When you make notations in your calendar to attend the various study groups entered on our website calendar, please check carefully for the exact day of the week, place, and time.Several of the facilities we have consistently used in the past have received grants for renovations, and we occasionally use other locations to continue to offer certain study groups. This is an ongoing situation with the libraries and will continue for some time.
We try to alert you where there is a change at each calendar entry, but want to stress that you check carefully so that you go to the right location on the right day and at the correct time.
Unfortunately, this is beyond our control, and we are trying to make it as convenient as possible. Please bear with us as we manage this juggling act, and continue to enjoy the various programs offered.

MWI thanks Carol Brier and Carole Metzger for all their efforts in presenting so many wonderful programs on our various presidents, their wives and their families. Over the years we have anticipated and looked forward to learning about the surprise candidates they selected to discuss, and we were never disappointed. However, due to their other MWI commitments, they have stepped down and we are offering members an opportunity to be involved with this study group. Pleasecontact Marilin Smolin or Estelle Barton if you would like to lead this Study Group.
