This will be our second in-person meeting of the month. This is our first meeting at the Elks Lodge in Melbourne. We visited the facility and it is very clean and spacious. It is located at 211 Nieman Ave., Melbourne FL 32901, which is the first left turn off of Babcock St just after you cross the railroad tracks. It is east of the Melbourne Airport. If you know where the old County Courthouse is located, the Elks Lodge is immediately south of that facility. We will send out detailed directions before the meeting.
The Elks Lodge in Melbourne.
Here are details about the NEW MELBOURNE MEETING
Date: MONDAY, JULY 19th (NOT TUESDAY!!!!)
Location : Melbourne Elks Lodge
Address: 211 Nieman Avenue
Melbourne FL 32901
DIRECTIONS: If you are coming from the South (Malabar, Palm Bay, parts of Melbourne, etc.) or beachside on the Melbourne Causeway, take the shortest route to Babcock St. Go north past Apollo Ave and cross the railroad tracks. Nieman Avenue is the very first Left turn just across the tracks.
(HOWEVER, AS OF THIS POST, ROAD CONSTRUCTION ON BABCOCK HAS THE LEFT TURN ONTO NIEMAN BLOCKED. CONTINUE ON BABCOCK TO THE FIRST LIGHT AND TURN LEFT. FOR EASE, GO CLEAR TO NIEMAN AND TURN LEFT TO BACKTRACK TO THE LODGE
ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE IS GO NORTH ON US-1 AND TURN LEFT ON BREVARD AVE, WHICH IS ADJACENT TO THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP ON THE SOUTH SIDE. GO TO NEIMAN AVENUE AND TURN LEFT). Easy detours.
If you are coming from North of the Melbourne Airport or North Beachside from any causeway Eau Gallie and north, turn onto US-1 South. As you approach the curve just before Kelly Ford, veer to the right on Magnolia Avenue that goes directly in front of the dealership. Stay on that road through at least one Stop Sign. Magnolia turns into Nieman Avenue.
No matter how you get there, continue on Nieman to the Lodge, just South of the old Courthouse/Annex on the same side as the courthouse. Parking is on the southwest side of the building and the entrance is under a covered portico. There are other doors, but use the one under the covered portico. Sounds complicated, but it is very easy to find. There is a large sign by the road and we will put out the blue and white arrow signs we have.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CANT MAKE THE IN-PERSON MEETINGS, WE WILL TRY ZOOM CONNECTED WITH THE IN-PERSON MEETINGS. WE HAVE AN UPGRADED MICROPHONE THAT APPEARS IT WILL PICK UP THE GROUP’S DISCUSSION.
