Doc Fritchey TU generally 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 entire membership, generally 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 most 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 held 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.


Tuesday, October 25 – Monthly Chapter Meeting

Can you survive in the wild? Come learn about how native peoples identified and used wild edible and medicinal plants with Dr. David Foster. Dr. Foster is a local author who has edited a Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants, 2nd ed., and a Field Guide to Medicinal Wild Plants 2nd ed., Stackpole Books. Dr. Foster has spent more than a year and a half living outside and studied the plants of the world from Pennsylvania to Washington State, Alaska, Florida and the desert Southwest, as well as New Zealand, South and Central America.

Dr. Foster’s “hands on, taste, touch, see” presentation will follow our business meeting which begins at 6:30 PM. Signed copies of his books will be available for $25.00 each, and all proceeds will be donated to the Doc Fritchey Chapter.
