Our meetings are held at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 5001 Hixson Pike, Hixson, TN 37343.  The entrance to the church is right across from the Northgate  Mall entrance on Hixson Pike.  From Highway 153, get on Hixson Pike North.  Turn left onto Trinity Drive.  The church will be on the right.  Proceed up the church driveway to the church parking lot.  Park in front of the church and come in the rear entrance.  There will be someone at the door to direct you.   

This is a great location with lots of parking and no steps.  There is even a covered area at the entrance to use in case the weather is rainy.

For the month of July only we will meet at our old location - The North River Civic Center behind Northgate Shopping Mall.

Regular monthly meetings are held the fourth Thursday of every month except May (our annual picnic), November (Thanksgiving) and December (annual banquet).  Refreshments start at 6:30 with meetings starting promptly at 7 p.m.  Visitors are always welcome!
