Arlene Martel, who has been in literally hundreds of roles on television and on film, appeared at the Southern California Astronomy Exposition (SCAE) in Oceanside, California, on Saturday, July 12, 2008.  This was the first weekend of the SCAE in 2008, and consisted of a Seminar Symposium at Oceanside Photo and Telescope (OPT) in Oceanside and an evening lecture and Star Party at Palomar Community College. 

Arlene was at both the OPT and Palomar College events, and fans were able to meet and chat with Arlene.

March 8, 2008 - Hollywood Magic Castle

On March 8th, a group of about 30 people enjoyed a social evening at the Hollywood Magic Castle.  Celebrities in attendance were BarBara Luna, Arlene Martel, and Bobby Clark from the original "Star Trek" television series, and Bob May, Robot B-9 in the original "Lost In Space" television series. 

The event was hosted by Chris Knoll, long-time Magician Member of the Academy of Magical Arts and owner of Ovation Productions.   Co-hosting the event was Mindy Masters, Life Member of the Academy of Magical Arts, and Chris' friend.

The group was able to privately reserve the Albert Peller Theater for the evening.  The group initially met in the Peller Theater for check-in and to receive souvenirs of the evening, before going to dinner at 6pm. The group had a wonderful dinner and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.   After dinner, the group was entertained in the Palace of Mystery Theater by a great show.  Then, the group returned to the Peller Theater to see a private magic show by Chris and Mindy, and presentations to some of the celebrity guests.  The evening was an unqualified success according to all who attended.
