May 8, 2003
If you have room in the car for another person, please let me know and
contact those needing rides directly. Carpooling saves gas, parking space,
and resources. To arrange, please contact Philip, Elicia, or others whom
you know are attending.
DIRECTIONS TO ELEUSIS:
Eleusis is about a five minute drive west of Middletown, 30 minute drive
north of Calistoga, and a 10 minute drive south of Harbin Hot Springs.
