NAM Saturday Programs

The Native American Museum in Dobbs Park hosts one Saturday program each month. We want to thank Kim and Bob DisPennett for five years of faithful service with our Native American Flute Circle. We wish them well in their new home in Florida. The Flute Circle will be discontinued until further notice.
