Our meetings are held at the Santa Barbara Elks Club at 150 N. Kellogg Avenue, just off Calle Real in Goleta. Please park on the mountain side of the Elks building and use the front door. SEC meets in the first room to the left. When you RSVP, you can choose either the hot meal option or an endless salad and soup bar. (If you do not RSVP and pay in advance, you may be limited to the salad bar option only.) Both options include drinks and dessert. 

From our Co-Presidents:     Plan now and save the date for our September 9 meeting!
