2019 Chapter Retreats

Once a year, PPFF calls the clans together. Because of time and travel constraints, the gathering will this year again be divided into two – this year recognizing the width and breadth of the Commonwealth with a southern/northern divide.

3/16/19: The southern tier hosted by the Friends of Buchanan State Forest.

4/13/19: The northern tier hosted by the Friends of Worlds End State Park

Complete the form and register by 3/10 for the southern event and 4/7 for the northern.
