Doc Fritchey TU holds its membership meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month, except for one month during the spring (Annual Banquet), some summer months, and December (no meeting).

Our business meeting, which is open to the general membership, starts at 6:30, followed by the featured program of the month. Members who would like to present something to the board are asked to contact the chapter president before the meeting to schedule time on the agenda.

Guests are always welcome at our chapter meetings!


Our current location for monthly chapter meetings is the Giant Food Community Center, 2300 Linglestown Road (Rt. 39), in Susquehanna Township just north of Harrisburg. This location is 1.7 miles east of Rts. 22/322, on the north side of the road between Crooked Hill Road and Progress Avenue. Our meetings are in one of the Community Rooms on the second floor, and food service and beverages are available before or after our meetings in the Beer Garden & Eatery on the first floor.

Next Monthly Chapter Meeting – Tuesday, September 23 @6:30 PM

This month our meeting location will move back indoors to the Giant Food Community Center. This will be our annual membership meeting when we elect our officers and board members for the new fiscal year which begins October 1. To view the slate of candidates, click here.
