The NHARC Meetings

  • The Business Meeting is the second Wednesday of each month.
  • The General or Activities Meeting is held on the forth Wednesday of each month except November and December.
The location of our meetings:
   La Roche College
   Zappala Building Entrance
   Room HAC310
   9000 Babcock Blvd.
   Town of McCandless, PA 15237
Meetings are held in room HAC310. There are three driveways that connect the campus to Babcock. If the college is on your left, the first driveway you see is one-way, but the wrong way. I suggest driving past the next driveway with a traffic light and turn left into the last driveway. If you are coming the other way (college on the right), take the first driveway. Take the driveway to the first right turn. Drive past the Library Building and park in the next parking lot.

When you enter the parking lot, you will notice the Zappala Building on your right. Enter the building and walk down the hall until it ends. On your left will be the entrance to the HAC building. You will be on the second floor and will need to take the stairs or the elevator to the third floor. Walk towards the other end of the hall and you will see room 310 on your right.

Club meetings start at 7:00 PM. For more information regarding the new meeting location, please check out La Roche's website. The URL for the college is

2018 Club Picnic

The Club picnic will be held on September 16. The location will be North Park. We still need to reserve a grove. When we have a grove reserved, it will be posted on this web page.

Club Breakfast

There is an informal gathering on the second Saturday of every month for breakfast. The gathering starts at 8:30 AM and is held at the I-Hop in the Lowe's section of McCandless Crossing located on McKnight Road. You can also access this shopping area from Duncan Avenue or from Cumberland Road as both have access ramps into the shopping area and cross McKnight.
