Update on recent events

  • We had 5 RCA volunteers last Saturday night at King’s Raven Winery. We had about 35 attendees and a good time was had by all.
  • Last night at Mountaindale, we had about 80 girl scouts see the stars through RCA telescopes. It’s a wonderful thing to hear the “Oohs and Ahhs” from kids seeing the rings of Saturn for the first time!
  • Also on Saturday tomorrow (in addition to RCA at Glendoveer), we have 11 RCA volunteers at Maryhill. We have all the volunteers we need at Maryhill.
