Meeting Room: The auditorium is in the southwest corner of the park adjacent to Kensington Rd. where it turns and become Beverly Ave.

Meetings begin at 7:30 sharp with a little business, and then our main presentation. Refreshments are served afterward. Please leave your coyotes and bobcats at home, however much they whine to come.

Parking:  Parking was easy to find for our December 6 meeting. There is a small lot just west of the auditorium, but you’ll probably have to find street parking, which appears to be free after 6pm. Make sure you check the signs – don’t get a ticket! This is a mostly residential neighborhood, so parking may get tight when the locals get home from work.
