Our meetings are the second Saturday of each month from 10:00am- 11:30am.
Please see the “Programs” section of our website for information about topics and locations of the meetings.
Throughout March, look for the daily biographies of women who embody the Women’s History Month theme of “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace & Nonviolence” in the La Crosse Tribune! These are researched and written by branch member Lois Gilbert.
