Quarterly Meeting Directions & Agenda — Dec. 5 2009

Our next  meeting is in the Contemporary Studies Room at College Hill United Methodist Church. 
CHUM is located at 2930 E. 1st street.  It’s two blocks west of 1st and Hillside. 
The most direct route from the east would be to take Kellogg to the Hillside exit.  Turn right on Hillside and go about four blocks to Douglas.  Turn left and go to Chautauqua and turn right and go one block to 1st.  The parking lot is behind the church.  If you’re coming from Newton, you would go South on I-135 to the lst-2nd street exit.  Go left onto 1st street and go to Chautauqua and turn left.  The church is on that corner with parking behind.  The CS room is in the basement.
We will adjourn for lunch at 12:15.  We have a reservation at the Mediterranean Cafe across from Town East, in front of the Target store.  Everyone will be responsible for their own choice and bill.  They have a wide range from hamburgers and salads to fancy grilled fish.  I have invited the Paraguayan students at WSU to join us.  We will pick up their tab.
