The section holds regular meetings about 8 times per academic year, September-November and January-May. There are also special events scheduled throughout the year such as celebrations around National Chemistry Week (incorporating Mole Day, October 23) and Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (incorporating Earth Day, April 22). Recurring meeting themes include: student poster session, high school teachers night and awards night. Family events typically take in local sports (LV Iron Pigs AAA baseball; LV Phantoms hockey) or sample local food/beverage emporia. Our summer picnic at Nockamixon State Park is another highlight of the year!
