Note: Due to renovation at our normal location, we will be holding the Sept 11 meeting at the ComCor Residential check-in facility at 2723 N. Nevada

Because of traffic flow, you have to enter the facility location from the rear if coming from the North. For those use to coming to the 3615 Roberts Road location, you’ll head South and cross Fillmore St. then go two blocks to Polk St. and make a left turn. If you-re used to coming on Fillmore from I-25, you’ll take a right at Fillmore instead of a left.  Polk St. is just past the Navajo Hogan restaurant which will be on your left.

Coming from the South on Nevada, you’ll go past Penrose Hospital and make a right turn immediately after crossing the railway bridge which is two blocks past the hospital.  If you miss the turn, you’ll turn right at Polk St., just past Murphy’s Tavern.
