Also, our own Lenny Tvedten, MCHS Executive Director, interviewed Peter Gorton about his quest and our upcoming event.
The MCHS is gearing up for a very busy April that will feature many great events such as a PM Exchange, the presentations on John Donaldson by Peter Gorton, our Annual Card Party, and much, much more! Be on the lookout for details surrounding these events!
