Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks – August 14-18

After a week on vacation, we are glad to be home and enjoy this week’s events – plus catch up with work after being gone. 

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - August 14-18, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

The weather this week doesn’t look that great – lots of rain in the forecast. While we could certainly use the rain, it can put a damper on summer fun. (Of course since I took a screenshot of the local weather forecast on Sunday afternoon, it will probably end up being clear all week).

August 13-17 weather forecast

Fortunately, the library continues their summer fun this week. Quality 16 wrapped up their summer movie series last week, but Emagine’s runs through this week and Cinemark’s goes through next week.
