Celebration of Wales  October 27

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Web and Blog Sites

WASNC is still developing its website and electronic presence.  Over the last few months, the Society has built its platforms, basically this site and the sister blog site, and is now seeking more content for both.  Check back on a regular basis.

WASNC’s Digital media is run by Terry Escott as part of the society’s modernization plans.

Membership News

WASNC is seeking new members and over the next few weeks the Society will be launching online membership.

In the interim, you can still join the Society by contacting the Membership Director.

Longer term plans….

sample imageWhen you consider that just the nine counties California’s San Francisco Bay Area alone are bigger than Wales itself, you can imagine how hard it is to get people together.  Therefore, the Society’s long term plan is that through its activities, membership and digital media, WASNC will be the premier source of Welsh information in Northern California, providing links to other Welsh-related websites and organizations that will enable everyone to explore their Welsh heritage.
