On Saturday, August 27, Bonnington Regional Park and Mount Sentinel School Quest for Community Social Justice Academy will be hosting a free outdoor movie event and fundraising concession.

Bonnington Regional Park is located on Brown Road, in Bonnington, a 15 minute drive from downtown Nelson. The concession and games will open at 6:30 p.m. The movie will start at approximately 8:45.

Quest for Community is a program at Mount Sentinel where students learn about community while providing service both locally and abroad. This year students are raising funds to begin building a school in Oaxaca, Mexico.  Students will be travelling there again this year to assist in the construction of this school.

“Quest for Community provides such a rich learning experience for these students, and we are delighted to be able to host this fundraiser to assist us in achieving our goals,” says Quest Academy teacher Ruby Payne.

Check out all that they do on their website at questforcommunity.com.

“We are prevented by our licensing agreement from advertising the title of the movie, however the Quest students have organized a concession, and in keeping with the subject of the movie, they will be selling ‘Captain Kirk’ Hot Dogs, ‘Mr. Spock’ Veggie dogs, ‘warp speed’ veggies and dip, hot and cold drinks, candy and of course, ‘the Final Frontier Popcorn,’” says Susan Lakeman, Bonnington Park organizer for the event. “We hope this event will ‘go where no one has gone before…’”

These enthusiastic students are also planning some fun kids games, face painting, and a fish pond. A climbing wall from Bear Rock Climbing will also be at the event.

Fresh Air Cinema will bring their giant inflatable movie screen in the park for this fun family event. This movie will be viewed on the grass field, so please make sure to bring blankets and/or chairs to view the movie.
