The Town of Concrete will host four (4) FREE Community Picnic and Movie Nights this summer at Veteran's Memorial Park at 7 p.m. Bring your own food and/or outdoor game, enjoy some community socialization and stay till dark for the movie!! We will also be including fundraisers to go along with each movie event. If you are unable to attend a certain event and would still like to contribute to the fundraiser, a "donation station" is set up at Town Hall.
July 12 - Little League Baseball Fundraiser (cash donations or slightly used equipment welcome) - Trouble with the Curve - Starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake PG-13
Gus Lobel has been one of the best scouts in baseball for decades, but, despite his efforts to hide it, age is starting to catch up with him. The one person who might be able to help is also the one person Gus would never ask: his daughter, Mickey an associate at a high-powered Atlanta law firm whose drive and ambition has put her on the fast track to becoming partner. Against her better judgment, and over Gus's objections, Mickey joins him on his latest scouting trip to North Carolina, jeopardizing her own career to save his. Forced to spend time together for the first time in years, each makes new discoveries--revealing long-held truths about their past and present that could change their future.
July 26 - Concrete Food Bank Fundraiser (non-perishible food or cash donations welcome) - Hunger Games - Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcheson, Liam Hemsworth PG-13
In a not-too-distant future, North America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine and war to be replaced by Panem, a Country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcast throughout Panem. The 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year old Katniss' you sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives.
August 9 - Wounded Warriors In Action Fundraiser (cash donations welcome) - The Cowboys, 1972 - Starring John Wayne, Roscoe Lee Browne and Bruce Dern, Rated G
Hollywood legend John Wayne stars as rancher Will Anderson in one of the few great Westerns made in the '70s. Pressed for time and desperate for help, Anderson must turn an assembly of young students into cowboys. The unseasoned cowhands overcome inexperience and a throng of miscreants who attempt to steal the cattle.
August 23 - Gradeschool & Highschool Bands Fundraiser (instruments in good condition, reeds, slide oil, cleaning supplies, drum sticks or other equipment or cash donations welcome) - Grease, 1978 Starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John PG
John Travolta solidified his position as the most versatile and magnetic screen presence of the decade in GREASE, one of the most successful motion pictures of all time. Recording star Olivia Newton-John made her American film debut as Sandy, Travolta's painfully naive love interest. GREASE was not just a universal appeal, this re-release is an energetic and exciting homage to the age of rock 'n roll!
