Swim a Lap Day
When : June 24th
Swim a Lap Day is good for your health. And, it’s a fun day, too!
It’s time to enjoy all that summer has to offer, including plenty of time in and around the pool. What better way to enjoy the early days of summer, than by taking a lap or two (or three) around the pool. In addition to the fun, it’s great exercise to help keep you fit!

Well the summer is coming to a close but there is still a full month of July, so come on let’s get out there, let’s get warm!
The movie of the week: Jersey Boys. I personally saw this movie and at first I thought to myself, “I can’t watch this movie. I can’t watch a man sing a song, he gets all emotional, his hips swiveling, and he’s swaying it kind of makes me feel embarrassed for them!”
Well that’s not the case, this is a great movie. A classic rock and roll story. “It’s the rise a fall of Frankey Valley And The Four Seasons.”
Catch this Rock and Roll classic at the River Cinema.
And know another bit of *Wow, I did not know that!*

Good day UND! Looking like a sunny day with a high of 72 and a low of 51. The Forth of July weekend coming up, I hope you all have some big plains:)
“THIS IS IT TRUE BELEAVERS” – Today is World UFO Day! World UFO Day seeks to get governments to fess up to the existence of UFOs. Many people believe that UFOs from outer space have already visited us, and a big, government cover-up is hiding the facts from the public.
The date for this special day was chosen because it is the date of the Roswell Incident, a historical event leading to wide speculation and belief that aliens have indeed visited us.
The Roswell Incident:
July 2, 1947 is a date well-known to UFO believers (Isn’t everyone!?). On this date, Mac Brazel, a rancher in northwest of Roswell, New Mexico discovered wreckage of a metallic object on his ranch. The wreckage and the metal it was made of was strange. He contacted military authorities who investigated the site, and removed the wreckage. The first military reports referenced a mysterious, Unidentified Flying Object. These reports were later rescinded, leading to wide speculation and claims of a massive government cover-up of the discovery of UFOs from outer space. It also sparked fear of a UFO invasion and rumors of other incidents. That speculation is alive and well today.
The movie of the week ….this movie so fits this day….
“Earth to Echo” – In this fun story two boys discover an alien trapped on earth, four friends come together to protect and help him find his way home. Catch this fun animated movie at the River Cinema.
Have a great weekend everyone, and remember, “We all shine on like the moon… and the stars… and the sun.”
