Dear Colleagues,

I'm very happy to inform you that the Transit of Venus event we organized at Varsity Stadium last year won two awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The news item is here:

Here are the specific awards we won:

Silver - Public Relations and Community Relations Projects
 
Bronze – Individual Special Event

None of this would have been possible without the help of the many people and organizations who contributed to the event, including the RASC, the IHPST, the FAAQ, Alumni Relations at the University of Toronto, and of course the staff of the Varsity Centre. I'd like to thank you once again for your contributions to the event. I hope that you will pass this information along as appropriate within your organizations.

Many thanks,

Mike Reid
Dunlap Institute
