Southbound on I-5, take exit number 176 which is 175th Street. At the foot of the exit, turn right onto 175th.

Northbound on I-5, take exit number 176 and turn left onto 175th at the foot of the exit. Either way directions continue as follows.


Go about 7/10th of a mile and turn right at electric light onto Aurora Avenue, go north about 10 blocks (it will be hard to tell). You will see a Fred Meyer department store on the left which is at the corner of Aurora and 185th. Turn left onto 185th, go one block, turn left onto Linden Avenue and immediately turn right into the parking lot for the hall. The hall is at the corner of Linden and 185th. If the lot is full you may park across Linden in the Fred Meyer parking lot.


Orienting yourself in the area: 

In Seattle, Shoreline, and Edmonds, Aurora Avenue is physically the same road as Highway 99. It just depends on where you are, north/south wise, what it will be called. The numbered streets that run east/west get higher as you get farther away from downtown Seattle.  However, when you cross the county line between King (Seattle and Shoreline are in King) and Snohomish (Edmond is in Snohomish ) counties, there is a drastic shift in both the east/west street names and the north/south street names. Also in Snohomish the numbers get larger as you get farther away from Everett, hence, when you cross 205th in the King County numbering system going north, you will be at about 238th in the Snohomish system and 230th in Edmonds will be north of you
