Upcoming Outreach events

Post by Bjohnson » Sun Oct 20, 2019 9:06 pm

As discussed at the last PAS General meeting, We have several outreach events scheduled.

November 1st- City Park Outreach event Location is across from Scout Island. 7-9:30PM We will get more specific info very soon need 2-3 persons with telescopes

November 2nd Bogue Chitto State Park Outreach 6:30=9:30PM We do this one twice a year and is a big draw for the park and for PAS. looking for a lot of members to come out and support Bogue Chitto as we have in the past.

November 8th Chalmette Battlefield Urban Campout 6:30PM-9:00PM- this one has a lot of young campers spending the night at the battlefield. We were #1 requested program from previous campers. Hope to have 3-4 people with telescopes to attend.

If you can attend one or more of these events, please let me know, so we have adequate coverage at these events. Remember, the Purpose of the PAS is to "...Promote the Science of Astronomy" and to "...Make available, to individuals and the community, resources concerning Astronomy". We are fulfilling part of our primary purpose through these outreaches. We need your participation as members to make it successful.

Please let me know if you can attend and participate. We need YOU!

If you have already volunteered for one or more of these events, THANK YOU! No need to respond again. See you there.
If you have NOT responded, but are thinking about it, please let me know you’re coming, so we don’t have to cancel.

Arrive for Set-up a little early, so we are ready when the people start to show up.

Thanks!
