Looking back on the 2015 event at Heritage Park, it was a great success being the 1st annual ever outdoor movie night in Peachland. The day before was hot and sunny, the day of the movie a mixed day of clouds and wind, the next day hot and sunny. Even with the cooler climate and light winds and the possible sign of rain, some 250 people from the community and visitors took to Heritage Park to see Paddington. I have to say, the production crew and myself were a bit nervous around 4pm when the screen was being blown up and we were hoping for the best. Our prayers were answered around 7pm when the winds died, and it was quite pleasant at the start of the movie. As i was enjoying the movie Paddington, I could see the clouds going away making room for dark clear skies, and at the end of the movie it was a bit chilly, but we made it. It was a good plan to have a blanket nearby. It turned out to be a very good event for the whole family.
Everyone really liked the movie Paddington, even the adults were surprized how much they enjoyed it. We had dodged the rain, and cold, and made a difference for the Peachland Boys & Girls Club. We raised almost $1900 for a 3 hour event, which was great for the Boys & Girls Club. I was happy many sponsors and individuals stepped up and really helped the event be a success. Marty Edwards provided excellent pre movie music, Doris was busy selling marmalade sandwiches, the members of the Boys and Girls club were selling drinks, popcorn and candy, the Rotary Club selling some great food, Out sponsors of the event were much needed for the event, and we say Thank You and we will see you in 2016.
