    Chapter 41 - Chapter 41 NYSKPS

    Updated by Eric LaJuene on 20131113. Primary area of interest is The Great State of New York

    HISTORY OF CHAPTER 41 - NYSKP's
    After attending a Chapter 3 Rally and finding out there were 350 SKP members in NYS with no chapter, Esther Tallamy and her friends on Long Island decided to start one. And why not? She was qualified to do just that as she had been the first female Chapter president for SKP’s in the United States, presiding over Chapter 3. Chapter 3 consisted at that time of the New England States and Eastern NY. Fifty people were in attendance at the first meeting. Monthly luncheons continued until the first rally was held at Brook-N-Wood Campground, in Elizaville, NY, a small upstate town just east of the Hudson River in Dutchess County. That was May of 1996 and Esther became the new chapter’s first president. The Chapter continues to grow and holds two annual rallies, the first rally is typically held in early June and the second is on the weekend after Labor Day in September. Please come and join us as we explore the wonders of our region.”

    Our 2014 Fall Rally will be from Friday to Sunday, September 12 to 14, 2014 in DAVENPORT, NY

Howe Caverns is only a 45 minute drive. Anita and George Saba along with Anne and Steve Warren will be our hosts for the weekend and are making plans for our enjoyment and relaxation.
