The Atascosa Family Crisis Center is busy organizing free events for the community this summer.
On Friday, June 30 the center, along with the Pleasanton Police Department, invite everyone to Movie Night at the Atascosa River Park in Pleasanton. At approximately 8:30 p.m. (sunset) families can enjoy a free screening of The Sandlot at the baseball fields. Informational booths will be set up at the large pavilion. Free popcorn and drinks will be given. Free cotton candy to the first 100 guests.
Everyone is asked to please bring their blankets and lawn chairs for a night under the stars. No alcohol will be allowed, as this is a family event.
Then on Friday, July 28, at the same time and place, families can watch a free screening of the animated film Toy Story.
Another event underway is the Anti-Bullying Rally on Friday, August 4, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Atascosa River Park in Pleasanton. The center also invites community members to join them in spreading awareness against bullying by posting a picture that says, I will be a HERO.
Donations such as jars of pickles, sodas, water and ice are needed for the events. Those interested in donating items may contact Shawnene at 830-281-2001, Monday-Friday, or you may email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
