Why was the category "dwarf planet" created. HRPO will host a session for eight-to-twelve year-olds on Saturday 7 March from 10am to 12pm. The session will consist of visual presentations and demonstrations regarding this new category. The cost is five dollars per EBR-parish kid and six dollars per other-parish kid.
