What does a metal organ pipe, a pencil and the confluence of the rivers all have in common? A point! For our May meeting we are going to have a pep rally to review some of the history of our great city of Pittsburgh! Robert Stakeley, Education Outreach Coordinator and Suzanne Gilliland, Volunteer Ambassador for the Heinz History Center will present the program. You may even win some fabulous prizes on how historical you are that evening! Come and have a great time!

The meeting will be held Monday, May 18, 2015 at Mount Lebanon Lutheran Church, 975 Washington Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15228 412.563.0300. Get your reservations in early! Special thanks goes out to Larry Allen and the Church for their generosity in hosting our meeting. We appreciate everything!
I want to thank all of you for your support and friendship these past 2 years as I've served you as Sub-Dean.

I have enjoyed every moment and have learned so much. We truly have a fabulous Chapter!



Never come to a Chapter meeting before? Worried that it's stuffy and you won't know anyone? Don't know why you should come?

Be just and fear not! The Pittsburgh AGO Chapter is a friendly group that starts off the meeting with chit-chat around 6PM and has a wonderful buffet dinner every month (only $18). Dieting? Skip the dinner and come for the program; it's free and a benefit to you as a member.

Reservations are required if you're coming to the dinner in advance (10 days); you can make one at (the Dinner Reservations link above/left) or contact if you need more information or to make your reservation.

Do something different in the New Year and come to the meeting - you'll be glad you did!
