From the Program Chair

Kate Otto, Program Chair

Does it really matter when the AAAP Club was founded? What really matters is that AAAP is a great club for amateur astronomers.

For fifty years, AAAP members have enjoyed sharing their enthusiasm for astronomy. We have built two observatories, hosted over 400 lectures and 20 star parties, undertaken thousands of hours of outreach at local schools and at our observatory in Washington Crossing State Park, and this year we are going to celebrate in style!

Please join us. The AAAP 50th Anniversary Planning Committee is actively looking for volunteers and sponsors for the dinner in late spring of 2013. Also, we are asking you to share any club memorabilia or photos that the committee could use in advertisements, invitations, our program or a slide show. All items will be returned. Please send an email response to 50years@princetonastronomy.org.

Thank you and a Happy, Happy Holiday Season to all.
