[Astronomy Club of Akron Logo] March


 

MARCH 27, 2020 - General Membership Meeting at 8:00 PM has been  CANCELLED.

As you are likely aware, the novel coronavirus COVID-19 has reached Northeast Ohio with confirmed cases. The health and safety of ACA members and the community remains our primary concern. Governor DeWine held press conferences specifically asking all institutions to implement actions to minimize the impact of COVID-19 spreading. While we recognize that these actions may cause a temporary disruption, please know that we are making decisions to minimize the advancement of the disease. To that end, the ACA Board has decided to cancel the ACA meeting scheduled for Friday, March 27th. Our scheduled speakers, Jodi and Roy McCullough have agreed to return to present in the fall. The board will make decisions about future meetings and club events as needed.

Please keep your eye on this website and, if you're a member, your email account for important club communication in the future.
