Kensington Lion Club Donates Solar Eclipse Glasses

Thanks to Kensington Lions Club and Kensington Library Board, the students and faculty at Thunder Ridge schools had solar eclipse glasses to view the eclipse last April.

141 pairs have been collected since the eclipse and will be sent to Astronomers Without Borders. This is an organization that distributes the glasses, free of charge to people around the world who do not have the means to buy glasses and could not view any eclipse without them. Thanks to everyone who donated their glasses back to this great cause.
