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.


Oct 17 - Mary Coffin - "The North Country National Scenic Trail Route Through the Adirondacks." Mary is an ADK member and the Chair of NY State's Volunteer Council. For the past 11 years, she has coordinated ADK volunteer efforts to work on this 4,600 mile long trail as it comes through New work. She will share what these volunteers have done to help get this trail completed.
Did you know that our country has a national trail system? And that the longest trail of them all is coming through our state? Please come out Wednesday night [October 17th] to hear Mary Coffin of ADK give us a little history of this trail system. She will explain how ADK is involved as the North Country Trail comes through New York. This trail is closer to our area than most parts of the Adirondacks, and our Chapter has been involved here for some time, so we should all enjoy Mary's picture presentation. As always, our pot-luck supper starts at 6 pm and the program will begin at 7. Bring a friend and come join us! - Linda Seifried, Chair

Nov 14 PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE: Meeting is one week earlier - Joe Sweeney - Otsego County Soil and Water District (OCSWD) Forest Technician - Joe will be discussing the county forest locations and their possibilities for recreational pursuits. He would like to hear from the community on what types of outdoor recreation they would like to see in his management plans. He will share his thoughts on conservation and his ideas to improve our forest lands.

Dec 19 - Our usual potluck, but with an emphasis on desserts! The program this evening is comprised of ADK members sharing their personal photos. If you choose to participate, please bring a few highlights of a trip or adventure you enjoyed this past year. By limiting your photo sharing to 5 minutes, there will be enough time to accommodate all who wish to take part.
