'Movies in the Park' returns Saturday


Last weekend’s “Movies in the Park,” the second in a four-week series, brought out a huge crowd again, but there’s more to come this Saturday, organizers have announced.

The Community Foundation’s Emerging Leaders Council is the host of these four events, with the remaining two being Saturday, June 16, and Saturday, June 23.

The coming Saturday attraction will feature a Christmas in June theme as the popular film, “Home Alone,” will take the giant outdoor screen.

In keeping with the Christmas theme, organizers have planned an “Ugly T-shirt/Sweater” contest, and anyone and everyone are welcome to compete.

This week, the Community Foundation is partnering with the Greenway Public Arts Committee for “Chalk the Walk,” so come and add your artwork to the Greenway track for the chance to win a prize.  

“Movies in the Park” is made possible by the following sponsors: 

 • Presenting Sponsor: Easy Auto;

• Premier Sponsor: Ocoee Oral Surgery, Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union and Mix 104.1;

• Major Sponsor: Advanced Auto, Andrew Johnson Bank, city of Cleveland, Rutledge Pulmonary and State Farm-Eric Evans; and

• Supporting Sponsor: Dobbs’ Landscaping, Element, May & May Dentistry, Montessori, Poppeas, Saylor See Creative Studio, United Community Bank and Wheeler’s.

Organizers urge area residents to “… pack up your chairs, blankets and picnic baskets, and get ready to watch a movie under the stars!”

The movie will get underway at about 8:45 p.m. at Greenway Park on Raider Drive. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent.

 Concessions include water, soft drinks, hot dogs, hamburgers, Kona Ice, popcorn and candy. All will be available for purchase on-site beginning at 7 p.m. 

Through both hands-on charitable service and committee-based grant making, the Emerging Leaders Council provides a training ground for the future leaders of Cleveland and Bradley County's philanthropic and outreach efforts.
