Eureka United Methodist Church, 520 Del Norte St
Corner of F & Del Norte Streets
in Eureka

Closed on August 15

In September, October, and November we will be meeting in the Fellowship Hall at the United Methodist Church in Eureka as we no longer have access to HSU. The address is 520 Del Norte Street and is located at the corner of Del Norte and F Streets with the Church facing F Street. You may park either on F Street (in front of the church), or in the Church's parking lot which is accessed from G Street. To access the parking lot, drive to G Street and enter a long driveway (next to a long hedge) which is directly behind the church. The door to the Fellowship Hall will be on your right as you enter the breezeway. If you park on F Street, go through the breezeway and the door will be on your left. This is a large room which will allow us more flexibility in the type of workshops we can offer. (See Change of Date on page 3 for meeting date change for October)
