InReach begins!

To all LAS Members Old and New-

2018 is quite a year for our society as it is our 85th year of bringing the night sky to the public. It is our LAS Legacy year. In 2017, we, as a team with over 200 members, broke all records for public outreach as we had close to 20,000 people attend our events. We extended far beyond Greater Louisville as we traveled together to Western Kentucky where we shared the Solar Eclipse with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, students, members and visitors.

While last year was a great year for public outreach, we are going to change around a bit and proclaim 2018 as a year of LAS InReach in which we educate our members, old and new, about the LAS and what it has to offer. So far, we have had several public outreach events as diverse as Scout University, the Parklands of Floyds Fork Membership meeting and setting up scopes on top of a New Albany restaurant to celebrate the Blue Moon. Now, InReach begins.
