Membership Meeting Updates

In an effort to have enough time for speakers and networking opportunities at the monthly SRBA Membership meetings, the meeting time has been extended, effective on March 20, 2013.

The meeting will begin with lunch and networking at 11:45am. Next, the guest speaker will begin their presentation promptly at Noon, speaking for approximately 25 minutes. The remainder of the SRBA meeting will be from about 12:25-1pm, with the reports, updates, and news/events.

Clearly, some members only have 1 hour for lunch, and Noon may be a busy time to get away. Please feel free to attend in the time that is convenient for you. Lunch will be available throughout the meeting, and it is perfectly fine to arrive late or leave early!

Slippery Rock: The Story Behind the Name


In 1779, Col. Daniel Brodhead was in command of Fort Pitt at the present site of the city of Pittsburgh. Col. Brodhead begged Gen. George Washington to allow him to lead an expedition against the Seneca Indians who were raiding settlements in the area. The troops encountered the Indians and were forced to flee for their lives.
