School’s Out for Summer Quote-Along Movie: AUDIENCE CHOICE!
Saturday, June 10, 2 p.m.
The Old Firehouse, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd.

What’s your school personality? Are you more of a summer vacation romance type of person (“Dirty Dancing”)? Maybe you’re a carpe diem type who skips school to have a wild adventure (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”). Or perhaps you’re focused on your future and can be seen selling lanyards door-to-door to pay for college (“Napoleon Dynamite”).

To celebrate the close of the school year, we’re letting you vote on which quote-along movie will kick off summer. Head over to www.surveymonkey.com/r/SummerQuoteAlong to cast your vote by May 19! The Alden staff will then design an awesome quote-along experience for the winning movie.

Rescheduled*
Join The Alden and master artist Kofi Dennis at the Old Firehouse for an introductory to djembe drumming skills and improvisation. Included in this class is a chance to put your new skills to the test playing as a group in a community drum circle. This class is designed for children age eight and older and we recommended that families participate together.
