From Mark Clement:
Movie, Food Truck, E-waste drive, Free Watermelon, King of Pops and Captain Planet.
What do these things have in common? August 11 these things will kick off the Candler Park Fall Movie series. Our feature presentation will be the movie Wall-E. This Disney film features the greatest recycler of cinema history. To that end we are doing a recycling drive ourselves. Electronic Recycling Services will be on hand from 6 to 8 pm to take off your hands and recycle or responsibly dispose of your unwanted electronic items.
To further explain what will be accepted please see the supporting article in this edition of the messenger or visit their web site at www.ers-international.com . Each e-waste disposal will get you a raffle ticket to win restaurant certificates and possibly a rain barrel.
Also from 6 to 8ish one of the most popular food trucks MIX’d Up will be on hand serving up tasty snacks. We will be serving up free watermelon from 7 pm on, while supplies last. In addition, Captain Planet will be on hand for an eco-photo opp.
So August 11 come down to Candler Park in front of the pool house with you unwanted Electronic waste, win some cool stuff, have dinner, get your picture taken with Captain Planet and see a great movie with your neighbors. This is all in addition to the usual music kids dancing hula hooping mania that typically starts off movie night in Candler Park.
Candler Park Movie Night festivities start at 6:00 and the feature presentation Wall-E will go on around 8:00 (sunset) in front of the pool house. You will want to get there early for the best spot!
Once again, well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome. Bring your own coolers but be aware that GLASS containers or bottles are strictly forbidden in city parks.
