A Letter from the Youth Activities Chair.

Dear Fellow Young Astronomers,

My name is Ryan Hannahoe. You might not have heard of me, but I'm the Astronomical League's Youth Activities Chair. I will give one presentation at ALCon 2001 -- "Youth Today".

To gather more information about how our generation is involved in astronomy, I would like to ask you to answer a few questions, listed below. Please include a photograph of yourself (preferably with an astronomical theme or background). The results of this survey will be featured in my presentation. If you would like to contribute, your entry must be received February 1, 2001.

Mail your entry to:

Ryan Hannahoe
1056 Mahlon Drive
Leesport, Pa. 19533

Your participation will be greatly appreciated!

Always in astronomy,
Ryan Hannahoe
Astronomical League Youth Activities Chairman and
ALCon 2001 Webmaster
