Summer movies will help build stronger family units in Lansing Township

With summer just around the corner, Lansing Charter Township is wasting no time in planning activities to bring residents and the community together. Leading the main event, which is a series of summer movies being shown in two parks is Lansing Township Supervisor Dion’trae Hayes. “So two movies shown for two different Fridays, and they are consecutive Fridays,” Hayes said. “The idea is to make it a family, friendly and affordable event for all the residents in our community.”

According to Hayes, she has secured donations for a concession stand that will consist of water, popcorn and other amenities. In order to make the movie affordable, all residents will need to do is show up with a blanket or chair, there is no admission fee.
