  1. We would like to attend the Saturday night dinner and stay for the astronomy session afterwards. My husband Gary Heller and I. What should we bring to donate?

    1. Saturday’s dinner is free to all members. You don’t have to bring anything. We have put you on the list. Thanks for registering.
