Meetings

The membership year starts off with a Fall picnic. This is not a business meeting, but a friendly gathering to enjoy the fine food provided and talk about the summer birding activities. The next four meetings are business meetings and are held on the first Friday in November, March and May and the second Friday in January. These meetings are held at the Churchville Presbyterian Church – 2844 Churchville Rd, Churchville, MD. The November, March and May meetings include a dinner provided by the ladies of the church. After the business portion of the meeting is over, a guest speaker provides a program of interest to the members. Our Summer Social meeting in July consists of light refreshments and socializing followed by a guest speaker. See the most recent newsletter for information about the next meeting.
