The Latest News & Upcoming Events
H2O Open House
Our first open house for this year was held on May 4th at the club's dark sky site,
Hidden Hill Observatory
aka H2O. Gert Gottschalk took some nice
of the event.
We need a new Program Director and Vice President
Due to increased responsibilities at work, Todd Billeci will no longer be able to
serve a TVS Vice-President and as the Program Director. Anyone interested in either
(or both) of these positions is encouraged to contact any of the club officers via
email or at the monthly meeting. All are encouraged to take an active role in TVS,
including influencing the changing vision of the club.
As of this writing, there is no speaker for June's meeting.

TVS Logo Wear
You may have seen some TVS members wearing shirts and jackets
embroidered with the TVS logo. If you are interested in obtaining an
embroidered logo item, you can do so by ordering whatever you would like
Land's End's Corporate Sales
section and specifying TVS logo #0118948. You will need to set up an account, which will
ask for the logo number and the TVS customer number (3452021).
TVS has also set up shop at
for members to buy non-embroidered TVS logo wear. You can have the TVS
logo put on t-shirts, mugs, buttons, hats, coasters, etc. You buy
through Cafepress, and Cafepress sends TVS a portion of the proceeds.
Visit the web site to see all the TVS logo possibilities.
