Star Party Friday evening April 20, 2018 was awesome. We had two astronomers bring their professional telescopes. We saw the moon’s surface in great detail. We also saw Venus and the Big Dipper. Thank you to astronomers Jerry, Mike and Robbin. To all who attended it was a night to remember. I heard one of our young attendees say he never liked science before until now.

    Justice in School Funding: A Constitutional Imperative
    Pennsylvania has the greatest gap between rich and poor school districts in the nation. This disparity is the result of one of the lowest state contributions to education in the country. Tens of thousands of students living in poverty languish in under-resourced schools as a result of inadequate and inequitable school funding.
