“We decided the children shouldn’t be the only ones to have a ‘beach day’  explained Program Coordinator Jackie Carlino.  We added a fun component for adults on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 10 a.m., by offering a screening of the movie Beach Blanket Bingo starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello.” This movie is unrated and has a running time of 98 minutes, is free and open to the public.
