Pittsburg hosting next quarterly meeting

Please join us at our next quarterly meeting in Pittsburg on Saturday, June 12th.

Agenda and Schedule:

Coffee at 9:30 am

Pittsburg, Kansas.  Room 316 in Hughes Hall on the campus of Pittsburg State University.  It is the second building on the south side of the street next to the electronic sign on Broadway.  There is an elevator at the north end of the building.  Parking is available on the north side and south side of Hughes Hall.

If people are going to come in the night before I recommend the Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn Express on Highway 69 north of the downtown area of Pittsburg.  I cannot recommend the Econo-lodge.

We will plan to have lunch together at some nearby restaurant and visit the PSU Veterans Memorial.  It is on the east side of campus and is quite impressive.  It has a half scale model of the Vietnam Memorial wall, an eternal flame in a pool, and pavers with the names of veterans.
