Grab your lawn chairs and join the Southport Parks Department for Movie in the Park, featuring Mary Poppins on Sept. 10, beginning at dusk (8 p.m.) in Southport Park, 6901 Derbyshire Rd. This movie is open to the public and free. Snacks will be provided.
There will also be a chili cook-off to accompany the movie. The funds raised from the chili cookoff will be used to help fund an Eagle Scout project. Jeff Sutt intends to build a veterans memorial at the park, using the existing flag pole, adding five more flag poles to represent each branch of the service.
