Recycle your eclipse glasses

The PAA is collecting all eclipse glasses (used or otherwise) to donate them to Astronomers Without Borders for school children in South America, Africa, and Asia for future eclipses. People in and around Peterborough can drop their glasses off at Trevis Optometry at 234 Hunter St. W.. PAA Members can also bring their glasses to the next meeting on May 3 (see details below). Anyone from outside Peterborough or for whom these options are impossible, please contact Nick Valentino to make alternative arrangements.
