Around town

Museum of American G.I. proudly presents Lest We Forget

The Museum of American G.I. proudly presents The AVTT Traveling Vietnam Wall. All are invited to visit the wall and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country from November 12-15.

A special opening ceremony will take play on November 12 at noon, and an evening ceremony at 5pm will feature wreath presentations by all branches of the military, a rifle salute and taps.

The exhibit is a great opportunity to teach students about the history and the meaning of the memorial and others like it. Children are encouraged to create crafts like artificial poppies to decorate the Traveling Wall.

Movies in the Park: Heavy Weights

A fun night out for the whole family starts at 6pm in Wolf Creek Park on Friday, November 13. “Heavy Weights” is a Disney movie that promises nonstop laughter. The movie is about Camp Hope, a camp for overweight boys. The camp that was supposed to be a fun way for the kids to be more active soon became a nightmare when a new owner takes over. Follow the story as campers rebel against this fitness guru and hilarity ensues.
