Dear Members,

Due to the effects of COVID-19 several facilities that Local 5 PA leases for the monthly Chapter meeting are still following social distancing guidelines and are not available for the month of June. With this said all June Chapter meetings have been cancelled. We are hoping to see a change for the month of July with those facilities so we can safely resume our monthly Chapter meetings. Local 5 will keep you posted on any further changes as they come. Stay Safe !!
