S. since 1918.  Since the only land locations where the eclipse will be visible are in the U.

  1. Hello! I am interested in attending the March 30, 2016, lecture at 7:00 p.m with Ken Postle.
    Where will this be held? Also, do I need to be a member to attend?
    Thank you!

    1. It will be held at North Gate (1873 Old Louisquiset Pike, Lincoln, RI. All lectures are free and open to the public. Please come and enjoy. Thank you.

  2. Have been going to Christmas service and caroling at Quaker meeting house for many years and look forward to it. Is it scheduled for 2016? I was sick last year and was upset that I couldn’t go.
