Chapter News

Here’s what’s going on in the next few months…

The snow is nice but we are a little tired of the cold temps. As we avoid freezing and look forward to Spring, we will be enjoying the annual fan run Farpoint convention in Timonium MD on 2/14-16 and snow tubing with the crew of the USS Adamant at Big Boulder on 2/22.

Snow Tubing @ Big Boulder

In March we will be checking out the “One Day in Pompeii” Exhibit at the Franklin Institute museum in Philadelphia.

Contact us if interested in participating in any of these events or for additional details.
