Feb 3, 2011
By Amy Quick, Director of Membership
As many of you have heard, February is our Member Appreciation Month! This is a time the Museum staff dedicates to honoring the people who have supported us the most – our members.
Every February, we enjoy amazing presentations and weekends full of free activities for Museum members. For 2011, we have added a behind the scenes tour of our restoration hangar with Museum curator Stewart Bailey, and a member-only Star Party in our IMAX Theater. In addition to all the wonderful people involved throughout the month, we are thrilled to welcome Dr. Rob Holman from Oregon State University. Dr. Holman is the founder of the Coastal Imaging Lab at OSU and has spent his life studying the inactions of ocean waves and beaches. He will be speaking at the Shifting Sands event on Feb. 12, and will be followed by an exclusive showing of the new (to us) IMAX movie, Ultimate Wave Tahiti!
Member Appreciation Month kicks off this weekend with a Kids Day on Saturday from 10:15am to approximately 1pm. The event will feature a planetarium, book reading, and Steve the “Balloon Guy.” We will also provide a special kids menu at our Cosmo Cafe in the Space Museum.
Thank you again to our Museum members, and we hope to see you throughout the month!
