I park in the back parking lot. I love the view of the trees in the back. So much space.
I walk into the building from the back entrance. Looks like Grand Chapter convention planning is definitely underway. Oh, I remember those good ‘ol days. Boxes filled with materials lined up for convention use.

Walking around the property (both inside and outside) I recall wonderful memories of my time on the HQ staff.

Later that evening (after dinner) I would come back to get a picture of the headquarters in the night. The camera doesn’t do the lighting justice.
Around dinner time I head over to Salernos and meet up with Mike and Sharon (adopted parents) for dinner – all you can eat spagetti with garlic bread.
After a generous dinner treat from the Sextons, I continue to work on my blog and uploading pictures from various trips to the cloud – do some laundry and then call it a night. Tomorrow I get up early and have to drive to Athens, Ohio with a small stop in West Virginia. And so begins my trip to the mid West.
