Summer is winding down, the kids are starting to go back to school, and there’s even a hint of Fall in the air. Many of us here in the Meadows are left with fond memories of the delightful evenings we had sitting under the stars with family and neighbors, watching movies together as part of the “Movie Nights in the Meadows” series.
This year’s season ran from June to mid-August and included seven family-friendly movies ranging from Lego Batman to Casablanca. The Hidden Meadows Community Foundation sponsored the events, which were held on the patio of the Oaks Grill.
We had a total over 360 adults and children attend this year! People brought their chairs, blankets, pillows, popcorn, and picnics. Some came in movie-themed costumes and a few brought glow sticks to share with others. We even had a couple of birthdays celebrated in the crowd!
Feedback from the community has been terrific with comments like: “Great selection of films and a beautiful setting;” “We had a great time;” “Fun and beautiful night;” and “It was so nice to sit under the oak tree and watch Harry Potter!”
The Movie Gift Basket raffle on the last night of the series was also a success. Thank you to everyone who bought tickets! The
funds will be used to help offset costs for the movie licenses. Big congratulations to Hidden Meadows resident Mona who won the basket with 4 Regal Theater movie tickets, candy and popcorn!
Thank you to all of the friendly Hidden Meadows residents who joined us for this wonderful community activity. We are so grateful to the Foundation for its generous sponsorship, to individuals who made donations, and to the Oaks Grill for letting us use their facilities.
I look forward to seeing you next year!
