'Star Trek' club plans open house Sept. 10

The USS Antares, a local Star Trek club, invites anyone interested in the legendary TV sci-fi series to attend an open house from noon to 4 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Mid-Columbia Libraries, 1620 S. Union St., Kennewick.

The open house pays tribute to the 45th anniversary of Star Trek, which debuted on national TV on Sept. 8, 1966.

The club will accept nonperishable food donations for Second Harvest organization. For each food item donated that person will receive a ticket for a drawing for Star Trek prizes.

There also will be a collection barrel for donations of coupons for the Coupons for Soldiers group.

The open house will also have a replica of the starship Enterprise's 10-forward recreation lounge on site.
