Thank you for the coverage - just one correction The Community Open Forum is free.
However, the screening of the film Bully is not free. Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for 18 and under. We hope many come out to support Both events Thursday at Glassford Hill Middle School, and the film screening on Friday night at The Elks.
