Fran: As this is our first time to Hampton Place I thought I should check the address. We can certainly get to the street off Wesbrooke, but there appear to be several residences/buildings there on Hampton Place.
I heard from one of the members at the annual dinner that it was the Chatham building that had the Lounge for the meetings. It looks like the second building in from Wesbrooke on the north side. Would it have a number? Is there any entry code required for access?
Looking forward to the meeting,
Roy and Gail

Fran: Just a PS for the meeting Tuesday. Should we bring something for the group to eat?
