Meeting Location

Meetings are held in the second-floor library of the Washingtonville Middle School, in Washingtonville, New York. Please note that if the Washingtonville schools are closed because of inclement weather, the meeting is cancelled! 

Please also note that owing to security changes at the school, the front door will remain locked. We’ll position one of our members at the door to let everyone in until 10 or 15 minutes after the start of the meeting. This may pose a problem for any latecomers. We’ll work on a solution to this issue.


Presentation Chair

If you’re interested in making a presentation to our club (a small stipend is available), please contact Program Chair Alan Wells at
