Movie Under the Stars to raise funds for play structure

A Movie Under the Stars will take place on Friday, August 24, 2018 at 8:30 p.m. at the L’Orignal Park/Beach. Admission for kids is free, while adults will pay $5.

Champlain Parks and Recreation Director Lisa Burroughs says the event is a first — a partnership between Champlain Parks and Recreation and the L’Orignal Volunteer Firefighters. All proceeds will go towards the purchase of a new play structure at the L’Orignal Park. A small play structure and swing saucer, plus surfacing and landscape is estimated at $25,000. Burroughs says she hopes the entire cost will come from fundraising efforts.

The movie starts at 8:30 p.m. Bring your folding chair, blankets and bug spray. Washrooms are available on-site.

Popcorn, drinks and other treats will be available for purchase before and during the show with proceeds going toward the new play structure in the park. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. Dogs are permitted on leashes, but you are encouraged to use your discretion when thinking about bringing your dog with you.

In the event of rain, the movie will be cancelled. Cancellation information will be posted between 4 and 5 p.m. on the Champlain Recreation Facebook page on that day.
