Thanks Barb,

We missed you too, but I know you had a busy schedule, so it's just one of 
those things - you can only do so much.  Look forward to next year in 
Cleveland!

Paul

>> Ann, since you are arriving on Saturday, I believe check-in time is after
>> 1
>> PM, so it would probably make more sense to go to the Church first.  Do
>> you
>> know how to get there?
>>
>> I would take the Thruway to LeRoy and then take I-490 to downtown
>> Rochester.
>> As you get into downtown Rochester you will pass Frontier Field on the
>> left
>> and then shortly thereafter you will cross over the Genesee River on our
>> new
>> Genesee Bridge (there is still construction just before you get to the
>> bridge and then construction ceases as you cross over the bridge - you
>> can't
>> miss the bridge because it's brand new, all white, and beautiful).  When
>> you
>> are almost over the bridge, take the "South Avenue" exit on your RIGHT 
>> but
>> BEAR TO THE LEFT ON THE EXIT RAMP and you will take the direction that
>> says
>> "Monroe Avenue."  At the end of the ramp (it's a long exit ramp - I
>> believe
>> there is a stop sign at the halfway point, make the stop and then 
>> continue
>> straight ahead), make a LEFT at the stoplight onto Monroe Avenue.  Monroe
>> Avenue bears to the right as you proceed.  At the second stoplight, make 
>> a
>> LEFT onto Woodbury Blvd and at the second stoplight you will see St.
>> Mary's
>> Church on the right and a parking lot on your left (it's a "pay" parking
>> lot, but it's free for Church activities such as our Termini meeting -
>> just
>> tell them you are going to St. Mary's if there is someone at the 
>> attendant
>> booth, but probably no one will be there).  Park in the parking lot and
>> walk
>> over to the Church.  The entrance to the DUGAN CENTER is on the right 
>> side
>> of the Church (as you face the Church from the street).  Walk through the
>> gates on the right of the Church which takes you to a small park and you
>> will see the stairs to your left leading down to the entrance to the 
>> Dugan
>> Center (which is the Church basement - a very nice Church basement, at
>> that!).  Walk through the doors and then be transported to Termini via 
>> our
>> group!
