We can’t get the crepes food truck this year, but Crêpes à la Cart is still going to provide our lunch. Pre-order your crêpes here.

New Venue: Rogers Memorial Chapel

We’re looking forward to a new venue this year, the Myra Clare Rogers Memorial Chapel at 1229 Broadway (map), with a larger and more open lecture room, with room for our sale and information tables right at the lecture hall entrance. It’s also got a lovely shaded outdoor green space where we’ll enjoy lunch. We’re really excited about this space, but be warned that street parking on Broadway is the only convenient parking. Ride-sharing encouraged! There should be sufficient street parking, but you might have to walk a bit.
