National Meeting


Please join us in 2024 for the WNF&GA National Annual Meeting.

Preparing for Hershey Gardens
By Patty Burnside
If you go to the website for Hershey Gardens, you will find an excellent video and orientation to view before the National Meeting. Be sure to open the categories in the top green banner. There is even a drone aerial overview of the grounds. At the Membership page, Twigs & Gigs, back issues of the newsletter can be read for free. A recurring event is the Eco-Fiction Book Club. There you will find a listing of current books being read by members that may be of interest to you. For more information on the book club, contact Vera Kolstrom at or 717-508-5970.

Perhaps you are planning to extend your stay. Information on other atractions can me found at Unwrap Your Chocolate Adventure | HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD. Of course, there are other non-Hershey atractions for this popular tourist town that can be located through Hershey Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania State Capital was declared by then President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 to be the “handsomest building” he had ever seen.  The huge  Violet Oakley murals are stunning.

Finally, our contact at Hershey Entertainment noted there are some stores and boutiques in the town of Hershey as well as a Tanger Outlet Mall just outside of Hershey.

Before arriving for the National Meeting, you are encouraged to do some reconnaissance.

Patty Burnside,
WNF&GA National President
