UMM Pancake Dinner Cancelled - Movie Still a Go
Friday, Jul. 12
The Pancake Dinner has been cancelled due to low ticket sales. The free movie, however is still a go and will start at 7 p.m.  The movie, “The Greatest Showman,” stars Hugh Jackman and is about the birth of show business. It has a strong positive message and an abundance of music. If you have never seen it you are missing out on a great movie. And it's free! We hope to see you there.
