for a Prynhawn Llawen - or, joyful afternoon - featuring hymns, folk tunes, readings, and word play. The April Newsletter includes information about the event, as does the Annual Events blog post.
