OUR WEBPAGE IS UNDER RECONSTRUCTION, PLEASE EXCUSE THE INCONVENIENCE.  Our webpage has been upgraded and you may have noticed the change.  But in the process several items from our webpage were lost.  We are trying to recover some of the lost articles and streamline our page, so please bear with us as we do a little reconstruction on the site.

 

NARFE Chapter 1159 meetings are open to all active and retired Federal employees and guests.  Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month from September through June.  Except for social luncheons held in lieu of the December and June meetings, we meet at 10am at the Mason District Governmental Center, 6507 Columbia Pike in Annandale.
