Club Business: Annual Election

Program: 2 Minute Speakers
As we need a little time to take care of our club business, we hesitate to invite an out-of-town speaker.
Years ago we invited our members to present short, detailed 2 min talks on astro topics of interest to them.
This has turned out to be so popular, that we often have many volunteers.
No problem, we just continue these interesting presentations the next month.
So please sign up now:

This year you can choose any article you like from any astronomy magazine, newspaper or book . . .
and focus in depth on any aspect of it that interests you.

Thank you for volunteering! and broadening our list of resources and topics.
