(Brief History)

When did it all start? We needed 25 to sign a charter,

Our first meeting was organized by Lloyd "Skip" Haswell and held on Wednesday, March 15, 2000 at Boscov's

Department Store in the Beaver Valley Mall in Monaca, PA. We only had 17 attend.

We waited for 3 months, Skip put an ad in the Beaver County Times and tried again!

The next meeting was held at the Monaca American Legion on Wednesday, July 19, 2000 where we had 53 attend,

therefore, we signed the charter that night and we have met every month since then. An "Election of Officers" was

held that evening, and we were on our way

This chapter was organized under the Law of 1988 and filed Articles of Incorporation with

the Pennsylvania Department of State on the 2nd day on November, 2000.
