    Don Treworgy of Mystic Seaport
    From: Carl Herzog
    Date: 2008 Dec 15, 05:53 -0800

    I'm very sad to have to pass on this news from Mystic Seaport:
    
    Don Treworgy, the longtime head of the planetarium at Mystic Seaport,
    has been diagnosed with a very quickly progressing cancer,
    cholangiocarcinoma. Sadly, his outlook may be a few months, at most.
    
    NavList members will be familiar with Don's hospitality and
    contributions during the Celestial Navigation Weekends held at Mystic,
    but it is difficult to sum up his many, many contributions to
    astronomy and navigation education through the Seaport Planetarium
    over the last 35 years. Mystic Seaport will be renaming the
    planetarium in his honor.
    
    A tribute to him was planned for next week at the Seaport, but Don's
    doctors have prescribed "no crowds" due to his lowered immunity while
    undergoing chemotherapy. The Seaport hopes to do the tribute in
    January sometime.
    
    Don's mailing address for cards or notes is:
    91 Noble Ave
    Noank, CT 06340
    or don.sky@att.net
    
    In addition, Don and Lynn have set up a webpage to allow friends to be
    informed of Don's progress.
    
    The page is on a site called CarePages. You DO have to become a
    "member": list your e-dress and compose [and verify] a password. There
    is a photo gallery, and the opportunity to select that your message be
    viewed only by the page's "manager"(Don), rather than the full
    "membership".
    
    To access this information, log on to CarePages at:
    http://www.carepages.com/
    
    select CarePages website name =
    
    dontreworgy
    
    Don has received many gratifying notes, cards, calls, plus well-wishes
    through messengers. Obviously, he cannot respond to each in a timely
    manner, and so the CarePages postings can be a connection that might
    otherwise not be made.
