Friday Night Flicks

This Friday, July 19 the Friday Night Flicks presented by Fairfield Federal continues with a showing of Brave.

The film follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus and Queen Elinor.

Merida's actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to a witch for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish.

The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources -- including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers -- to undo a beastly curse before it's too late, discovering the meaning of true bravery.

Madagascar 3 was originally scheduled, but the films were rescheduled.

Concert series

The 2013 Summer Concert Series continues this Sunday, July 21, in the Sycamore Park Amphitheater.

Simba Jordan will take the stage at 7 p.m.

Jordan is a highly charismatic and gifted vocalist inspired by Motown, breakthrough R&B crossover artists like Prince, and early hip-hop stars like LL Cool J. But the music he loves the most is the music he brings to the stage: country and southern rock.

Jordan's unique style, drive and passion led him to succeed in Nashville and today he entertains audiences throughout the Midwest.
