Make plans now to attend this event, which will includes Sons from all over the world, ‘field-trips’, films, and just plain fun!

From I-71: 

Exit at Montgomery Road (exit 12). Go north on Montgomery Road for about 0.9 mile, passing Sturbridge Drive. The next left is Dearwester Drive. As you make this left onto Dearwester Drive, there will be a large sign indicating “Seasons” on your right. If you pass Miami Road while still on Montgomery Road, you’ve gone too far! After turning left from Montgomery Road on to Dearwester, make a quick right into the Seasons driveway.

Park in employees’ parking lot, which is to the right after you enter the Seasons short driveway. If for some reason all employee spots (~25-30 of them!) are taken, you can park in the visitor parking area, which is left of the entrance way down the 3rd road on your right (look for Visitors Parking sign).

From the Reagan Cross-County Highway: 

Exit the Highway via the ramp on the right toward Montgomery. Take the South Montgomery Road exit, and go about 0.9 miles down Montgomery Road, passing Miami Road on your left. Turn right on Dearwester Drive, and right again into Seasons driveway. If you pass Sturbridge Drive on your right while still on Montgomery Road, you’ve gone too far! 

Park in employees’ parking lot, which is to the right after you enter the Seasons short driveway. If for some reason all employee spots (~25-30 of them!) are taken, you can park in the visitor parking area, which is left of the entrance way down the 3rd road on your right (look for Visitors Parking sign).

After parking, enter through front main entrance of building to Seasons Retirement Community. Go down the stairway, and to the main auditorium (which is in the opposite direction to where you’re facing when you get to the bottom of the stairs). If you have any questions, just ask any of the residents or staff!
