The meeting will be held at 7:30pm at the Okanagan College KLO Campus but in a different room... the same Lab Building, but Room C273. Please note the new meeting room location.
For those interested, there will be a pre-meeting dinner at Masala Fusion featuring the cuisine of India. Advance booking is necessary, so please let Colleen know at least before December 13. The menu can be found here: http://www.masalafusionkelowna.com/menu/html. Colleen advises that if you know what you want, let her know. If you want her to order a variety of items for a group, to total about $20 per person, let her know that as well. $20 would get you a samosa, saffron rice, naan, butter chicken, veg. or meat korma, mixed vegetables and cucumber raita. This is open to all RASC OC members. Be among the first 16 to respond!
Winter Solstice Observance Wed. Dec. 21 Pen Henge
winter solstice will take place at 2.44am on this shortest day of the
year. Why not plan to be at the Pen Henge standing stone array on
Munson Mountain in Penticton where interested people will join members
of the Okanagan Centre of RASC for a solstice gathering around 2.45 to 3pm
in anticipation of marking the dramatic sunset (if it is clear) at
3.27pm. At that time the Sun's shadow will extend from the winter
solstice stone to the Heel Stone.
