NWL September Meeting Location

The September meeting of the NWI will take place at Trinity Church in downtown Rockford, Illinois, thanks to Mark Broman. Please park in the lot off North Madison Street.

We are moving the meeting here on account we are arranging to ride the Rockford Park District Trolley Car 36 after the meeting. Trinity’s back parking lot is nearly across the street from the trolley depot on North Madison Street.
