DRAWING ON THE PAST @ Green Lawn Abbey

SPRING CLEANING & YARD DAY @ Green Lawn Abbey
May 20 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

So many people ask how they can help the Abbey – well this is it. The Abbey is cleaned and maintained solely by volunteers.  No, it’s not glamorous.  Yes, you are likely to sweat.  But you’ll never find a greater group of people to do it with or anyone who appreciates it more.

Join us on Saturday, May 20th, and lend a hand as we  dust, sweep and clean out the cob webs.  Then we’ll really have some fun and pick trash out of the yard, pull weeds, edge the driveway and lay some mulch.

Bring your push brooms, whisk brooms rags, edgers, gloves and clippers.  We have dustpans and rakes already.

We’d appreciate your sending an e-mail to greenlawnabbey@aol.com to let us know you are planning on being there so we can plan enough lunch (and excellent cookies).

Join us on the lawn of Green Lawn Abbey for the first of our 2017 outdoor movie series — Double Indemnity!  One of the most highly acclaimed film noir ever made, this 1944 classic stars Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck.  Great, great film!

“No, I never loved your Walter — not you or anybody else.  I’m rotten to the heart.  I used you, just as you said.  That’s all you ever meant to me.  Until a minute ago when I couldn’t fire that second shot.”  No one could have said it better than Stanwyck as one truly wicked babe.

NEW AND IMPROVED SOUND SYSTEM should make your viewing more enjoyable. Cartoons at dusk, movie starts at dark (probably 9:15-9:30 pm).

Skyward Grille’s food cart featuring their fabulous Philly cheesesteaks, brats, hot dogs, lamb and chicken gyros, beverages and so much more will be serving an hour before the movie starts!  Come early to picnic and enjoy a fun and relaxing evening under the stars.
