Welcome: Friends of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory

Dear Friends,

I'm pleased to share with you that a new organization has formally taken shape: Friends of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory.

Friends of the DAO is a registered non-profit BC Society led by an excellent group of people who collectively have a well-established track record of advancing public engagement with the Observatory. 

We are in good hands!

You can find out more about the Society on their website, or on their facebook page,

I wish this group the very best and I look forward to supporting their efforts. 

To that end, I hope to see you at their first fundraiser: Science and Culture in the Inner Harbour featuring  Quirks and Quarks host Bob McDonald. November 20th 2015 7pm - 9:30pm. More information and tickets here:

Warm regards, Lana
Lana Popham, MLA Saanich South
