Space-Themed Blue & Gold Banquet Ideas

I found a bunch of neat ideas and links regarding Space.  This is the collection of what I found.

If you live in Utah County or Salt Lake County, Dr. Aaron Orullian is a NASA affiliate representative and presents fantastic presentations!  He loves to talk to groups of any age, school-age to adult, and he doesn't charge!  What he teaches is classified as public information, but the public doesn't generally have access to his information.  Email Dr. Orullian and schedule him as your guest speaker.  You'll be delighted you did!
