Monthly Meetings

Our monthly meetings are open to the public and are free to attend. We often have guest speakers at our meetings that cover a wide range of topics. They are held at 7pm the second Monday of every month at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center, Building 5 Auditorium, 400 Fort Hill Avenue Canandaigua, NY 14424. Club officers meet prior to the meeting to review club business, this is open to the general membership. All presenters and announcements must meet with club officers 15 minutes prior to the start of the meeting to review their message and approve it.

 

Directions - Click here.

Fort Hill Avenue runs east off from Main St/Rte 332. It is a T intersection. There is a light at the intersection which is normally a flashing Yellow unless traffic is coming out of Fort Hill onto 332 or Traffic coming South on 332 is turning left into Fort Hill. Once you have turned east onto Fort Hill go all the way to the end and you will go through the gates into the VA grounds. Fort Hill ends in the VA. As you come through the gates bear to your right and Building 5 will be on your left with parking on the right. Park and walk over to the building. The entrance to the building is on the western end.

From time to time, the Auditorium is booked and we must go to the pavilion on the VA's grounds. Click here for directions to that.
