The Susquehanna Chapter meets once a month on the third Wednesday in the evening. Most meetings are held at the Elm Park United Methodist Church rooms at 401 Chestnut Street in Oneonta starting at 6 P.M.with a covered dish supper. For those not attending the supper, the program starts at 7 P.M. And it is followed by the business meeting. All interested persons may attend a meeting, both members and non-members. Your executive committee, wishing to reduce our carbon footprint, encourages members from outside Oneonta to carpool to meetings and activities.

Jun 19 - Picnic at Gilbert Lake State Park - 6:00 PM - Note this change: This year we have rented the Beach Pavilion, not the usual Briggs building. Items may be dropped off at the Handicapped Parking area, but event parking for the Beach Pavilion is further along the road, behind the bath house at the beach (see map). Entry to the park is free after 6 pm. We will eat at 6:00 pm, but feel free to come earlier and enjoy the beach. Those attending often take a walk together after dinner, on the little trail that runs around the lake shore. New members and families with children are especially welcome to come out for this picnic. There is a playground as well as the beach, with a beach house for changing; and the entire area is delightful to explore. Because there is no formal program, there is more time for visiting, so this is a good occasion to get to know other
members better, in a very pleasant setting.
