I have two brief items of import to the AAAP membership that need updating. The first is the status of our group purchase of AAAP logo shirts and hats. At this writing, the order is ready to be submitted so this is final notice. If you have not, yet, let me know what you are interested in ordering, a T-shirt, a “Polo” shirt or a hat, contact me ASAP and send in your payment. T-shirts with the AAAP logo are $15, Polo shirts are $25 and hats (adjustable) are $15. All items are in black with the two-color logo embroidered on. Let me know the size(s), adult or child, you need and either send the payment to my Pay Pal account (firstname.lastname@example.org) or mail a check to me at 29 George Washington Dr., Monroe Township, NJ 08831. If you hurry, you can still get one of these sought after items. I will submit the order four days after the Sidereal Times is made available.
The other major event, and it’s a big one, is the AAAP Expedition to Oregon to view the August 21st, Total Eclipse of the Sun on property next door to John Church’s brother. As I write this, there are still two motel rooms left under the reservation that I acquired several months ago. Sign-in is August 19 and sign-out is August 21. These rooms are in the Motel 6 Portland-Wilsonville, Oregon. They are about an hour’s drive to our viewing site. So if you are at all interested in either of these rooms, please contact me, ASAP. I have no doubt that this will be an event none of us, who will be in attendance, will forget. So don’t miss out on this opportunity to be a part of the most far-flung AAAP “Field Trip” in memory.
As always, feel free to contact me at either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 609-273-1456. Wishing all AAAP members and those they hold dear,
