Public Transportation: The nearest Metro is the Largo Town Center Metro Station. We can pick up folks at the station, but we ask that you are ready and at the station by 7:30 PM, or earlier. When you arrive, you can call my cell (202)[masked], and someone will pick you up.

Driving and Parking: The Mickey home is within a gated community.

When you arrive at the security gate, please press 0129 - which will ring the house, and you will be let in. If you have any problems, call my cell (202) 255-1005.

Please arrive on time. The movie is 2 hours, 15 minutes long, so we will make every effort to start on time. We will not be able to pick up people from the METRO once the film has started. Thank you!

    Running late just checked my gps and I will not arrive until 8:20. I am returning home because will arrive too late and do not wish to disrupt the viewing of the meeting. I should have mapquest earlier it turns out to be further than I thought. So sorry, have a great time.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
