park staff updated

Dr Elaina Hyde, the director of the Allan I Carswell Observatory (AICO) at York University sent out an official message. In it were copied various park staff and supporters of the Killarney Provincial Park Observatory (KPPO).

She referred to my appointment:

You have been approved... as Astronomer In Residence at Killarney Park.

It's really happening! It's official.

Now the park staff and supporters know I'll be heading up to help them out.

I'm excited. And a little nervous. I'm really looking forward to working at the park and running astronomy outreach events. It is a tremendous honour.

Takes me back... when I ran an event at Awenda many moons ago. Camping and astronomy. Love it.



Prepared and sent a thank you letter.
