Meeting Place Changed to VFW Post 1464

For Calendar Year 2019, we have changed the location of our meeting places.  See the Calendar Tab for the updates.  Instead of meeting downtown on Mission we will be meeting at VFW Post 1464’s Bingo Hall at 2902 E. Diamond Ave, Spokane, WA.  It is on the corner of E. Diamond and N. Regal St. in the Hillyard area.  A “google” picture of the location is in the Calendar Tab, i.e. “X” marks the spot.
