Springfield, MO: “The Great American Eclipse”

The “Great American Eclipse” has been a source of excitement throughout the United States. While Springfield, Missouri was not in “the path of totality”, we were still fortunate to have 96% coverage. Creekside had a viewing party in the parking lot behind the Lodge. We passed out moon pies, star cakes, and solar glasses. The community members noted changes around them—not only in the moon covering the sun, but also the crescent shadows on the ground; the birds falling asleep in the trees; and the turning on of streetlights. It was an event long to be talked about and remembered.

Quality Life-We will create a living environment that radiates love, peace, spiritual contentment, dignity and safety, while encouraging personal independence.
