This Friday evening, November 11 at 8:00 pm, GAAC is thrilled to have an old friend, UNH’s John Gianforte, whom some of you may remember from a series of talks earlier this year at the Sawyer Free Library, or from his previous GAAC talks.
If prior experience is any guide, John will hold us all spellbound with a brand-new presentation he uses in his Engineering classes as well as in his Astronomy classes at UNH.
The talk is titled “Is Astronomy Really Relevant?” and along with some general astronomy, John will address some topics that illustrate why it makes sense for humans to know at least a little bit about astronomy, where the field is going and where it is today. All in all this looks like a perfect presentation for a cool November evening.
Come on in for a great night with seasonal goodies and old friends, great entertainment and great conversation. You’ll leave knowing something you don’t know now, and after the meeting you may get a telescopic close-up look at the not-quite-full moon to boot. You can decide for yourself whether or not it’s Super.
GAAC meets at 8:00pm on the second Friday of the month at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan St in Lanesville. There is plenty of free parking, no dues or fees, and all are welcome. No special knowledge is required to have a great time. For more info on the club, see the website at http://gaac.us, the club’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/GAACpage, or follow us on Twitter, @GAACster.
Paul Jernberg, Music Director of St. Monica and St. Lucy Parishes in Methuen, is pleased to announce three concerts to be held this November to raise funds for refugees and internally displaced peoples (IDPs) in the Middle East. The concerts will feature a choral performance of Canadian-American composer Roman Hurko’s Liturgy No. 3, an English setting of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, as well as a beautiful sung Compline Night Prayer for the Feast of St. Cecilia. All net proceeds will be used to provide food, shelter, and medical assistance to IDPs and Christian refugees through the Knights of Columbus Christian Refugee Relief Fund, under the auspices of St. Monica and St. Lucy Parishes and the Knights of Columbus Council 14725. The concerts will be presented on Friday, November 18 at 7:00 pm at St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Beverly, MA, on Sunday, November 20 at 5:30 pm at St. Monica Catholic Church in Methuen, MA, and on Tuesday, November 22 at 7:00 pm at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Nashua, NH. No tickets will be sold but a free-will offering will be accepted. Light refreshments will be served at a reception following each concert. For more information or to help sponsor these efforts please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Donations are also accepted via the youcaring.com fundraising page (656504).
