Monthly meeting @ Fairview Community Center
Jul 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Speaker: Suresh Sreenivasan

Topic: Prepping For the Total Eclipse

Monthly meetings are open to all – you needn’t be an MAS member to attend. These meetings normally take place the first Thursday of each month at the Fairview Community Center in Roseville (“Great Room”). Monthly meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and last about two hours.

Each meeting features Board member introductions, general announcements, “Better Know a Constellation”, normally presented by a member, main speaker (around 45 minutes duration) and an after-meeting social gathering. Society business is occasionally transacted as needed.

NOTE: Meeting time and / or location sometimes change to take advantage of special program opportunities. Please check the MAS homepage and/or recorded message at 952-467-2426 for the latest information regarding the meeting.
