We’re Moving!

In the short time we have been meeting at Saint James’ Cathedral, our group has already outgrown the space! Starting in May, we will be meeting at the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Service Center’s Fresno HQ at 5340 N. Fresno St, Fresno, CA 93710. The GFPSG Steering Committee visited several potential new locations, and the DHHSC was the best of the best. It meets all of our needs for size, services, location, and accessibility.  The last page of the newsletter includes a map to our new location and details on other upcoming meetings.

4th Annual Ice Cream Train Trip

On Monday, April 28th, we’ll be taking our annual train trip to Hanford for ice cream at Superior Dairy! This year, instead of making a group reservation with Amtrak, we’re asking that participants buy their own tickets and make their own arrangements for assistance boarding the train. We will still arrange transportation from the train station in Hanford to Superior Dairy. We’ll be taking the San Joaquin No. 702 leaving at 9:55am; returning on the San Joaquin No. 715 leaving at 2:42pm. Click here to download the flyer for all the details.
