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!
MONTHLY MEETING PLACE
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.
UPCOMING CHAPTER EVENTS
Tuesday, July 26 – Monthly Chapter Meeting
Our next monthly chapter meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 26. After a brief business meeting starting at 6:00 PM we will have a social gathering where we can all enjoy some great picnic food and have an opportunity to share our “fish stories.”
Since we normally meet near Harrisburg, we thought it would be a nice change to meet in Lebanon County at the Quittapahilla Creek Nature Park in Annville. We had originally planned to meet there on June 28, but had to change our venue due to stormy weather conditions. As you may know, there was a significant amount of stream improvement work completed there last year, and a second phase should be underway by the end of July. There is a possibility that the project designer will be on hand at our meeting to provide us with an update.
Family members and guests are welcome to attend, and be sure to bring your fishing gear if you’re interested in testing your skills on the Quittie.
Please save this date and RSVP to Russ Collins at email@example.com or 717-580-3958 if you plan to attend so that we can get a head count for food and beverages. We hope to see a great turnout for this fun event!
