Where We Meet

     Regular monthly meetings are at Becknell Hall (pictured right), also known as the Pioneer Village City Hall, located at 4700 Summitt Drive. We meet the third Friday of each month at 7:00 PM, except when special events are scheduled, such as our annual picnic and Christmas party. These events and times will be posted and take the place of our regular meetings.
     Directions: From the Gene Snyder (I-265), take Preston Highway (Hwy 61) south to Bullitt County. Follow Preston to the traffic light before the 84 Lumber. There is a sign indicating the Pioneer Village City Hall to the right. Turn right, this is Summitt Drive. Follow Summitt until you see Mini's U-Stuff-It Self Storage on the left. Becknell Hall is immediately afterwards on your left.
