Iowa Welsh Society - Cymdeithas Gymreig Iowa

The Iowa Welsh Society began in 1985 in conjunction with the location of the annual Welsh language course sponsored by Cymdeithas Madog at Central College in Pella that summer.  It has continued as a happy communication among people who are of Welsh heritage or who have an interest in things Welsh.

There are approximately 110 members of the Iowa Welsh Society.  We meet two or three times each year in various locations in the state.  Previous meetings have been in Ames, Lucas, Des Moines, Cotter, Williamsburg, Ottumwa, Pella and Wales, Iowa.  Newsletters are produced prior to each meeting.

Annual dues are $15 for individuals or families.  Membership is from January 1 through December 31.
