Meaningful Movies screens inspiring documentaries on 3rd Fridays of the month. Free movies, free popcorn too! Our August screening is Omisoka! A revolution in 4 part Harmony.  Come learn the history of resistance to the apartheid system of South Africa and how music and song forged a bond of solidarity amongst people of different backgrounds, young and old. The film was 9 years in the making and won the audience award at the Sundance Film Festival–come see why.

Love’s Labour’s Lost

GreenStage, a Shakespeare in the Park company, has arrived! Thanks for the heads up from Catherine Grady. “If you’ve never seen it, you should try it out. It’s a very relaxed atmosphere, very entertaining acting, and totally FREE! (Donations heartily accepted, of course.)”

Build a Park at Bayview Triangle!

Come out for a work party in the City’s newest park! Join the Tree Ambassadors, members of the Katherine Shaye Community Arts Center and your neighbors in renovating the traffic triangle at 15th Ave and Main Street S. Help take the first steps towards creating a wonderful landscape that all will enjoy, by helping pick-up trash, weed, and mulch. Meet at the Shell Station on Main Street S. and 15th at 9 am. Tools, gloves, safety vests, and snacks will be provided. This is the first phase of on-going efforts to clean up this area and enhance that end of our business district with art and pedestrian amenities.
