Just a reminder that you do not have to be a member to attend our General Membership Meetings. There is no fee to come to the meetings.

KEY NOTE SPEAKER FOR NOVEMBER 16:

Charles “Chuck” Gibbs  title of his presentation will be “A Victim of John Barleycom”.  It is a story of the murder of Chuck’s great uncle, Charles H. Scott, and the trial that followed.  The story unfolds in Somerset, Pennsylvania in 1889.  Charles Scott and several friends took a train from Pittsburg to Confluence in Somerset County ti join friends who called themselves the “Eureka Fishing Club”.  They brought two kegs of beer with them.  On Sunday, they tapped one of the keys and then played ball and horsed around drinking the beer and having a good time.  Unfortunately, one Bert Lahr, had a bit too much beer and took issue when club members “cut him off” from more beer.  The presentation details the events that unfolded that afternoon and the trial that followed.
