Karin Ekvall Johnson Sommer Memorial
Menorah Plaza Community Room,
4925 Minnetonka Boulevard, Saint Louis Park, MN 55416

1:30 PM, Wednesday June 5th, 2019

A reception with light buffet (sandwiches, humous and veggies, fruit, cookies/bars, and beverages) will be served after the service.

DIRECTIONS: The building is set back and hard to see from Minnetonka Boulevard, but the entrance to the driveway is on the South side of the boulevard, just West of Ottawa Avenue and directly across from Princeton Avenue, between a bus shelter and the former Park Theater Place.

PARKING & BUILDING ACCESS: There is a parking lot in the front right (West side) of the building, and in the back of the building. To access the lot in the back, turn left before you reach the turnaround and follow the driveway down the hill to the back lot. In the unlikely event that the lots are full, overflow parking is available on Princeton and adjacent side streets. The building is a security building but we will have someone stationed at the door to let people in. The Community Room is to the left when you enter through the front door. Turn left, walk past the reception desk, and turn left again at the mailboxes. The entrance to the Community Room is on your right and will be easy to spot. Hope to see you there.
