Monthly Meeting

Monday, September 18th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom A, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke. Our meeting comes nearly one month “PGAE”—post Great American Eclipse!  With so many RVAS members having traveled or otherwise engaged in eclipse activities, our meeting will devote ample time for sharing photos and/or commentary about your exploits and experiences.  And we’ll also have our regular monthly What’s Up, Outreach reports and other news and information.  So, pop your pix onto a flash drive or DVD and make plans to join in the Great RVAS Post-Eclipse Confab at the September 18th meeting!
