Location and Day for Membership Meetings 

Our meeting place and meeting day remain the same as the last year:
Jepson Alumni Center on the University of Richmond Campus, on each SECOND Wednesday! 

A few notes about this location:Jepson Alumni Center Map

  • Official Jepson Alumni Center written directions and link to map: http://events.richmond.edu/jepson-alumni-center/directions.html
  • If you Google "U of R Jepson Alumni Center" you will be sent to a different building and be given incorrect addresses: 101 College Road and 28 Westhampton Way -- these are incorrect! The Jepson Alumni Center's correct street address is 49 Crenshaw Way, Richmond, VA 23221. On GoogleMaps it will show up as Alumni Relations, U of R, near College road. Use Keller Road to enter campus, then take right. Alumni Center will be to your right; there is plenty of well-lit parking to your left, directly across from the Jepson Alumni Center.
  • In Google Maps, the building is labeled "Alumni Relations".

We'll Recycle What Your Recycler Won't!! Dont forget to bring your old batteries, CFC bulbs, printer cartridges and #5 plastics.

Meetings are scheduled from January through April and September through November at 7 PM and are free and open to the public!
