Summit DD Prepares for the Solar Eclipse

On April 8, 2024 we will have an amazing opportunity to be along the path of totality for the solar eclipse. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The event begins at 1:59pm, as a partial eclipse, and will last through 4:29pm. The total solar eclipse (totality) will be visible everywhere in Summit County from 3:13 pm-3:17 pm.

You will be able to reach any Summit DD employee via email or phone. Read More ›
