A Hillmond teacher is organizing one last get-together for students as classes wrap-up for the summer.
Katie Clark is hosting a drive-in theatre at the Hillmond Redden Arena to bring families together within the community.
“I wanted to do something the kids could look forward to and be in a safe place.”
“With no sports, playdates and all those things, I’ve noticed a difference with the kids. The first week was okay because I’ve been in touch with the kids every week but as the weeks progressed they haven’t been looking forward to things,” she adds.
Clark says she’s noticed the children’s mood and energy has improved as the weather cleared.
Not only will the drive-in be for families but all proceeds from the event will be going towards the Britannia Fire Department. Clark chose the fire department after receiving funding from the RM of Britannia.
“They do so much in our community. They come out to the school every year. The kids look forward to it and it’s one of their favourite days of the year.”
Clark says they will be following the Saskatchewan public health guidelines for drive-ins with vehicles placed five metres apart. She will also have a list of the attendees to ensure they are following the gathering limits.
Two movies will be showing at the drive-in, Onward is scheduled for 6 p.m. and Dolittle is scheduled for 8 p.m.
There is a minimum donation of $20 per vehicle through e-transfer and Clark says tickets for Onward are still available and tickets for Dolittle are almost sold out. Anyone interested in attending, can contact [email protected] to purchase tickets.
