After much deliberation and thought, Director at Large Ed Fraini has tendered his resignation from the Houston Astronomical Society so that he can focus on improving his health. I wish Ed well with his recovery and thank him for his many years of service to the club. Ed's thoughtfulness and wisdom will be missed at our board meetings, but he has promised to remain a fixture at our General meetings and at the dark site. Good luck and continued progression toward your recovery, Ed!
Ed has spoken to Don Selle, who has graciously offered to step in to fill the role, pending an election by the Membership. Our bylaws require at least 15 days notice of said election, so we will conduct the election to fill this vacancy at our August 6 General meeting. This post will serve as formal notification to the Membership.
President – Houston Astronomical Society
