All aboard for Wrestling Team’s Movie Night
PINE PLAINS — While the Pine Plains Wrestling Team is usually found refining their techniques in the library’s basement, they moved upstairs to the Community Room above the Pine Plains Free Library to host a Holiday Movie Night for the community on Saturday, Dec. 4.
The doors to the Community Room opened at 4:30 p.m., welcoming local children clad in their coziest pajamas.
Priced at just $5 per person, tickets included popcorn, cookies and a drink. By 5 p.m., the children who showed up to watch the classic holiday story of “The Polar Express” unfold were finally settled in, their eyes glued to the big screen.
The Community Room was filled with excited students, mostly from the Pine Plains Central School District, who sat among their friends and nibbled on their snacks, ready to watch one of their favorite movies of the winter season while supporting those on the town’s wrestling team raise some much-needed funds to compete during the year.
