Movie nights are returning to the Livingston County Democratic Party’s fall schedule on Friday, Oct. 2.
The party will show a lively and entertaining documentary that takes a look at what happens to all the garbage families throw out or recycle week after week. The documentary follows a family that was asked to save every bit of their trash – from baby diapers to plastic water bottles – for three months and then tracks what becomes of it.
This film includes an upclose and personal look at the impact of importing Canadian trash in to Michigan, as well as the effects of coal-mining on families in West Virginia.
The video will be followed with time for discussion and then a dessert bar featuring ice cream and all the trimmings.
The showing, which is open to all, will be at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, at party headquarters, 10321 E. Grand River, Suite 600, Brighton, MI. Donations of $10 per person or $15 per couple will cover the cost of projector rental and refreshments.
In addition, the party asks attendees to consider bringing a toiletry item for a donation drive to help patients at the Veterans Administration hospital in Ann Arbor. We will be collecting items like toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream, and razors throughout the fall to take to the VA hospital as part of our Veterans Day observance.
