Events for March 23

Today at 1:00pm we will watch “The Last of the Belles” at the Senior Citizens Center. We were supposed to watch it on March 9, but everyone wanted to see the Alan Ladd 1949 version of “The Great Gatsby” instead.  Free books and refreshments provided.

Then, from 5:00pm-6:00pm we will serve Chicken Caesar Salad in the multi-purpose room and at 6:00pm view the 2013 version of "The Great Gatsby,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio followed by a group discussion.  This Book-to-Movie Event is sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
