Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month With Traditional Pottery

Children can celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by creating their own pinch pots this Thursday at Parker Williams. Pre-Columbian Central and South Americans, as well as other cultures, made pinch pots out of clay before the introduction of the pottery wheel about 4,000 years ago.

The craft session for children ages 5-12 will be at 4 pm Thursday, Oct. 15. Tickets are required and will be available beginning Wednesday.

October Movie Madness

Join us at 4 pm on Thursdays in October for Movie Madness at Parker Williams. You can't beat the price -- all the movies are free.

First, on Oct. 8, you can watch the story of three animal families as they experience life on the planet we share. The critically acclaimed movie is rated G for everyone.

The second and third movies in the month are in honor of Halloween. Both are rated PG. On Oct. 22 we will be screening a tale about a motley crew of monsters that combats aliens to save Earth. Then, on Oct. 29, you can see what happens when the bored King of Halloween Town decides to do Christmas instead.
