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 PSC 124
   9000 Babcock Blvd.
   Town of McCandless, PA 15237
Meetings are held in room PSC 124. 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.

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
