UMKC Chapter Announcements
The UMKC AAUP Chapter will have a social/business meeting on Friday, October 25, 2013 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at Ed Gogol's.
Directions to the Gogol home: the address is 2200 W. 50th TERRACE, the fourth house from Rainbow Blvd, heading east toward Stateline. Parking is allowed only on the south side of the street - 2200 is on the north side. (We share our driveway, so we try not to block it with cars.)
From the Volker campus, I usually drive on south on the east side of the Plaza, as that road turns into Ward Parkway, and turn right onto 50th Street, to Stateline, turn left onto Stateline, and then immediately right onto 50th Terrace. We're at the far end of the block. For those coming from the Oak St. end of the Volker campus, you can simply drive east on 51st St, straight past Loose Park as the road turns into Rockwell, cross Ward, and you will be on 50th St.
