Green film fest july 31 2013 pic1We raised $164, and collected 65 pounds of food collected to be divided jointly between ASPAN and AFAC. Leftover cookies went to AFAC. Thank you to AFAC and ASPAN staff and supporters for attending.

The film shown was the documentary A Place at the Table, a film produced and narrated by Jeff Bridges, that deals with today’s hunger in America and what can be done to eliminate hunger among the 50 million people. http://www.magpictures.com/aplaceatthetable/

We had approximately 24-26 people in attendance. Some gave ideas of how to reach others for our next event. One participant expressed and interest in coming to our next Arlington Greens meeting!

For our first Green Fest film shown in Arlington, we had a nice turn out concerning late July is a time when many people are on vacation or uninterested in community events of any sort. People got to talk about an important issue and get to know some nice Greens.

Sandra Hernandez organized our first film showing for Arlington Greens. We would like to than First Presbyterian Church of Arlington for providing space and publicity for the film.

We want to give a shout out to our dear friend Malissa who pulled all the bits and pieces of our ideas together. She was very organized and calm and thought of many things we failed to consider.
