Movie in the Park “Despicable Me 2”

Look at the Crowd!! Everyone gathered to watch "Despicable Me 2"  in Wilkowski Park on June 27.  The crowd was dressed in summer clothing, because it was still sweltering outside.  It was unusually quiet for a movie in the park.  People were relaxing and hoping that it would cool down.

RCC to give out Beach Balls at “Movie in the Park”

We huffed and puffed & blew up hundreds of beach balls for the audience at the Yelm Prairie Day's Parade. Sh..... the mini-compressor helped us blow up most of the beach balls.   Even though the inside of the truck bed and cab were filled with beach balls & the Ford Mustang was loaded with beach balls... we ran out of them at about Clark Street.  We're sorry, did not have enough inflatable beach balls on hand for everyone who attended the Yelm Prairie Days Parade. Come and get your Rainier Community Cares Beach Ball If you still want a mini beach ball come join us at the "Movie in the Park" on Saturday Night.  We are showing "Despicable Me 2" and there will be popcorn and otter pops.
