NEXT EVENT:  TBA

 

!!! IMPORTANT !!!

We are currently looking for an affordable venue to host future events.  With the NY Aquarium’s facility still unavailable and the St. Brandon’s facility fully booked for next few months, we currently have no place to hold meetings.

If you know of a place that can host our event please kindly call Steve Matassa at (347) 277-4793

Thanks much!

Below please find a list of our upcoming events.
