WMPG Record/CD Sale postponed until spring

We hate to do this again but due to the increase in Covid-19 cases we are postponing our annual Record/CD sale until the spring. We are still accepting donations for the sale but unfortunately we just have to be careful with this and as anyone who has been knows, it gets very crowded at the sales tables. We are sorry to have to do it but better safe than sorry! We hope to see you in the spring and thanks for your understanding.
