The building is East of Beach Blvd., on the corner of Westminster Blvd. and Jackson Street
** PLEASE NOTE: The building is part of the Westminster Civic Center, and most map searches place 8200 Westminster Boulevard just slightly off from where the meeting building is. Our meeting site is on the corner of Jackson Street and Westminster Boulevard. If you are coming from Beach Boulevard, turn onto Jackson and then left into the parking lot. The entrance to the facility is in the back of the building. Look for the OCRS meeting signs.
