The Great American Eclipse IS a really big deal! This is the first time since 1776 that the “path of the total eclipse” crosses the entire continental United States. In our area we will be able to see a nearly 99% complete solar eclipse.
During the eclipse - Join us for an Eclipse Party with grilled hotdogs, “sun” tea & moon pies. The Eclipse begins at 1:08 pm, peaks at 2:37 pm and only lasts about 2 minutes, and is over by 4:01. We will provide a supply of free ISO-approved Eclipse-viewing glasses.
BYOC- BRING YOUR OWN CHAIR!
Project Fun too! Participants will also have the opportunity to create stepping stones to commemorate the Great American Eclipse. We will pour a round stepping stone that can be dated, document a handprint, and embellished. We will provide some embellishments (you can bring your own too) to press into your stepping stone.
Caution: It is NEVER safe to look at the sun without protection at any time. We will have a supply of free ISO-approved glasses for viewing the eclipse, but participants are responsible for protecting their eyes and the eyes of any children in their care at all times during the event.
