Backpack Feeding Program
If it’s the third Wednesday of the month, you can find us at Scott’s Run. We had a nice turnout for our volunteer effort and our group keeps growing. We packed food bags with weekend meals for school children in Monongalia County. For more information on this volunteer opportunity, see the Backpack Feeding Program.

Back to the Moon
On January 27, Association members saw the planetarium show Back to the Moon for Good. The show started with a overview of the first era of space exploration and what that taught us. Then members got to see the different engineering and innovative ideas being considered by 30 private teams competing for the $30 million prize. There are only five teams left – India, Israel, Japan, and the United States (2). They launch this year to go back to the moon for good. Welcome to the New Space Race!
