SNARL Seminar Series:

PLEASE NOTE - Due to the restrictions on social gathering to prevent the spread of COVID-19 we have cancelled our SNARL Spring Seminar Series for 2020.  We will invite all speakers to present next spring in 2021.  We hope that you all stay healthy, and look forward to seeing you at SNARL in spring 2021!

We welcome you every Tuesday evening this spring to our free public seminars. Seminars are from 7-8 PM and doors open at 6:30. All seminars will be held in the Page Center at SNARL – 1016 Mount Morrison Road.

Small tasters of food and drink will be provided by local businesses. Please arrive early to park, secure a seat, snack and mingle. Seminars are geared to adult audiences, however young people are encouraged to attend and well-behaved children are welcome.
