Venue Notes

We meet at the Knights of Columbus in North Arlington

You will find two buildings. First is an old stone mansion--a house. The second is a brick building that looks like it might be a school. The brick building is NOT where we meet. We DO meet in the stone mansion.

Just come in the front door and up the stairs. Be carefull; the steps are steep. 

We're in the room at the top of the stairs.

Please park in the LOWER parking lot. Do NOT park up near the building.
