I’m sad to bring you the news that Trish McCloskey lost her battle with ALS early in the morning of July 25, 2016.

Trish was a long-time member of the PAA and a willing volunteer during our activities – especially Astronomy Day. Those of you who have been members of the PAA over the past five years will surely remember her engaging personality as she handled the children’s activities at our events.

Trish’s disease prevented her from attending our meetings over the past couple of years. We will surely miss our good friend and extend our sympathy to her family.

Though Trish is gone, we can still carry on her fighting spirit. All donations to the Trish McClosky ALS Fund will now go to defray her recent medical costs and the ancillary expenses incurred by her passing.

Thank you from Trish’s family and friends.
