Pleasant Unity United Presbyterian Church

101 Millerstown Culmerville Road

Tarentum, PA 15084

11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. 

Meeting Information

A typical meeting starts about 11:00 with time for socializing and looking at buttons displayed for sale. At 12:00 we sit down for lunch. Members are asked to bring their own sandwich and the hosts for that month will provide the drinks, snacks and the dessert. After lunch the Program for that month is presented. At the end of the program, the club holds a meeting where all club details and activities are discussed and planned. 


The Keystone Button Club members take turns during the year hosting the meetings. Two members work together to host a meeting and typically each member only has to do it once a year. Hosting duties include:

1.  Drinks - cold drinks, cups, ice, hot coffee (to be made in the coffee maker at the Lighthouse), cups, cream & sugar.

2.  Snacks - a snack of your choice (chips, pretzels, etc.) on each table. 

3.  Dessert - a dessert of your choice to be served to each member.

4.  Clean up - hosts are responsible for clean up after the lunch of the kitchen and dining areas.


The programs presented at the Keystone Button Club meetings are generally given by the members. Presentng a program is not a member requirement but all members are encouraged to participate. It is a wonderful learning experience and the Club has an button article file to help members create a program very easily. The Club also presents related programs given by people outside the club and would be interested in hearing about any available programs.

Phone Tree

There is a phone tree that is detailed in the member's program book. The phone tree will be initiated by the President in the case of a meeting cancellation, the death of a member or other emergency. Each member listed on the phone tree is asked to call the President if they are unable to contact the person they are responsible to call.
