Week of October 19-23, 2020


Staying Connected

The DWC Governing Board misses seeing you all and wants to stay connected during this crazy time…..so, “Bubble Groups” (for lack of a better name ) have been formed. 
Each Board member has a designated group and will contact you very soon, either by phone, email, or card.  We’re anxious to keep in touch with you about activities, events and other important matters.  We welcome ideas from you about staying connected, so please feel free to share.


Volunteers needed!
October 22 from 9-11 a.m.

Marisa Hoogenakker and the Volunteer Committee have signed up for a
shift sorting food at Second Harvest (inside) on Thursday, October 22 from 9-11 a.m. 
Wear your volunteer shirts and masks.  Some lifting is
required, but not much.  They have a maximum of 12 at a time, so Marissa is keeping a list of who can make it.
Please e-mail her your name and phone number. 
If you can’t make this one, we will probably do another in a few weeks.

A Message from Lucy Kragness and the Camera Club

A photo walk on Wednesday, October 21

All are welcome to join us as we explore the Western Waterfront Trail on Wednesday, October 21 at 1 pm. (Weather forecast looked pretty grim on Thursday so we are exploring on a wild Wednesday!)
Depending how the trails look, we will either walk on the gentle rolling trail along the St Louis River or on the paved Willard Munger Trail. Note the day and time change! We are starting an hour earlier as the
days get shorter.
We will meet in the parking lot behind the Willard Munger Inn off Grand Avenue.
From downtown Duluth, take I-35 south to the Grand Avenue (on the left exit 251B).
Travel on Grand Avenue to Pulaski Street by the Willard Munger Inn.
Turn left on Pulaski and cross the railroad tracks to the parking lot on the left.
