Open House Nights 2018
We will be looking for as many volunteers as possible, especially when there is clear weather when the crowds can be substantial. 

Summer Work Parties
With the good weather, we will need as much help as possible for the Observatoy projects. At the top of the agenda is putting in a new floor in the A-Dome. Look for announcements on the web calendar and on the Google Group.

Board Election Results At the May Meeting, we elected 2 new board members: Jim Bakic and Jim Schroeter. Jeff Kraehnke was elected for a 2nd term.

New Solar Observatory Dome
We decided to replace the dome on the Solar Observatory rather than buying a tarp. This has immediately solved our leaking issues.
