An Invitation to SJAA Members

Patrick Donnelly


On Saturday, August 26, 2006, the Fremont Peak Observatory Association (FPOA) will be celebrating it 20th anniversary. Because the idea for the FPOA was born in the SJAA and the many cross memberships, I would like to extend a formal invitation to all SJAA members to attend the FPOA 20th Anniversary Party (Star-B-Que) at the observatory in Fremont Peak State Park.

For this occasion the FPOA plans to have the Star-B-Que catered. No final decision on the menu has been made, but the FPOA is considering barbecues and/or baked chicken. We shall also have specials for vegetarians. Each group or family should bring a dish to pass around. A larger than normal raffle with several grand prizes is planned. Also, as usual, we plan to have a well-known speaker for the event.

If you would like to attend, please make a reservation. You can logon and send an E-mail to or send an E-mail to me at You can also leave a message on the observatory’s voice mail at 831-623-2465. Please leave your name, number of people in your party, and that you are an SJAA member. If you are a member of FPOA, please note that also, so we don’t count you twice. Finally, if you send an E-mail, please copy Mike Koop, so that he has an idea of the number of SJAA members that plan to attend.

Hope to see you there.

Patrick Donnelly, President FPOA
