The Nisswa Women’s Club will meet at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 16, at Drummond Winery in Brainerd.

Ron Miles, a local naturalist and historian, will share the history of the Ox Cart Trails, which were an important part of the early transportation system between St. Paul and the Red River Valley. Goods and passengers were hauled by ox cart along the Mississippi, through the Pillager Gap and northwest through the Red River Valley.

Miles has made numerous presentations on this page in history.

Candy Barnack will lead the inspiration, and Karen DeVries will preside over the annual meeting and election of officers.

Drummond Winery will serve lunch. The luncheon charge is $20. The wait staff at the winery will not be masked, so the club strongly advises that only vaccinated guests attend this luncheon and that they wear a mask, removing it only while eating.
