Upcoming Meetings

Sunday, July 9, 2023 - SUMMER PICNIC

Time: 11am - 3pm
Location: Fort Washington State Park Details
Our annual picnic and book swap will be at Ft Washington State Park, near the Ft Washington exit of PA Turnpike. Pavillion #1 next to Parking Lot #1.

PhACT will supply paper products and cold beverages (soda, iced tea, water). You supply whatever you wish to eat. It's fine but not required or expected to bring food to share.

Bring books you no longer want, and go home with new (to you) books. You can take books even if you don't bring any - there are always plenty!
