Hamilton RASC members listening to Dr. Shelton
On Jan. 4, 2017, the Hamilton Centre met for its regular monthly meeting. Attendance was excellent, with about 50 people present, many from the general public, and everyone was looking forward to the lecture by Dr. Ian Shelton.
Ed Mizzi began the proceedings with a welcome to everyone. He displayed a slide with the agenda on it and briefly introduced the topics for the meeting. He mentioned several club activities and advantages of membership and encouraged people to get involved.
Ed introduced Bob Prociuk, Board member, whose portfolio includes vice president and memberships. Bob discussed the benefits of membership at the Hamilton Centre and the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. He welcomed both new members and members of the public. Our newest members include Brynne Degenhardt, Thomas Jensen, Chris Newhouse, Tyler Park, John Reinsborough and Lesley Reinsborough-Degenhardt. Our total is now 114.
Then Ed Mizzi discussed outreach and also encouraged members to participate in these fun and enjoyable activities with the public. Ed
