SWWA Monthly Meetings


Monthly meetings are held in the Community Room at Belgium Cold Springs Fire Department’s Station One which is at 7920 River Road, Baldwinsville, NY.  The meetings generally start at 6:30pm and end by 9pm. Attendees start assembling around 6pm to enjoy conversation and review of displayed items. Each month we feature a different topic, demonstration, or event based on member’s interests and market forces.  Our 2016 meeting schedule can be viewed by clicking here. In addition to the featured event, we have a Show & Tell session, a business meeting, and hold raffles.
