March 2017 Club Meeting

Wilderness Road Amateur Radio Club Meeting March 7. 2017

As most of you know the WRARC will hold it’s monthly meeting at the
Methodist Church located at 119 South 3rd Street in Danville.

The building is on the north side of Walnut and west side of 3rd (on corner).
If you were to drive past the old Red Cross building it would be 3 blocks more on left (just past hospital).
There is free parking in the city parking garage after 5PM on weekdays on Saturdays (directly across 3rd st).
Enter the building from the hospital side and take the ADA ramp to the lower level.
In the picture attached you can see the ADA ramp on the far left and the parking garage on the far right.
