Chapter 40 NAWCC
Albany New York Area


Happy New Year Chapter 40 members! We have some exciting changes to our program for 2020. The Board of Directors and I have come up with a new fixed
schedule and a new more central location for our meetings.

Our meetings will now be the second Saturday of the even months of the year; February, April, June, August, October, and December.

The new location is conveniently located off exit 5 of the Northway (I87)in Latham. Hearthstone Apartments 4000 Florence Drive Latham NY 12110.  In the community room.

Our Next meeting will be February 8th at 9am. There will be a $5 registration fee with a free continental breakfast provided. The program will be a clock wheel cutting demonstration by Karl Burghart. As before, mart tables are available at no cost.  Every member present will be entered in a drawing for a cash prize of $25.

We are continuing to collect non perishable food items for the local food pantry, Please consider bringing a donation. 

Many of you may not know that at the old location we were not able to book very far in advance for our meetings. It is our hope that the new schedule
and location will make our meetings more reliable, predictable, and central to all our members. 

Thoughts and suggestions for improvements to our program going forward are welcome.
