OPEN HOUSE (AKA New Members' Social)

The Appalachian Mountain Club - Delaware Valley Chapter is offering an Open House event (aka New Members Social) at the Peace Valley Nature Center on Saturday, March 8, 2013.  The event will be proceeded by a short hike at 1:00 PM.  

If you're new to the AMC, or if you've been a member but have been a little hesitant to participate, this is a good opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn about the AMC and the Delaware Valley Chapter.  The social program starts at 2:00 PM and there will be a short video that explains details about our club and our activities.  Activity chairs will be on hand to answer your individual questions as well.  Light snacks and refreshments will be served.  

The event will be cancelled in case of the bad weather or uncontrolled circumstances.  Please check this site for status and updates.

    I would like to thank all of you who showed up on Saturday for our Open House. Personally, I had a good time, and I wish I could have met all of you one-on-one. We hope it was fun and informative, and we look forward to seeing you on many AMC events. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me ([masked]) and I'll be happy to get in touch with you.

    I would also like to thank my colleagues: Joan, Rick, Rich, Tammy, Cindy (pass this on to Dennis!), and Midori.

    For those with four-legged friends, we're sorry but we cannot allow dogs at this particular event, given the venue and circumstances. There are some AMC events in which they are welcome. Please feel free to check with the leaders of those events.

    • Midori

      Carol, every year we have some requests for the different location or date, and we are aware of it. This is the first time on weekend and also at the Doylestown area. Since we are all volunteers, managing our schedules and find an affordable and reasonable location are the key factors.
