Spartan Solar Eclipse Glasses to benefit Veterans Wall of Honor

Lima City Schools’ families, alumni and supporters can view the April 8 solar eclipse safely and in style with custom-made Spartan glasses.

The district is selling the glasses for $5 with proceeds going to toward the creation of a Veterans Wall of Honor in front of Lima Senior High School.

Lima has been named one of the 20 best places in North American to view the solar eclipse. Looking directly into the sun can be very harmful and people are being warned to only do so if they have glasses designed for viewing the solar eclipse.

People can reserve glasses by filling out a form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1GVuwCb9wUoMXzH_MCN-TKy2ed9pIJXOPiWJiSUCmHBU/edit

The glasses are expected to be available in February and cash payment will be due then. People will be notified when they are here.

For information, contact Beth Jokinen at 419-996-3411 or bjokinen@spartan.limacityschools.org.

The district is currently raising funds to build a Veterans Wall of Honor in front of Lima Senior High School. It will include the name, year of graduation and branch of service for graduates of Central, South and Lima Senior High Schools.

Veterans and/or family members must complete a form to be included in the project. A digital form can be accessed at www.limacityschools.org. Go to the “Community” tab and find “Veterans Wall of Honor.”

No district money is being used for the wall. Those wanting to donate should make checks out to the Lima City Schools Foundation, with “veteran wall” written in the memo box. Donations can be sent to: Lima City Schools, C/O Beth Jokinen, 755 St. Johns Ave. Lima, OH, 45804.
