Summer Seminars

You Don't Have to Wait Until Fall!
Fridays, 1 to 3 p.m.,
Scottish Rite Masonic Center
6151 H St.

The popular Summer Seminars series, coordinated by Ed Sherman, will commence May 23 and continue until Aug. 1.

The location is the same as last year: The Scottish Rite Masonic Center is north of the main CSUS entrance, just off Carlson Drive. There is plenty of free parking (no pass needed).

There will generally be two presentations each Friday with a break in-between. It is a drop-in seminar; no sign-up is necessary. It's a good idea to get there early.
