Meeting Announcement

Thursday March 7, 2019

Venue

Centennial Library (Bells Corners), starting at 18:30

This is the same location as December 2018. Again, note the location, time, and date. We will be in this location for The first half of 2019. The Centennial Library is at 3870 Old Richmond Rd. in Bells Corners. Bus routes 88, 97, and 256 are listed as servicing that area. Note that we will be done by 20:20, as this library closes earlier than the other location and we need to restore the room to the configuration it was in when we arrived.
