North Bay Astronomy Club Celebrates the life of Harold Healy
Harold became involved with the Sudbury Astronomy Club to pursue his hobby, and was President of the club for a number of years Harold often referred to himself as the Great-Know-It-All of astronomy. Harold acquired his Messier and NGC certificates from RASC and SAC. He created and organized the Frozen Banana Star Party (FBSP) which occurred twice a year. A lifetime pursuit of astronomy lead him to be an active member of the Sudbury Astronomy Club and North Bay Astronomy Club. Harold's other wish was to have a huge party, Irish style with his favourite cigars and brandy to celebrate his life with his friends. We will honour his last wish. We will eat, drink and share all of those precious memories we have of Harold. We will update the site as to where and when this will be held.
