On Tuesday, November 27 at 12:00 pm, the Mattapoisett Friends of the Elderly will host a free showing of “A Christmas Story” at the Council on Aging. Pizza is available for $3. Pizza requests must be paid by 3:00 pm on Monday, November 26.
“A Christmas Story” is about Ralphie Parker, a young boy living in 1940s Indiana. He desperately yearns for a Red Rider BB gun for Christmas. His mother admonishes him, “You’ll shoot your eye out.” Ralphie persists by asking, unsuccessfully, for help from both his teacher and Santa Claus. All the while, Ralphie finds himself trying to stay out of a feud between his mother and father regarding a sexy lamp. This is in addition to having to deal with the constant taunts of a pair of bullies.
RSVP the Mattapoisett Council on Aging at Center School or call 508-758-4110, even if you’re not having pizza, so we know how many seats to set up.
