We are looking forward to our final pre-eclipse event on August 14th from 7-8 pm at the Elmwood Murdock Elementary school in Elmwood, NE. We have canceled the viewing party which was to be held during the eclipse on August 21st. It turns out that since we are so close to the actual path of totality that everybody is planning on driving south to actually experience the total eclipse!

We’ll keep you updated on when our viewing glasses arrive if you need to pick up a pair to view the eclipse safely. REMEMBER: Do not look at the sun without special protection. This can permanently damage your eyes.
