Due to the COVID-19 emergency, Monticello Women of Today is not meeting in person at our usual meeting place (Community United Methodist Church), according to directives of the Centers for Disease Control and State of Minnesota. We have been holding online meetings most months in place of our general meetings on the 1st Thursday of the month. Other in-person events may be held outdoors or postponed until we can meet inside again.
Monticello Women of Today met at Ellison Park (east shelter) on Thursday, August 6th and hope to meet outdoors in the Park again on September 3rd and possibly the 1st Saturday of October. Please check our website for more news.
