Messiah University Sustainability Tour

On Thursday June 10, 2021, our Chapter finally re-scheduled our tour of the Messiah University campus in Mechanicsburg, PA! Thank you to all those who joined this sustainability tour and a special thanks to our host and tour guide, Brandon Hoover, Director of Sustainability. We learned many interesting things about how Messiah is leading the way in the areas of sustainability, waste management, recycling, clean energy and bio-diversity.



2020 Q3 Chapter Meeting & Zoom Scavenger Hunt

Many members joined us from the comfort of their home office or living room couch for our 3rd Quarter Chapter Meeting and Zoom Scavenger Hunt.  This was a way for many of us to get together virtually but socially with your favorite beverage and have some fun getting to know each other better.

The scavenger hunt took place after the meeting and was on typical home items, some relating to our profession in some unique way.  Each player had 60 seconds to retrieve the items in question.  Do you like the hats? This just made it a little more interesting via Zoom! The good news is, no one was hurt and we all enjoyed a little fun on the side!



2019 Q4 Chapter Meeting & Social Event

Talen Energy (PPL Brunner Island)

The Chapter would like to thank member Marcia Thiess for hosting this meeting at Talen Energy Brunner Island and for the very informative presentation on the inner workings of the power generating station. Though Brunner Island was originally built to run on coal, the plant can now also operate on natural gas. We learned about environmental compliance, waste management, sustainability and what effect the closing of TMI has had on their operations.

We also had several guests attend this meeting: Ashley Nelson, Curtis Snyder from Curtis J. Snyder & Associates, Alexandria Zwanziger from Phoenix Contact and Allison Kiefer from Rettew. All met for networking and social hour at Boomerangs in New Cumberland after the meeting.
