Please remember that guests can also read these posts, so don't be too specific about your location or provide other information you don't want the whole world to see.  One may want to PM other members in your area and meet at a public location.

What an honor to be part of Imperial Polk Astronomical Society. One of our private events is the state Pow Wow of the Seminole tribe. We will be sharing & teaching descendants of the tribe the night sky.
