Description

Founded in Philadelphia in 1977, the Old Baldy CWRT is named after General Meade's horse, whose head was on display at the museum where the group was started. The round table holds a monthly meeting on the second Thursday of each month at Camden County College in Blackwood. Since April 2020 the meeting have been conducted over Zoom.
