Lovettsville’s 2nd Annual Mayfest on Saturday, May 25th

We are stil looking for volunteers, so am asking that anyone with the least inclination to pitch in and do some relief work to come and do so! Especially needed are any members with solar scopes, or those who have interest in promoting IDA or other Dark Sky initiatives. The Mayfest is a full day of old-fashioned family fun, including live music, local vendors, food and drink, and even a pie-eating contest! For more information visit
