President's Message



January 2014 ARRTOP President's message

The American Revolution Round Table of Philadelphia (ARRTOP) has been around for over twelve years, but our members will attest to the fact that our meeting sites have frequently changed. Joyfully, this situation has ended, and we now have a new home!

Starting in January of 2014, ARRTOP will convene on the LAST MONDAY of each month at MaGerk's Pub and Grill (582 South Bethlehem Pike, Ft. Washington, PA 19034). Note that the evening of the meeting has changed from Wednesday to MONDAY. MaGerk's has welcomed us with open arms, and offers many advantages over all of the other sites we have used. Ample free parking, a wide menu of delicious food and draft beers, a wonderful sound and visual system and a quiet, comfortable meeting room are now available to the group each month. The meetings are FREE and OPEN to the public, as always. Please refer to the "Future Meetings and Speakers" portion of this site for updated information.

Once again, I wish to thank each of our "faithful" members who have persevered with us through all the changes, and I would like to warmly invite new friends to come out and join with ARRTOP at its new location! The Board of ARRTOP will work hard to bring the finest speakers to our meetings, speakers who will educate, inform and create a greater awareness of our Founding Era for our guests!
