     Upcomming Activities


  • October 18--- Chapter meeting - Compatriots, we will will meet Saturday, October 18 at 8:30 AM , at the University of Redlands, in conference Room A/B, towards the back of the cafeteria.

    We will have breakfast and a short meeting and then we will take a field trip to the Redlands Family History Center at 350 South Wabash Avenue, in Redlands, at the corner of Wabash Ave and 5th Avenue.

    To get to the Family History Center from the University, we will take Colton Avenue, (the street we walk across to get to the cafeteria from the parking lot), go East about four blocks to Wabash Ave., turn right onto Wabash Ave, and travel South about seven blocks.

    The Family history center will be on our right in the building on the corner of Wabash and 5th. However, we can turn into the back parking lot about 50 yards before the intersection. We park between the temple and the building or in the parking lot behind the building. The entrance to the building is towards the front of the parking lot, facing the white/cream temple.

    Bring some family names and dates and you might find a missing link or new branch of your family tree while we are there.

    We will continue our 50/50 fundraiser raffle too. It works such that the proceeds are split between one winner getting 50% and the chapter coffers receiving the other 50%. Tickets are priced beginning at $5 = 2 tickets $10 = 5 tickets $20 = 12 tickets (pricing based on not wanting to make our treasurer accommodate 1$ bills).

    You must be present to win. The drawing will be conducted immediately after the chapter business portion of our meeting.

    We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, October 18, 2014.

    Family History Center Address:
    350 Wabash Ave Redlands CA 92374 United States
    Use 5th Ave. driveway and park in stake center parking area between the Temple and the stake center.
