This will be an outdoor event under their tent and will be held rain or shine. Registration is required and there can be no walk-in participants.

Breakfast will be served between 8:00 AM and 9:15 AM,  At 9:30, we will have a special check presentation to the American Red Cross with officials from the Pocono Raceway and American Red Cross from our Drive for the Red Fundraiser held this past July. Following the check presentation, there will be the opportunity to take a short 30 mile drive on some nearby Pocono winding roads.

August Pocono Region General Membership Meeting 8/18/2020

August Member’s Meeting at Eurana Park in Weatherly, PA. It has been very difficult for your BOD to find outdoor venues to meet because of the current situation with COVID-19. Eurana Park is a tranquil spot in Weatherly with a playground, basketball court, volleyball court, and even disc golf course. There is a lake for swimming (closed), indoor pavilion, band shell, and 2 huge open-air covered pavilions that have 18 large picnic tables each, which is perfect for social distancing rain or shine at our meeting. There is also a snack bar which serves food, and ICE CREAM for dessert..

There is a paved parking lot for parking with a short walk to the covered pavilion where we will conduct our meeting. Rest rooms are available.

And a word of caution, as a former Safety Chair I’ll suggest observing speed limits, especially since I have been told that there are a few speed traps in and around Weatherly.

Please remember to fill out and bring your Communicable Disease Waiver form . We will need to wear masks and social distance during the event, except when eating. We must comply with the PA and PCA guidance. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

If you have suggestions for future outdoor meeting locations please send then to John Emmett (Fam4Emmett@Aol.com) or Margie Becker at (jimmar@ptd.net). Please help us keep events going.

Time: Tuesday August 18th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Place: Eurana Park
560 Third Street
Weatherly, PA 18255

Pavilion #1 which is to the right of the band shell in the park.

Food: Pizza will be delivered 6:30ish compliments of your Region treasury.

Drink: Bring your own beverage, or purchase one at the snack bar (alcohol not permitted in the park) (pets not permitted in the park).

Note: The snack bar only accepts cash
Suggestion: Bring a beach towel to mark your seat at the picnic table. Let’s see who brings the most interesting beach towel……

Please RSVP so we can have an appropriate amount of pizza. Responding is strongly recommended. RSVP to: Margie Becker – her email is jimmar atsign ptd.net

Thanks for your patience and understanding with our struggles during this strange time in our history. John Emmett
