ONLINE MEETING - The Stay-At-Home order for Minnesota is due to expire on May 4, 2020. However, based on the uncertainty if the order will be extended and potential restrictions of group meetings, we will be scheduling an online meeting. We have a special guest presenter, Russell Peters of PS Koi. Russell specializes in fine quality Japanese nishikigoi & buying trips to Japan. We will be treated to a digital tour of his facility in Thorntown, Indiana and Q&A about nishikigoi.
