Reclaim your Childhood with Christopher Robin

Christopher Robin has grown into a care-worn workaday adult when Pooh reappears from his sun-dappled childhood to help him rediscover the simple joys of life in this charming live-action film starring Ewan McGregor and, of course, Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the whole Hundred Acre Woods gang. Come see “Christopher Robin” at Movie Monday on March 11 at 1 pm at the Community Center-Room 303. Seniors enjoy free movies and popcorn. Doors open at 12:45 pm. No registration required.

Maple Syrup Days
