September 22, 2023 – The Santa Fe College Chapter of the Association of Florida Colleges (AFC at SF) is organizing a Fall Social event. This gathering is scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 28, 2023, from 4-6 p.m. at the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium on SF’s Northwest Campus, 3000 NW 83 Street, Gainesville.
The complimentary event aims to strengthen bonds among members, offer a space for networking, and expand their understanding of the wonders of our night skies.
Attendees will have the privilege of experiencing a night sky tour hosted by our esteemed planetarium director, James C. Albury. He will present “The Tale of Two Doggies,” the fascinating story of Orion’s two hunting dogs. He will also provide guidance on identifying them.
This event promises an educational treat and a fantastic opportunity to socialize with peers. Members are invited to attend and bring a prospective member as a guest. This is a chance for interested individuals to learn more about the association and engage with its current members. Light refreshments will be available.
