The eclipse will NOT be total from Castle Rock, but it will be over 97% total. Come and join us, and avoid the traffic going into Oregon!
Here in southern Washington, the eclipse will be over 97% total. And it will happen about 10:15am, Pacific time. So we are having an informal event here. Just turn up from about 9am onwards at our Center. We will have coffee ready! And I will have our telescope back projecting on to a small screen in front of our building, on Front Ave NW. This is the safest way to see the eclipse, by the way. I do not recommend the use of any of the so-called safe solar viewing glasses that can be bought, and I will not have any of these dangerous items available.
So – join us for some solar eclipse fun at our Center on Monday 21st August from 9am. Eclipse about 10:15am. Stay as long as you like.
International Creation Day is being marked by the Creation and Earth Museum in Santee, CA, where a number of speakers. Other Centers, including the Mount St Helens Creation Center, will be streaming these events. For detailsd of all the speakers and talks, see:
Come to the Mount St Helens Creation Center to watch the presentations, and browse our exhibits and bookstore.
Black Friday will be Bible Friday at the Mount St Helens Creation Center. In the afternoon, we will have some bible-based puzzles for children, and we will have Bibles and other books and DVDs in our bookstore on sale. We will have a number of Bibles in stock, and you will be able to order some other Bibles, that we do not have in stock, for you to collect in a few days. Throughout the day, there will also be brief information about the Bible, how to read it, how to memorize parts of it, how to study it, and where it came from.
Stores in Castle Rock are having special discounts etc on Saturday 25th, so we will be staying open late with them, to join in the celebrations. So all our Bible Friday events will be repeated on the Saturday!
You are invited to join us on our Homeschool Day. There will be two things of interest to you, as homeschooling families:
1. Our homeschool curricula. In particular, we will be featuring the first two books from our Physical Sciences course for teenagers (“high-school-age”), as well as our plans for the future.
2. There will be 10% off sales made this day.
Saturday October 27th is International Creation Day. As usual, our Creation Center will be open. There will be a discount of 10% on everything sold that day.
The recorded keynote address will be broadcast via the Internet at 1:00pm. This year's keynote speaker is Paul Taylor, who will also be hosting the event at Castle Rock, WA.
Admission is free, but we would ask you to consider a donation to our ministry, to help us to continue to stay open during the Winter months.
As in previous years, I will be exhibiting at the Christian Heritage Homeschool Conference. Come and find our booth in the Vendors’ Hall. Try to attend our Vendor’s Workshop on “Mountain Word Science” – our new science curriculum for teenagers. And you might be able to win our special silent auction prize of a free group personAlly-conducted excursion to the volcano!
In view of this, the Creation Center will be closed for the duration of the Conference.
