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, 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!

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.
