June is the month for all SVAS members to renew.

Remember time flies when your are having so much fun! Where else can you get so much for only $36.00 a year, or only $3.00 a month, what a deal, that’s around the cost for a cup of coffee from your local neighborhood caffeine pusher. Monthly Member Meetings, with some great speakers! Monthly **Star*Party** get-togethers with like minded people. The ability to become an SVAS Observatory Member with personal access to HGO for only an additional $48.00 per year, remember the Dome is now open for your use also. The chance to share your passion and knowledge with others, and better yet, the opportunity to gleam knowledge for yourself, and who knows maybe you might form what could turn out to be life long friendships.
