Total Eclipse April 8, 2024
We are expecting a large number of visitors to enjoy the Total Eclipse with us in Harper.
In preparation, Gillespie County will provide five portable toilets (one handicap accessible) for public use and a roll-off dumpster for collecting trash. They will be located at the St. James Lutheran Church parking lot on 4th Street.

If needed, a volunteer trash pickup will take place on April 9th. We will meet at the Community Park at 8:00 am to clean up any trash on HWY 290. Everyone is invited to help out!
Watch for more information.   

Be prepared to enjoy this historic event:
*Wear certified safe shades to protect your eyes.
*Stock up on groceries and make sure your gas tank is full.
*Dauna’s and Waldo’s will be open.
