                                 LOCATIONS AND DIRECTIONS


TO WESTFIELD CENTER    FROM MASS PIKE (I-90): Get off at Exit 3 (Westfield).  At the end

 of the ramp turn right; this is US202.  Follow this (south) 1.7 mi. to the green in Westfield Center.

FROM WEST SPRINGFIELD:  Starting at the intersection of US 5 (Riverdale Rd.) and US 20 (Park St.)

 follow US 20 west. After a total of about 7.5 mi.you will be at the green in the center of Westfield.


From the center of Westfield (see above) take US 202 south.  You will follow the west side of the green

 then take a right turn away from the green and proceed west on Court St.  Stay on Court St. when US 202

 takes a left.  At about 0.3 miles on the right you will see the old State Normal School, the precursor to

Westfield State College.  Court Street becomes Western Ave. shortly after it passes Noble Hospital.  At about

 1.8 mi. note Dickinson Pl. on your right, then at 1.9 mi the entrance to Stanley Park on your left.  At 2.4 miles

 you will come to the Commuter Parking Lot for Westfield State College.  [Do not turn into the Conference

 Parking lot just before it.]  Go to the far end of the parking lot.  The New Residence Hall is the first and lighter

 of the two brick dorms you’ll see.  Our meeting is at the far left in the rear wing on ground level.  There should

 be signs for the parking lot and the meeting.   FOR HANDICAPPED PARKING: Continue past the

 commuter lot to the main entrance of the College.  Once inside, turn right then bear left.  At the stop sign

 turn right.  There are parking spaces behind Savignano Auditorium which you may use.  The meeting site

 is visible ahead of these spaces, which are closer than the commuter lot.


Coming from West Springfield, when you reach the central green, do not turn left with US 202 or right with US 20,

 but go straight and you’ll be on School Street.   Coming from the Mass Pike, when you reach the

 central green you’ll see the sign for School Street on your right at the light.  Turn right.  The restaurant is about

 halfway along School Street on the right.  There is parking just before or just after the restaurant on the same side.


Described in a previous Newsletter, the Athenaeum, a unique library and museum, is on the west side on the

 town green.  It is open Friday and Saturday, 8:30 Am to 5 PM.   The church is directly opposite the Athenaeum,

 on the east side of the green.  Their Sunday service is at 10 AM.


                                               LET’S STAY IN TOUCH


    Every time we send out a mailing a few envelopes or e-mails come back.  We always try to redirect them but

 sometimes even that is unsuccessful.  If you are reading this, we evidently have your correct current e-mail or

 postal address.  However, if sometime in the future either of these changes, please notify the DFA of the change.

  The most efficient way to do that is to inform our membership clerk, Beth Landolina at 82 Evergreen Dr.,

 Tolland, CT 06084; bethl0719@sbcglobal.net .
