Due to popular demand, our meeting dates and location have changed. We will now be holding our monthly meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Swiftwater Brewing. Swiftwater will be opening just for UNYHA. This meeting will be open to ALL current members and guests. Swiftwater's kitchen will not be open for this event, but UNYHA will be providing pizza for this meeting. Beer will be available for purchase during the meeting.

More details about UNYHA meetings and directions to Swiftwater Brewing are on the "About UNYHA > Meetings" page. We'll see you there!
