Are you an active member, The kind that would be missed,
Or are you just contented, That your name is on the list?
Do you attend the meetings, And mingle with the flock,
Or do you meet in private, And criticize and knock?
Do you take an active part, To help the work along,
Or are you satisfied to be, The kind who just belongs?
Do you work on committees, To this there is no trick,
Or leave the work to just a few, And talk about the clique?
So come to meetings often, And help with hand and heart.
Don’t just be a member, But take and active part.
Think this over colleagues, You know what’s right from wrong.
Are you a valued member, Or do you just belong?
I took a 25th anniversary cruise to Hawaii at the end of September and while on board the Star Princess taught 8 basic astronomy “enrichment lectures” which were very well received. I also helped with three star gazing sessions on board during the trip to Hawaii and back.
