Monday Night Movies

Monday Night Movies at the Warren Public Library will continue on October 2. This event is free of charge and begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Jefferson Room in the basement of the library. Complimentary popcorn will be available. This week’s PG rated 112-minute film will be of particular interest to all fans of the game of golf as the film is a biopic of legendary golf champion “Young” Tommy Morris, who won the British Open as a teen in 1868 despite his father’s fervent belief that their family was too lower-class to play the sport at a professional level. The movie stars Peter Mullan, Jack Lowden, Ophelia Lovibond, Sam Neill, and Peter Ferdinando. Call the library at 723-4650 for the exact title of this and other movies in this series as the library’s movie license does not permit listing the titles of movies outside the library.

Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease

We must Walk. Over 115 people will be participating on 24 teams and walking locally at Betts Park, Saturday, Sept. 30, to benefit the Greater PA Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. Funds raised will be used for research, education, and awareness of this horrible, relentless disease. And this includes free programs presented here in the Warren area. We walk with hope that a cure will be found, with hope for those that will be diagnosed in the coming years, and for those that follow to know a world without Alzheimer’s. We advocate for all those that cannot speak for themselves. We walk for the spouses, partners, family members, and all loved ones that have Alzheimer’s, and we walk to honor or remember those we have lost to the disease.

But we also walk for the caregivers that give so much of themselves. Caregivers often feel like there is no escape when caring for someone at home. Everyone has a reason to walk. There is still plenty of time to register as a team or an individual. Come join us on Sept. 30 at 9 a.m. for registration, 9:30 for the Promise Garden Ceremony, and 10 a.m. for stepping off to Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease.

There will be a DJ, light refreshments, door prizes, speakers, face painting, awards, and lots of fun.

For more information or to register before Walk day, call 814-456-9200 (x5103) or 726-1199.
