Main Street movie night a success

In spite of Mother Nature, Newkirk Main Street’s venture with Arkansas City to present a free movie on the courthouse lawn could be deemed a success. 

Approximately 150 people attended. 

The children had a great time playing lawn games.  TSA sold awesome chili dogs and nachos, Stepp Up had some of the best brownies and homemade cookies at great prices, and Kellie Johnson had her snow cone machine going great guns for a tasty cold treat.  Main Street sold pop and water along with masks that went along with the Sing! movie. 

Many thanks to River Ridge Construction and Eastman National Bank for sponsoring the movie.   Although the movie was cut short because of the pending storm, everyone seemed to have a great time, and it will definitely be done again in the future. 

Many thanks to Main Street’s promotion committee – especially Sammie Webb who worked so hard to make this event become a reality. 

Also, thanks to Kay County for allowing the use of the courthouse lawn. 

The Newkirk Fire Department kept us up to date on the storm that was moving in and those who were working the event managed to beat the storm home before it hit.
