Board Member volunteers needed

The RASC Kingston Centre governing Board of Directors is nominally  7 persons elected from the membership at the Annual General Meeting in the fall.
If there are vacancies the Board can appoint members to those vacant positions.  Currently we have some vacancies that you might want to consider:
Vice President: A low impact position that entails backing up the President to run Regular meetings.  This is a good starting get to know the ropes position.  This does NOT commit you to becoming the President next term! We do not have a succession system in place at all.

RASCKC Binocular Raffle!

Celestron 20x80 binoculars

We are holding our first fund raising raffle and tickets are now on sale!
