“Usually, during Co-op and Small Business Weeks, we organize some kind of community event, such as a game show, a casino or a bingo,” says Diane McInnis from Évangéline-Central Credit Union, on behalf of the local organizing committee. “This year, we’ve chosen something a little different that will hopefully attract children, teenagers and adults.”
“We hope that Mother Nature will co-operate to offer us a beautiful, quiet evening, without rain, to watch this wonderful film, » she concludes. “My family and I are bringing our blankets to wrap up in, just in case the weather gets a little chilly. Whatever happens, we’re going to have a great time. Everyone is invited to join us.”
