Hope to see you there.

Where:  Little Pine State Park

Directions:  Go to Waterville on route 44. Cross Pine Creek and turn right to follow signs to Little Pine State Park. Go past Happy Acres Campground and store, past the Little Pine Lower Campground and turn right into the Picnic Area. Park in the lot on the left before you get to the gatehouse. The tour starts to the right of the gatehouse about 20 yards off the drive, in the outdoor seating area.

If you get to the dam, you've gone too far.

June Meeting

Preparedness...

 

Communications -  Part of being prepared is being able to communicate. You should have a battery powered weather radio in case the power goes out. But beyond the basics, today's technology gives us more ways to communicate and to prepare for more than bad weather.  Our speaker this month, Travis Best, has wide experience with emergency communications and will demonstrate a low cost way to communicate even if most services are down.

Bring your smart phone and or notebook computer to the meeting if you like (not required) to access the local network we will set up.

Hope to see you there.

 

When: Wednesday June 4th, 2014 7:00pm

Where:  Perkins Restaurant, 160 Via Bella St, Williamsport, PA

Details:  Open to the Public, Free Admission, Donations Appreciated

Ample free parking.

Come to the meeting to find out what our members are doing and what you can do to be prepared.

Hope to see you there.

May Meeting

Preparedness...

 

First Aid Unlike our usual monthly meetings, this one is pay-to-play because you're getting a professional certification. The knowledgeable staff at the East Lycoming YMCA (next to the Lycoming Mall) will be conducting our class. These are the folks who train all of the lifeguards. Normally $90+, our group rate is just $65 per person. Completing this class will get you a laminated Red Cross certification card indicating your qualification to conduct adult and pediatric first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and automated external defibrillator (AED).

To achieve our goal of a resilient community which can stand up to any hardship, it's very important that our members be qualified to help each other when in need. Please make an effort to attend this important training. If you cannot manage the fee, please let us know and maybe we can find assistance within our membership to make sure anyone who wants this training gets it.

It's also important that you RSVP in advance so that we can prepare our trainers for how many to expect and to give them the details to put on the certification cards. If you will be attending, please email board@williamsportteaparty .com letting us know your intention to attend and with your name as you want it to appear on your card. You needn't have been involved with our group before -- this class is being offered to the general public. Please join us if interested.

 

NOTE: Meeting Time and Location Change and Requires Registration and a fee...

When: Wednesday May 7th, 2014 5pm to 10pm

Where:  East Lycoming YMCA, 50 Fitness Drive, Muncy, PA 17756
