LaBella Is Hyped for Totality!

Today, millions of people across North America will get the chance to experience a very special natural event when a total solar eclipse will be visible from parts of Mexico, the United States, and Canada.

At LaBella, we are very excited about this rare event, as a handful of our offices happen to be located along the “path of totality,” which measures more than 100 miles wide and crosses 15 U.S. states. Those within the path will see the sun’s corona, or outer atmosphere, which is usually obscured by the bright face of the sun.

LaBella has been preparing for the eclipse in a variety of ways! The Rochester Sunshine Committee assembled goodie bags for every employee that included a pair of LaBella-branded solar glasses and space-themed candy.

Our Buffalo office proudly sponsored Eclipse Readiness Day Programming at Explore & More Children’s Museum. Volunteers from LaBella participated in eclipse-themed, hands-on activities and storytimes in the Tinkering Tank on the first Saturday of every month since January leading up to the total solar eclipse happening today. We had so much fun working with our partners at Explore & More and helping young visitors of the museum gear up for the big event and become familiar with what an eclipse is and how to view it safely.

We hope that many of you can safely enjoy the total solar eclipse—a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
