Our Region and COVID-19

The ongoing pandemic has made for an unusual election year.  We were compelled to cancel our annual "Morning in America" fundraiser brunch.  Additionally, many of the events at which we typically have a "presence" have been cancelled this year as well (St. Patrick's Day Breakfast, Newark Community Day, Columbus Day Breakfast, etc.).

We do, however, continue to "meet" via online video-conferencing at the usual day & time of our meetings (last Mondays of the month at 7:00pm).  If you are not receiving that information please contact a member of the region's executive committee. 

Region Officer Election Results

At the general Region Meeting on Oct. 28, 2019, we conducted our election of officers as called for by our by-laws.  The results were as follows:

Treasurer: Genie Leake (for a second term)

Vice-Chair: Ken James (for a third term)

Chair: David Gilefski (for a third term)

Upon completion of the election process the Chair re-appointed Kathy Beard to the role of Secretary.

Thank you to all who participated in this process. 

Western New Castle Region Has Moved!

We have moved AGAIN!!  Beginning in January 2019, we will be meeting in the Chambers Memorial Hall of the Millcreek Volunteer Fire Company.  The address is 3900 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington 19808.  That is the older building, NOT the newer one at 3808 Kirkwood.  Parking is available in the rear of the building.  We will continue to meet on the LAST MONDAY of each month, starting at 7:00 P.M.  Please join us and bring a friend!
