CULVER â Changes and additional details have been released about two films slated for the Lake Maxinkuckee Film Festival, which takes place at the Uptown Cinema on Lake Shore Drive (Friday evening and Saturday all day) and the Town Park (Saturday evening) Sept. 3 and 4.
Due to damage to the film print, the childrenâs movie Saturday morning will be the 1995 film âBabe,â rather than âMilo and Otisâ as previously announced. âBabeâ is rated PG and runs 89 minutes, and is the story of a piglet who befriends and learns about all the other creatures on the farm.
PLYMOUTH â Due to the Labor Day holiday the trash pickup schedule for Plymouth residents will be altered by one day next week. Allied Waste is closed Monday, Sept. 6 so picking up trash and recycling will begin Wednesday Sept. 8.
Customers are asked to remember that trash and recycling are to be placed at the curb for pickup at 6 a.m. The trash lid must be closed. Any items overflowing the tote may fall off and will cause the tote to be left not emptied. Any items placed outside the regular tote will also not be picked up without a pickup appointment being made with the trash hauler.
PLYMOUTH â Two local organizations for kids will be getting a lot of âenergyâ from others this Blueberry Festival weekend.
The Adams Street Kids â a local youth ministry of several area churches â will once again make all their operating funds from the annual Blueberry Stomp. A good idea to help runners with their âenergyâ will help the Plymouth Sharks Swim Club make some funds for their season.
The Swim Club will host a spaghetti dinner for all runners in the Stomp to âcarb upâ on Sunday night before the traditional Monday run that ends at the parade.
PLYMOUTH â Francis Ellert, plant manager for Coca-Cola Bottling in Plymouth, recently presented a check to Julie Stauffer, executive director of Adams Street Ministries. The donation will assist the youth groups from several churches in hosting the 37th annual Blueberry Stomp.
The Stomp will take place Monday morning prior to the Labor Day Parade.
