Family movie night at Henleyfield

Published 7:00 am Wednesday, June 20, 2018

On Thursday, Henleyfield Community Center will be hosting its first-ever Family Movie Night.

Henleyfield COMmunity Inc. Treasurer Loren Fortenberry said movie to be featured will be “The Sandlot” and it will be shown under the community center’s pavilion. She said they wanted to show the movie as a throwback to when the area used to be a baseball park. She said the location of the pavilion used to be a tee-ball field and there were a lot of baseball and softball fields in the area before the community center was built.

Fortenberry said members of the community center wanted to try showing a movie to see how it goes.
