**Important Notice: CHANGE of location at Middlesex Community College

New Location: The Pavilion, Founders Building

Middlesex Community College has changed the location of FOCL’s Annual Meeting. For the past several years, we have met in Chapman Hall. Due to some last minute construction, we will hold the 2018 Annual Meeting in the Pavilion in the Founders Building, which is right across from Chapman Hall.

To get to The Pavilion from the lower parking lot:

1.    First locate the Handicap parking spaces to the left of the drop off circle. From there, a set of stairs (located on the far left of the Founders Building) allow you to enter the Founders Building and the Pavilion directly. 

2.    If you want to avoid the stairs, walk to the front of Founders Hall to enter the building and get to the Pavilion.

FOCL will have outdoor and indoor signs and a person outside to direct you.
