Courtesy of Clyde Allen, we have reserved a meeting room at the Burington Hagen's on Sunday, October 22nd, 11 AM TO 1 PM (OR 2PM) .
Just take I-5 exit 230 - Hwy 20 exit and very briefly head east and take a right on Hagen Dr to the store.
To find the room, enter the Main entrance to Hagen's Grocery Store, turn left, walk down past the registers, and to your left will be the community meeting room with big glass windows and a door in at the end.
Hagen provides the community room at no charge, so in kind feel inspired to pick up hot or cold lunch and and drinks in the Hagen food and beverage area - both are welcome in the meeting room. Or, on the way out, pick up some needed groceries.
