We mark our centennial with NWC: 100 Years and Counting, a special film by Sharon and Gary Harris. The NWC story begins with Founder Ruth Henderson in 1920 and covers the next 100 years with photos, interviews and narration featuring the Nisswa community, charities, formation of groups and fundraisers, and progressing to present day fashion shows, monthly meetings, and scholarship awards. The 20 minute film is a tribute to the many dedicated women involved with the success of the Nisswa Women's Club.
The First Draft Divas have prepared a special presentation. Also, several years of the club's History Books will be on display to browse through.
