Woolery Mill
http://www.monroehumane.org/run-for-the-animals

The Run for the Animals is a timed 5K race, and the day ends with a Family Fun Parade along the Woolery Mill grounds, with all of the proceeds benefiting the programs and services of MCHA.

Barktoberfest, happening both during and after the race events, includes vendors, an off-leash dog play area, and tons of other fun activities for both families and furry friends!

In 2015, we welcomed over 300 runners and walkers and 100 furry friends to the event!

Don’t miss one of the greatest opportunities to support local animal welfare in our community.

James Dorr’s THE TEARS OF ISIS was a 2014 Bram Stoker Award®
James Dorr’s THE TEARS OF ISIS was a 2014 Bram Stoker Award® nominee for Superior Achievement in a Fiction Collection. Other books include STRANGE MISTRESSES: TALES OF WONDER AND ROMANCE, DARKER LOVES: TALES OF MYSTERY AND REGRET, and his all-poetry VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE). An Active Member of the Horror Writers Association and Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America with more than 500 individual appearances from ALFRED HITCHCOCK’S MYSTERY MAGAZINE to YELLOW BAT REVIEW, for the latest information Dorr invites readers to visit his blog at http://jamesdorrwriter. wordpress.com.

The story he has selected is currently unpublished, and will be a chapter in his new book, TOMBS: A CHRONICLE OF LATTER-DAY TIMES OF EARTH, a novel-in-stories due for release from Elder Signs Press in spring-summer 2017.

Margaret Fisher Squires grew up in or near the capital cities of the United States, India, and Turkey. The third time she and her husband moved to Bloomington, Indiana, they put down roots, and raised their daughter here. She learned how to stop writing like an academic while turning out a column on marriage for an area bridal magazine. Bloomington has generously supported Margaret’s writing through the Hart Rock Poetry Series, the Poets Weave on WFIU, Upstart Poets, the Writers Guild, and of course Five Women Poets. She is proud to be one of the co-authors of the Five Women Poets’ chapbook, Birds of a Feather. She is a psychotherapist, and for fun listens to live music and incites people to dance whenever possible.

Andy Hubbard was raised in a Maine village so remote it could not even boast a stop sign, although it did have several fugitives and Maine’s only authenticated cattle rustler.

By some mistake that has never been satisfactorily explained, he was admitted to Dartmouth College, where he majored in girls and beer. As punishment he was awarded a BA in English.

Later, he added an MA in Creative Writing to his wall art, and became unemployed, a profession which he followed with sporadic breaks for the next 35 years.

In 2014 he became completely insolvent by devoting himself to writing poetry.

He accepts donations.

American Graffiti

06:00 pm to 07:50 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
http://www.buskirkchumley.org

Where were you in 62’? Dial back to the end of summer in 1962 when drag racing, drive-ins and cruisin’ the strip were the rage. This coming-of-age tale follows four teenagers on their last night in a small California town before college. Through a series of vignettes, each character wrestles with impending adulthood and loss of innocence. A rocking soundtrack and star-studded cast earned the film five Oscar nominations.

Love the cars featured in the film? The Monroe County History Center will be hosting a classic car show and competition noon to 4pm on the same day. The show is free to spectators and can be accessed off Lincoln Street across from the Monroe County Public Library. Winners will be announced at 3:30pm and winners will be invited to park their cars in front of the Buskirk-Chumley during our screening, creating some boss photo ops.

As with all BCT movie screenings, costumes are encouraged! Doors will open at 5:30pm.

Tickets may be purchased by phone or in person at the BCT Box Office or online at bctboxoffice.com
