Visit us at our next monthly meeting:

The KNC meets on the third Thursday evening of every month, from September through June.

The meetings are a chance to mix and mingle, to learn about our many activities, and to profit from our fascinating speakers series.

The meetings take place at First Lutheran Church and School, 4091 Lakeshore Road.

Doors open at 6:45 p.m., giving members a half hour to chat and sign up for activities. This is also the time for newcomers to the Club to submit their membership applications.

The regular business of the meeting, including the featured guest speaker, gets underway at 7:15.
