PAS Christmas Dinner

Friday night (Dec. 7, 2012)  The Pontchartrain Astronomy Society  held its annual Christmas party at the Rivertown Science Center in Kenner.  I didn't count but my guesstimate is ~50 people in attendance.  There was lots of good food and fellowship.

It was an especially good night for me.  First my parental pride was on display as I witnessed my daughter, Heather LeBlanc,  inducted as the next president of the PAS.

Then I had the very good fortune to win the grand prize in the raffle: a Coronado PST !  This new scope will offer a new aspect to my observing and I look forward to learning more about our closest star.

The evening concluded with a laser light show set to the music of Pink Floyd at the Kenner Planetarium's 50-foot domed screen.  Thanks to all PAS members and the staff at the Rivertown Science Center for a memorable evening.

  1. Wow, I adore this Christmas bash!! This event looks blasting. We also attended a Christmas dinner party at one of the best San Francisco venues. There were so yummy Thai and Mexican foods. The food was so tasty and dance corner was also arranged amazingly for huge crowd. Totally enjoyed that party a lot!
