Nonprofits and community groups are invited to a conversation and workshop on local grant funding and resources for organizations in Eveleth and on the Iron Range.
The event starts at 3 p.m. June 20 in the Conference Room of the Mesabi Trail Building, 111 Station 44 Road, Eveleth. There is no fee for admission, but those who are interested are asked to register in advance at http://bit.ly/evelethworkshop or at dsacommunityfoundation.com, the website of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
