Trinity to host family movie night

REED CITY -- Trinity Lutheran Church and School will host its fourth annual family movie night from 6 to 9 p.m., Friday, Dec. 6.

The free event will include a double feature of The Grinch, the original cartoon movie beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by the 2018 feature length animated movie.

The event also will include a Whoville photo booth and Grinch make-and-take crafts. There will be a drawing for gift prizes including Grinch-themed baskets, a gas gift card valued at $100 and tickets to the We Care For Kids auction.

Everyone is encouraged to dress up as a Who from Whoville, the Grinch, or Max, or simply come in pajamas for a cozy night at the movies.
