It’s Comedy Night at GAAC!

blogpic_orig

Friday February 12 at 8:00 pm is comedy night at the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club! Club fave Glenn Chaple will regale us with his presentation on astronomy humor; Glenn will be briefly preceded by Steve Kolaczkowski with the low down on what’s up for 2016, presented in his inimical style. Hint: there will be planets galore, and even a transit!

But on to the main event. Last year we previewed a small excerpt of Glenn’s “Astronomy Humor” presentation and the full presentation promises to be a rare experience. Those who were there will tell you that you’re in for a laugh-filled and on-topic evening at the Lanesville Community Center. The parking is free, and there’s no cost. What’s not to like? So come on in for all the usual great stuff to eat and drink, and the always-great conversation with your astronomy friends; you don’t want to miss this one.

GAAC meets at 8:00 pm on the second Friday of the month at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan Street in Lanesville. You can learn more at the club’s website, http://gaac.us, facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/GAACpage, and on twitter, @GAACster.

CATV/ECCF Special Event 2.5.16 12pm

On February 5th, 2016 Dave Edwards, President and CEO of the Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF), along with Julie Bishop, VP for Philanthropy, will lead an important discussion at Cape Ann Television (www.capeanntv.org) about addressing the needs of Essex County.

The ECCF is gearing up for an unprecedented major community leadership project, an initiative focused on making a long-term, measurable impact on the quality of life in Essex County. The end result will not only help to guide their philanthropic priorities and strategic grantmaking, but it will also arm local community leaders with the data to help move the region forward. The ECCF will rely heavily on collaborations with funders, elected officials, business leaders and nonprofits to see their vision through.

Please join us on February 5th at 12:00 pm to unite in conversation.
