Movie, Music Coming To Whitehouse City Park
By KELLY GOOCH
Whitehouse residents have a chance to enjoy the City Park this summer with a movie and music.
The next movie in the park is set for about 9 p.m. Saturday in the City Park on East Main Street. The movie "Courageous" will be shown, and concessions will be open.
Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on.
Maria Davenport, a board member with the Whitehouse Parks and Recreation Commission, said this is the second year for the program, which is put on through the commission. The monthly event has drawn up to 75 people.
"We hope to continue the program and get more involvement in it," Ms. Davenport said. The commission wanted "just to be able to use the parks, and since we have a good place there, we decided to do (movie in the park)."
Commission Chairman Don Branam echoed Ms. Davenport, saying last year, "As long as the people respond to it and they like it, we definitely want to do it for the community. We just welcome them all (and encourage families to) come and have a good time."
One week after movie in the park, a new music in the park event is scheduled.
The event, slated for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. July 21, will feature accomplished guitarist Terry Fancher, who plays several types of guitars.
Branam said Fancher also gives guitar lessons and in the past had some of his students on stage with him.
"He plays different kinds of music. He'll give you a medley of all kinds of music from soft rock to gospel," he said.
