Meetings are usually held the second Sunday of the month, from noon to 3 PM meetings on the 2nd floor of the New Hampshire Health Care Association, which is located at 5 Sheep Davis Road, Suite E, in Pembroke, NH. Some months have the meetings moved to alternate dates so as to not conflict with a major holiday, such as Mothers' Day.
