Presidential Update

I’m on the road again today! I just checked the weather forecast and it looks like it is going to be an absolutely fantastic next several days for the chapter conference in Indianapolis! I’m sure to see lots of lovely fall scenery in the bright sunshine as I drive across Ohio into the Hoosier State this afternoon.

For the past few days I’ve been working on getting cheap propecia united states things squared away for the chapter’s Executive Board meeting tomorrow afternoon. FYI, the officer and committee reports and the meeting agenda are already posted on the Agendas and Reports website page. Thank you Assistant Webmaster Brian!

ALL chapter members are welcome to attend the Executive Board meeting. So if you are going to be at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, please join us!

The Indianapolis Zoo is just down the street from the NCAA Hall of Champions, location of the Sunday night gala event. We have a dolphin amphitheater, touchable sharks and even a botanical garden. Our female baby elephant, Kalina (just born on July 20th), is a real cutie pie and not to be missed. Check out the zoo at http://indianapoliszoo.com/, or just ask me. I’ll happily talk your ears off about our wonderful facility.

Knitting Shops

Mass Ave Knit Shop, Fountain Square http://massaveknitshoponline.com/

Looking for a LYS (local yarn shop) in Indianapolis? There are several, but I’ll start with my favorite (and the one closest to the conference hotel):

Mass Ave Knit Shop, 862 Virginia Ave., 46203 (1.5 miles from the hotel)
http://massaveknitshoponline.com/

Yes, the name hearkens back to when the yarn shop actually was located on Mass(achusetts) Ave., but I’ve only known the shop in its current location in the Fountain Square area of Indianapolis. This is a great yarn shop with good selection of all types of yarn; this is also the place I go when I need my size 2 26″ circular knitting needles that I can’t find at a more mainstream craft store.

Other locally-owned knit/crochet/craft stores in the area:

Broad Ripple Knits, 6267 Guilford Ave., 46220 (7.7 miles from the hotel)

Knit Stop, 3941 E. 82nd St., 46240 (12 miles from the hotel)
