Family Movie Night – Finding Dory

Bring a blanket or a chair and join us for a free, fun, family evening and a chance to gather with neighbors! Movie night is Saturday, January 28, 2017, starting at 6:30pm.

Movie shows at the Wendell Community Center, 601 W Third Street, Wendell NC.

Princesses in the Park 2017

“Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” was heard as the good fairy cast a spell for an afternoon of magic and delight across Wendell!  As your princess disembarks from her royal carriage at Wendell Community Center wearing her best princess outfit, she will begin her magical afternoon with greetings from a royal Princess who will sing, read and share training on how to be a princess.

After the training, the enchantingly good time continues with watching the movie, Princess and the Frog.  Just like all good spells, this one ends when your princess boards her royal carriage for home.

This event is being held on  Saturday, February 25, 2017, starting at 4:15pm (NEW TIME).

Admission is free. Join the fun at Wendell Community Center, 601 W Third Street, Wendell NC.
