The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

Event Description

The Collins Story: On the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing. The greatest achievement in history, landing men on the moon, took the work of thousands, but it would have been impossible if one man, Arthur Collins, had not dedicated his life to perfecting radio communication and building the company that invented space communication and has brought us the voice and pictures of every astronaut for 50 years, the Collins Radio Company.  Brought to you in collaboration with the Arthur A. Collins Legacy Association.  Free admission sponsored by the McIntyre Foundation of Cedar Rapids.
