Still looking for Land

Just a reminder that we (RASC-Kingston Centre) are *still* looking for land within an hour of Kingston.  Our intent is to use it as a members observing site, and to build observatory homes for our telescopes.
We routinely monitor realtor.ca and kijiji.ca for land sales but perhaps you know of someone who may not be advertising on these sites, that may wish to sell property.

Ruth Hicks - Past President RASCKC

Ruth Hicks was a longstanding life member of the RASC Kingston Centre.
She served as President in 1986 and 1987 and Secretary in 1994 and 1995.
 
 

Donations, Donations, Donations

Greetings, happy holidays and donations.
If you happen to be going to Thursdays Holiday Dinner and are thinking or making a donation to the RASC-KC and our outreach program, then would be a good time.  I hear a rumour that the ***Treasurer*** will be there and would be more than happy to accept cheques and other pieces of coloured paper for the cause.
Donations are made for the calendar year and are eligible for a CRA Tax Receipt.  Our CRA Registration #: 827905720RR0001
