Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

Join us for sun-themed solar eclipse viewing party! Special viewing glasses will be available to allow you to safely experience this rare event. We'll have crafts and activities set up as well, so bring the kids along. You can stop by anytime between 1-4 pm and stay as long as you like. We do, however, request that you call the office and let us know how many people are in your group so that we can plan accordingly for supplies.
