Keystone Donation

In 1972, Mom made a donation to then Keystone Junior College to help support their purchase of a Telescope and the establishment of an observatory for the region - see her letter at bottom of page.

Before Dad's passing, a gift was made to the Thomas Cupillari Astronomy Observatory at Keystone College in Mom's name. The observatory maintains a wonderful telescope, formerly owned by Dave Garroway of "The Today Show" and now has this smaller, very powerful telescope. This telescope has a GPS unit, and after establishing the proper settings, allows students to load the code for any star and have the telescope locate it.

Below you see the plaque in Mom's memory and Frank with Tom Cupillari, the director of the Observatory, with the telescope.  Click here to visit the observatory.
