MEETING LOCATION FOR 2015!
The Wilder Foundation has a three story covered parking ramp and a covered walkway into the building.
Meetings start at 6:30 pm
To get us out of the parking mess we will continue to meet at an alternate location for 2015. We plan to be back at the Textile Center in April only for our annual Demo & Do and for special events as noted!
Just get off 94 at the Lexington exit and go North. Turn into the driveway before White Castle.
