MONTHLY MEETING: “Winter Solstice Social”, Monday, December 17th, 7:30 p.m., Classroom B, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke. Time again for our annual end-of-year get together.  Bring a treat or two to share with others.  The RVAS will provide the beverages.  Bring your latest astro-gizmo, photos, short videos, stories or whatever to share during “open mic” time.  We’ll have our annual end-of-year slideshow, maybe a game or two, and festive music to add to the holiday spirit.  The Deep Space Mysteries you’ve reserved and any unsold ones will be available for $7.50 each (check or exact cash, please).  See elsewhere in this newsletter for more.  Mark the date and plan to spend a fun evening with your RVAS friends!
