Our Wednesday Dec. 6 meeting at 7 pm will be our annual holiday social event in the lobby of the Planetarium. Please bring a dessert or appetizer-style dish to pass, and the non-alcoholic beverage of your choice. The club will provide plates/plasticware and cups! This is a great time to chat with members and get to know one another. Please join us.
Also, feel free to bring along surplus astronomy gear or books you may wish to swap or sell.
