City of Centerville to host eclipse glasses giveaway events

The City of Centerville is giving away 2,500 sets of solar eclipse glasses during two giveaway events on March 15!

 

The Golf Club at Yankee Trace and Cornerstone Park will host the events from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. City Council and staff will hand out 1,250 pairs of glasses at each location. People are encouraged to carpool as parking will be limited at each location.

“We want to help keep residents safe while they enjoy the total solar eclipse on April 8,” said Community Resources Coordinator Drew Simon.  “When used correctly, these glasses will allow our residents to be prepared for the once-in-a-lifetime event.”

 

Because of the expected popularity of the glasses, tickets will be distributed by City staff at each location beginning at 3:00 p.m. to those waiting in line. Each person will receive one ticket, and you must have a ticket to receive a pair of glasses. The City will work to ensure those with disabilities will be able to participate; please reach out to a staff member to make accommodations.

 

Proof of residency will not be required to receive a pair of glasses.

 

The City will notify the public when glasses are gone on its social media pages and centervilleohio.gov.
