The Danebod Folk School is sponsoring a Virtual Folk Meeting experience for 2020. This opportunity comes to you as a result of the Folk School Campus being closed this summer due to the COVID-19 concerns.
In an effort to sustain the campus through the 2020 season and keep Danebod in your thoughts, the Folk Meeting Committee has created a virtual opportunity. You can access the web site at danebodfolkmeeting.org. You must register to be a part of this event.
Included in the programming are the following opportunities:
Wednesday, August 19
10:00 a.m. Practice a ZOOM session, log in with your URL and provided password.
7:00 p.m. Music from The World of Song and a story by Erik Hansen

and Danebod Pastor Gena Maria Koeberl welcomes you virtually to Danebod.
10:00 a.m. Professor Doug Simon presents “The US Constitution in
Contemporary Society, Part II”
2:00 p.m. Erin Rupp presents “Pollinators in Context”
7:00 p.m. Pastor Angel Denker presents “Finding Hope in a Divided Country”
Friday, August 21

Our speakers are, for the most part, familiar with online university classroom experiences. Jerry and I participated in a successful on-line SMSU history class this spring. A suggestion to enhance audio is to use head phones on your device.
Remember this is an opportunity to support the Danebod campus in 2020 while connecting with the larger world. Please visit our website danebodfolkmeeting.org for details and registration information.
