FWRC secretary Al Burke, WB9SSE, announced that the club has booked the main, downtown branch of the Allen County Public Library, 900 Library Plaza, for general meetings Thursday, October 15; Tuesday, November 17; and Tuesday, December 15. Note that these dates are different that those originally planned for these meetings and on different nights that the club’s traditional Friday meetings, because the space was not available on the normal dates.
The club booked Rooms A and B, which have a combined, normal seating capacity of 126 and will therefore accommodate at least 30 people with required social distancing. Members who enter the building from the Library Plaza entrance will bear to the left to find the meeting room. Those who park under the building will arise at the west entrance and will walk toward the Library Plaza entrance and turn right.
In a separate communication, FWRC president Carole Burke wrote that meetings will begin promptly at 7 p.m., because the building closes at 9 p.m.
Parking is convenient under the building and is free to library card holders. Otherwise it’s $1.00 per hour. Library cards are free to anyone who can document Allen County residency. Parking is also free to card holders in the library’s surface lots.
