Winter Refreshments

Lindsborg winter refreshments are being made for you.  
Winter serves up the chance to regroup, restore and explore.  It’s time to try something new.
To that end, Small World Gallery, the Lindsborg Community Library and other Lindsborg businesses and organizations are in the process if building a new series of classes and gatherings focused on January through March. These low-key moments are intended to bring relaxation as well as open doors.


9-11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 19
