Publicity Chairperson Open Contact news media, and e-mail and blog to raise public awareness of EAS activities.  
Outreach Chairperson Open Coordinate requests from public for EAS member volunteers to conduct star parties or presentations at visits to schools, senior centers, scout meetings, etc. We often have requests for members of the EAS to come and help with an ‘astronomy night’ event from local schools, scout groups, senior homes, or similar groups. Usually this would be in the form of a star party at their gathering, or perhaps a short slide show or night sky talk. Providing education and support to the community about interest astronomy is one of the main missions of the EAS. A star party night can be a rewarding event for all involved. Please email Mark Folkerts with your interest (or suggestions).  
Sidewalk Astronomy Committee   Plan and conduct urban/suburban sidewalk astronomy events to allow passers-by to experience astronomy. Needs 2-3 people for each event, and to schedule events. We are looking for volunteers who could do a series of Sidewalk Astronomy sessions this spring and summer, at a local park or public venue. For safety, moral support, and effectiveness, this should be done in teams of at least two people with telescopes. Special events like eclipse or comets especially draw the interest of the public.
