CAHA announced that it has found a new location for its meetings, the First Presbyterian Church, 554 McCallie Avenue. Meetings will be held in the chapel which is easy to access (no steps). Parking will also be easier and at no cost. Many of you will remember the Medical Arts Building and its parking lot; that building and the parking lot are now part of the church. For those who are not familiar with the area, the sanctuary is on the corner of McCallie and Douglas. Next to the church is a tall building, The Tower, and there is a small driveway between it and the larger building which is now owned by UTC. If you cannot find the driveway, call Marti at 423 595-4468; we will get you to the meeting. Masks are recommended.
