Next PVPA Meeting
Guests are always welcome at regular PVPA meetings.
The next regular meeting of the PVPA will be 7-9pm
on Thursday, September 26, 2013
at the Quabbin Visitors Center (east from the route
202 / route 9 intersection, in Belchertown; look for
Quabbin, Windsor Dam, State Police sign; turn north from route 9 onto
the long paved access road). The entrance to the access road is almost
precisely 3 miles east (along route 9) from the intersection
of routes 202 and 9. The access road is about 1/3 mile long.
The subsequent regular meetings
will be held on October 31 and November 21, followed by the members annual dinner
in January (at a time to be decided), and then a meeting on February 27, 2014.
A schedule of meetings and PVPA events for 2013
is available here.
Meetings are typically the last Thursday of
each month, except for December
and January (and occasionally November, when the
November meeting in some years moves to earlier in November or to the first week in
December to avoid Thanksgiving). (This is
due to the holidays and the
members-only annual dinner that is held in January.)
