Friday Night Flicks Presents: Safe House

Safe House movie posterFriday, June 29th at 6:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Tobin Frost, one of the CIA's most dangerous traitors, resurfaces in South Africa after eluding capture for almost a decade. During his interrogation, the safe house he's being held in is attacked by brutal mercenaries, forcing rookie agent Matt Weston to take the infamous Frost on the run. As the masterful manipulator toys with his reluctant protege, shaking the young operative's morality and idealism, the unlikely allies must fight to stay alive long enough to uncover who wants them dead. Rated R.

Altered Books

Wednesday, June 27th, 2:00-4:00 p.m. in the Collins Room

We had so much fun at our last altered books workshop- we are doing it again! Transform old books into your own personal story by painting, stamping, decoupage, tearing, cutting, and gluing! All materials will be provided though you may want to bring photos or mementos from home to personalize your piece. These recycled books are a great way to explore your creativity and create a lasting work of art. They make great gifts and scrapbooks! Join other teens in a relaxed, fun environment. See some examples from the May workshop on the Teen Blog. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Tree Identification Hike

Saturday, June 16th at 1:30 p.m.

Conservation Commissioner and DEEP Park Maintainer Carl Arsenault will take us on a tour of the trees of Marcus Cooke Park on Old Rock Hill Road. We encourage everyone to get out and learn a little more about the trees that surround us and how they help the planet. Wallingford is host to many different types of trees – let’s get out and explore!

As with all our outdoor events, kids must be accompanied by an adult.
