Summer still has a few weeks left, but for the Martha United Methodist Churchs vacation series of family movies, the season ends this week.
Friday, the church will show its last free weekly film at the outdoor Martha Pavilion on Ardery Hollow Road, just off old U.S. Route 220 in Huston Township.
Video license rules prohibit the advertising of the title, but its fine to summarize the plot and let you guess. This one involves an animated racing car who competes in the first-ever World Grand Prix but becomes ensnared in international espionage.
The movie starts at 8:30 p.m., and afterward, a hot dog and marshmallow roast will mark the end of another summer of Friday night films.
As always, the church reminds viewers to bring their own lawn chairs and, to ward off the evening chill, warm clothing.
Lunch program ending
Also coming to a close is a summer lunch program for children.
The free lunches, another Martha United Methodist Church community outreach, will end today at the Port Matilda Elementary School and continue today through Friday at the Miles Trailer Park on U.S. Route 220 Alternate. At each site, meals are served from noon to 12:30 p.m.
For information about the program, call 238-8562.
Still time for summer reading
The clocks ticking on summer reading lists, but a few remaining open dates for local scholastic libraries could help knock off a title or two before school starts.
Mountaintop, Port Matilda and Wingate elementary school libraries will be open 9-11 a.m. on Aug. 21. Readers can browse the shelves at Howard Elementary School, for the same hours, on Aug. 14, Aug. 21 and Aug. 28.
