MONTHLY MEETING: Annual Winter Solstice Social, Monday, December 18th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke. Time again for our annual end-of-year gathering. Bring a treat or two to share with others. The RVAS will provide the beverages. Also bring your latest astro-gizmo, photos, short videos, stories or whatever to share during “open mic” time. We’ll also have our annual end-of-year slideshow, maybe a game or two, and holiday and other music to put us in a festive mood. And who knows else? But mark your calendar and plan to spend a fun evening with your RVAS friends! See elsewhere in this issue for additional information.
