Hi! The Northside meets every month on the 2nd Monday at Juniors Seafood on Main Street, just north of the Hecksher Drive overpass. 9349 N Main St, Jacksonville
The meeting is 6:30-8 and is held on the "Sandwich" side of the restaurant. We generally will get there closer to 6pm and order dinner from the main restaurant, letting them know we are attending the FCTP meeting next door. They will bring your food to you when it's ready.
Watch under "Events" for the Northside meeting to be posted with details about the meeting. Hope to see you at the next meeting!
