Movie Night in Ramsey Park is happening again Saturday November 8th! Movie Night is paying tribute to the late Robin Williams in a perfect role for him, as a grown up Peter Pan looking to recover his lost Peter Pan-ness! Dustin Hoffman makes a dastardly Captain Hook!
Come join in! Bounce houses will be going at 5:00 p.m. and the movie will start a little after 6:00. Gusto Italian Kitchen will be there with some yummy fare and Midtown Church will be giving away popcorn.
The RNA would like to thank Allison Allen for organizing, and thanks to the businesses/organizations above and to all of the sponsors for helping make this movie night possible: The Draught House Pub, Pathway to Fitness Personal Training, Mike Robertson – Vista Lending, and Allison Allen – Realty Austin.
Join your neighbors as we gather to celebrate our successful efforts to renovate Ramsey Park and hopefully close the remaining fundraising gap!
