Invitation to the Pegasus Society’s Next Gathering, April 26

The Pegasus Society, the Texas Astronomy Program’s recognition group for planned-giving donors, is scheduled to gather for its annual meeting (its fourth) on Friday, April 26, at 10:30 a.m. The event will be at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, above the Carillon restaurant. All BoV members are invited, starting with those who have included McDonald Observatory or the Department of Astronomy in their estate plans and including anyone interested in information on making a planned gift — a gift that anyone can make.
