The Dunn County Chapter stresses musical excellence, good fellowship, and community involvement. All men who enjoy singing are invited to visit one of our Chapter meetings and discover that there’s nothing like an evening of barbershop harmony to chase the cares of the day…and set a fellow right. Meetings are held from 7:00pm-9:30pm each Tuesday evening at the Colfax Lutheran Church in Colfax, WI. For more information, or to arrange transportation, call (Bloomer 568-3668, Colfax 962-3038, Durand/Rock Falls/Mondovi 875-4672, or Menomonie 235-9377).
