The Downtown Development Authority has purchased an outdoor movie screen for use around the city. They are now in the process of determining what they should show, where movies should be screened and other details. To help them do that, they are looking for input from our local citizens.

After the holiday weekend, the Downtown Development Authority will seek votes and ideas on their Facebook page. Beginning Monday, July 8, visit their page to participate. The DDA is interested to hear what citizens want to view in order to better shape the series they will show.

More details and information about what to expect will be made available during the week of July 15.
