On October 18, 2012, Philadelphia YMF established a topic and presenter for Philadelphia Sectionís monthly dinner meeting. The meeting was held at Lowes Hotel at 1200 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA. Section dinner meetings consist of an hour long social hour, followed by dinner and concluded by a presentation. Mr. John Eagan, P.E. from Alfred Benesch & Company, presented on the I-95 Section CPR project. There were over 80 people in attendance including Section, Younger members, and students from local colleges.
We would like to thank all of the younger members along with the Section for coming out and supporting Octoberís YMF dinner meeting. The Section was thrilled to have seen an increase in younger memberís attendance and are looking forward to seeing a continual increase among young members at future events.
