Revitalization Committee Hosts First Family Movie Night
James H. Johnson
night, September 13, the Gleason Downtown Revitalization Committee
hosted its first Family Movie Night at Huggins Park. The featured
movie was Facing the Giants, a PG
family-friendly drama about a
high school football coach who, in several years of coaching, has
never had a winning season. Just as he is finding some reason
to believe that the upcoming season might be better, his hopes are
squelched when the best player on his team
transfers to another school.
After losing their first three games of
the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to
have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, the coach has
lost hope in his battle against fear and failure. However, an
unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just
victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, the coach
and members of his team discovers how faith plays out on the field…
This first Family Movie Night
film sponsored by the Downtown Revitalization Committee, got things
off to a good start, despite the unseasonably cool to borderline
cold temperatures during the evening. More than 75 people came
dressed for the occasion to see the movie, socialize with
neighbors, and enjoy some great hamburgers, cold drinks, coffee, hot
chocolate, and popcorn as well as cookies and other snacks that
could be purchased at the concession stand. The one dollar
per-person admission fee automatically entered everyone in drawings
for various prizes.
Plans are for
additional Family Movie Nights to be scheduled during warm weather
months - Watch this website for announcements.
