MOVIES IN THE CEMETARY
Friends of the Cemetery in partnership with The Trylon Microcinema will show an alien related series of four films to benefit the restoration of the historic fence surrounding Pioneers and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery from late August to early October. The 2015 Fall Film Series includes: Santo and Blue Demon Against the Monsters, The Haunting, Poltergeist, and Haxan: Witchcraft Through The Ages.  
The films were chosen by the Friends of the Cemetery to provide family fun in the spirit of Halloween and other autumn celebrations with a dose of nostalgia reminiscent of drive-in movies. The organization hopes with special events like these to make the cemetery space one that can be enjoyed by and welcoming to all.
15 FOR ALL 50
Join 15 Now as presidential candidates Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O'Malley speak together for the first time, addressing the DNC in Minneapolis. Join us to demand the candidates support a racial and economic justice agenda and a $15/hour minimum wage! 
Increasing the minimum wage would directly impact millions of workers across the country. The majority of low-wage workers are women and people of color. To win, we need to build a movement across the US for racial and economic justice, demanding $15/hour for all workers.
