December Holiday Celebration

Olde Meck will be holding a Holiday Celebration meeting on 13 December at the new location that Aldersgate has provided the Society. Please see the updated map and directions in a post below. It is located in the new Asbury Activity Center, just past our previous location in Ray Hall.
 
In the past, Olde Meck has held a holiday dinner, however due to a number of issues it was decided we would hold a more informal event in the new location so everyone can celebrate the holidays as a group.
 
Social time will begin at 6:30 PM and the meeting will start at 7:00 PM. A brief presentation will be made to review all the wonderful things Olde Meck has done this past year, the installation of the 2018 officers will be made, and we'll even set aside some time to give away a few door prizes!
 
All members are encouraged to attend, and are welcome to bring their significant others, as they have in previous years. Non-members are also welcome to attend and learn more about Olde Meck and the great things the Society contributes to genealogy in Mecklenburg County, surrounding areas, and even the world!
 
Special Catered refreshments and beverages will be provided.
 
​Contact Olde Meck at info@oldemeck.org if you have any questions.


Another NEW Monthly Meeting Location!

Due to continued construction at Aldersgate, our monthly meetings have moved. We are now meeting in the Activity Center at the NEW Asbury Health and Rehabilitation Center. There are two ways to enter the Aldersgate complex and go to the new meeting location. See the directions and map below or download Meeting Location Directions.
 
Note – The Asbury Health and Rehabilitation Center is located behind the Fellowship Hall (where we used to meet) and adjoining buildings. 
 
(1) Enter from Shamrock Rock Dr
  • You will come into the guard gate as usual.
  • Continue on Willard Farrow Dr all the way to Cole Dr as if going to our old location at the Fellowship Hall.
  • Instead of turning left into the old parking lot, keep straight on Cole Dr and then turn to the left on Bishops Way Ln.
  • Continue down the hill and you will see the new Asbury Heath and Rehabilitation Center straight ahead on the right side of the road.
(2) ​Enter from Eastway Dr
  • This is a new entrance Aldersgate has recently opened. Located off Eastway Dr, shortly before Shamrock Dr, it comes in at the back of the Asbury Health and Rehabilitation Center.
  • After you pass the guard gate, take a left in the parking lot and make your way around to the front of the building.
Aldersgate would like us to park in either of the two side parking lots and leave the spaces in front of the entrance for families of residents. You will enter the building through the gabled entrance at the bottom of the parking lot. Once inside, the Activity Center is straight ahead, slightly to the left, past the main lobby.
