NOTICE FOR 11/17/12: Unfortunately, due to construction in front of our building, we are not able to open the FHC today (Saturday, Nov. 17th). The entire lane by our two entrances has been dug out and is in the process of being refilled. Hopefully, when we open again on November 27th, we will always have a driveway into our parking lot. Thanks for your understanding.
HOLIDAY SCHEDULE: We will be CLOSED November 20-24 for the Thanksgiving Holiday.
ATTENTION: Be aware that there is major road construction in front of our building. Please be careful.
CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: Please be aware that they are working on Walkup Road directly in front of our building. . .and sometimes getting into the parking lot is not possible because they have dug out our driveway. IF it is impossible to park in the lot, the FHC will be closed. It is just too dangerous to park across the street and walk over.
