Note that Google Maps shows the destination as being just beyond where you need to turn into the complex.



The building where we are meeting has locked doors that require a badge for access. Angela Ropp of Consumers Energy has kindly volunteered to hand out security badges and record names on Wednesday morning from 8:30-9:00am EDT. After 9:00am Wednesday, you will need to contact Debbie Fairbanks at (517) 788-1068 for a badge and sign-in, including those arriving on Thursday or Friday for the first time. There will be a sign on the door of the building with this information as well.
