We will be closed Monday, April 8th for the Great North American Total Solar Eclipse. There is a limited supply of eclipse glasses available on Monday, April 8th from 9-1 at the Perry Village Hall.

Did you know?

  1. The path of totality will be a wider, more populated path than the 2017 eclipse.
  2. An estimated 31.6 million people live in the path of totality this year.
  3. This eclipse will have a longer time in totality than 2017, lasting up to 4 minutes and 28 seconds.
  4. During the 2024 eclipse, the Sun will be near or in a solar maximum, causing heightened solar activity such as the chance to see a coronal mass ejection, streamers along the corona, and prominences coming off the Sun.

What if it is cloudy that day or I have an obstructed view?
