Meeting Information:

Our general meetings are held the first Sunday of every month at 2 PM in meeting room C on the second floor of the Huntsville / Madison County Public Library. The main branch of the library is located at 915 Monroe Street near the Von Braun Center between Clinton Avenue and Governors Drive, both of which are easily accessible from Memorial Parkway. The meeting rooms are on the second floor just behind and to the left of the reference desk in the center. Library policies prohibit food and drinks in the meeting rooms.

If bad weather or a holiday occurs on that day, our meetings will be held the following Sunday at the same location and time. The business portion of the meeting generally lasts about a half hour, though we usually socialize for about an hour or two. We occasionally go to a movie or have some other fun activity during or after the meeting, usually the Star Trek version of Uno.

Other Events:

We try to have at least one activity each month in addition to our monthly meeting. This activity can range from a community service or fund raising event to another fun, social event, and any combination in between. Sample past activities have included picnics, video parties, convention trips, game nights, ice cream socials, miniature golf, and more. As always, feel free to suggest an activity that you would like to see us do.

Covid Restrictions:

PLEASE NOTE: All of our activities are currently virtual events online due to Covid-19 concerns. The health of our crewmembers is our highest priority. Thank-you for your patience and understanding during this time. We encourage all of our members to wear masks at all times, and to stay as socially distant as possible. Like Spock and the other Vulcans, we want you to live long, and prosper.

Stay Informed:

We have several methods of informing our members of events. Our primary method of communication is via our Facebook Fan Page. Make sure you Like or follow our page. Since we don't pay Facebook to promote our page, you may not be shown our posts unless a bunch of people like the post. Therefore, we recommend that you turn on notifications for our page posts and make our page a favorite so our posts will appear first in your newsfeed. Any last minute announcements, cancellations, or changes will be posted to our Facebook page, so check there if you're uncertain if an event is still happening.

We also have a Twitter account, but it usually contains only the main posts. There's much more interaction and more recent updates on Facebook. Both the Twitter and Facebook newsfeeds are also displayed on our web site's main page, so you don't have to be a member of those services to see our posts.

Technically speaking, we still have a private email list, though we rarely post to it any more. If you want to be added, send an email to Make sure you mention that you want to be added to the WvB email list. All emails are sent via BCC to ensure your email address remains private. Your personal information is never shared with anyone else. Furthermore, only the Commanding Officer has access to that information. You can asked to be removed from the email list at any time.
