This presentation will be held in the Foresthill Odd Fellows Hall. For parking turn left on Soap St. and park in the area of the closed Ore Cart Restaurant. The entrance to the Hall is on the side street behind the restaurant, up the ramp to the 2nd floor Hall. Many of us have never seen the hall and are curious as to what it looks like so this would be a good time beyond getting to know something about lessening our stress loads. Hope to see you there!
