The event was produced by the Mare Island Community Association, spearheaded by residents Paul Cotten and Kent Fortner. It was a real group effort with Susan Nichols recruiting local caterer Fred with his hot food offerings, Lizbeth See and her two daughters selling popcorn along with the efforts by Joe Rodrigues and his team at Universal Security to help with power, lighting and other public safety issues.
So if you missed the first show, don’t worry. The next scheduled film is Grease on Saturday Sept 15th. Here is a RSVP link and a copy of the event info:
