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).
Guests are always welcome at our chapter meetings!
MONTHLY MEETING PLACE
Unless otherwise noted, 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 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
Next Chapter Meeting – Tuesday, October 24 @7:00 PM
The October chapter meeting will feature a presentation by Lori Lauver, the STEM coordinator at Sylvan Heights Charter School in Harrisburg. Lori will talk about her participation (and enthusiasm for) DFTU’s Trout in the Classroom program.
Following Lori’s presentation, we will hear from Michael Gogal, founder of Gogal Publishing, about their latest product, Stream Map USA…a searchable, color-coded river, lake, and stream map with water features displayed over road maps, satellite images, and topographic maps. Each edition features a built-in search function allowing users to easily find even the most obscure streams.
