TVS Presents

   Two topics highlight the December potluck, club plans for a loaner scope equipped with a solar filter, and eating -- not necessarily in that order. (See more details at "For your consideration" on page 6.) As you did last year, please plan to bring a culinary contribution that will feed ten fellow diners. The first letter of your last name determines the dish you should bring. Please arrange a trade with another member if you would prefer to bring something different.
