Over forty members of the Springville Senior Center gathered outside Monday, August 21, to watch the solar eclipse. Wearing protective eye-gear, they excitedly chatted with each other about the changes they were observing. The eclipse party started at eleven with gift bags handed out that included solar glasses, a milky way candy bar, some star burst candies, and other goodies.
Guessing games, an astronomy word search, and a ‘build your phases of the eclipse’ using Oreo cookies on a plate, were some of the fun games being enjoyed inside the center.
The Springville Senior Center is open eight to three on week days and offers friendship, lunch daily, and many activities. Anyone fifty and over is invited to join.
