Communities First, Inc.’s Movies Under the Stars Will Feature Flint’s Longest Soul Train Line!
Flint, MI – Communities First, Inc. will host the final Movies Under the Stars event of the year on September 11th. In honor of this special day in United States history, they will honor a few of our heroes. Police officers, firefighters and state troopers will participate in the community event.
“September 11th is a day of remembrance and respect for those that lost their lives and the first responders that were there. Our event will pay homage to them as well as our local heroes who do so much to make our community safe. We will have a moment of silence and invite the public to write cards to the troops at the event. Our local heroes will have a chance to show off their fun side during the dance party and we are certainly looking forward to it,” said Glenn Wilson, President/CEO of Communities First, Inc.
Each Movies Under the Stars event features a community dance party, but this one will be a little different. Communities First, Inc. is planning Flint’s Longest Soul Train line! Leading up to the event, the organization will release videos via their Facebook page of Flint Police Department, Flint Fire Department and Southwest Airlines practicing their dance moves.
In addition to the Soul Train line, there will be a petting zoo, a fire truck, a police car, science demonstrations, games, and kites. As always, free popcorn and snacks will be provided for guests as they view the movie “Pursuit of Happyness” on the back lawn of Flint City Hall. Attendees should be sure to bring their lawn chairs, jackets and blankets to enjoy the movie. The party starts at 7:30pm and the movie will be shown on a 30 foot movie screen beginning at dusk.
