Open to all ages and free.

We invite you to join us for our monthly meeting, held the SECOND WEDNESDAY of each month at the SLO Senior Center, located on the southeast corner of Mitchell Park in San Luis Obispo, at the corner of Santa Rosa Street and Buchon Street.

Our meetings begin at 7pm and typically run about two hours. During this time we conduct club business, do Show and Tell, break for refreshments, and have some sort of program: demonstration, tutorial, video or guest speaker.
