Work of Craft Ladies Pays Off!

Two years ago, we made 22 bibs [clothing protectors] for the women at Hawthorne Inn in Winter Haven. Recently, we had 6 yards of printed baseball material given to us. This enabled us to make 13 bibs for the men. Millie, the Community Relations Director, at the Hawthorne Inn, sent us a lovely thank you note on June 13.

Last week we had a very nice, large bag of material donated to us again. Thanks to this donation, 30 more bibs can be made for the women. Since the bibs get used daily and need to be washed often, this is a very much appreciated outreach community project.

July Movies

Thursdays 7 PM

July 3: Flags of Our Fathers      2006/132 min

This isn’t so much a conventional war movie as it is a thought-provoking meditation on our collective need for heroes. In telling the story of the six men (five Marines, one Navy medic) who raised the American flag of victory on the battle-ravaged Japanese island of Iwo Jima on February 23, 1945, Director Clint Eastwood takes us deep into the horror of war (in painstakingly authentic Iwo Jima battle scenes) while emphasizing how three of the surviving flag-raisers became reluctant celebrities – and resentful pawns in a wartime publicity campaign – after their flag-raising was immortalized by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal in the most famous photograph in military history. As the surviving flag-raisers reluctantly play their public roles as “the heroes of Iwo Jima” during an exhausting wartime bond rally tour, this movie evolves into a pointed study of battlefield valor and misplaced idolatry, incorporating subtle comment on the bogus nature of celebrity, the trauma of battle, and the true meaning of heroism in wartime. Wisely avoiding any direct parallels to contemporary history, Eastwood allows us to draw our own conclusions about the Iwo Jima flag-raisers and how their postwar histories (both noble and tragic) simultaneously illustrate the hazards of exploited celebrity and society’s genuine need for admirable role models during times of national crisis. 

July 10: The Monuments Men 2014/118 min

Based on the true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, this movie centers around an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. In a seemingly impossible mission, the Monuments Men, as they were called, find themselves risking their lives in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1,000 years of culture. 

July 17: The Pianist                       2002/150 min

Nominated for 7 Academy Awards, The Pianist, stars Oscar winner Adrien Brody in the true-life story of brilliant pianist and composer Wladyslaw Szpilman, the most acclaimed young musician of his time until his promising career was interrupted by the onset of World War II. This powerful, triumphant film follows Szpilman’s heroic and inspirational journey of survival with the unlikely help of a sympathetic German officer. A truly unforgettable epic, testifying to both the power of hope and the resiliency of the human spirit, The Pianist is a miraculous tale of survival masterfully brought to life by visionary filmmaker Roman Polanski in his most personal movie ever. 

July 24: Letters from Iwo Jima    2006/140 min 

Critically hailed as an instant classic, this is a masterwork of uncommon humanity and a harrowing, unforgettable indictment of the horrors of war. In an unprecedented demonstration of worldly citizenship, Clint Eastwood has crafted a truly Japanese film, with Japanese dialogue (with subtitles) and filmed in a contemplative Japanese style, serving as both complement and counterpoint to Eastwood’s previously released companion film Flags of Our Fathers. Letters reveals the battle of Iwo Jima from the tunnel and cave-dwelling perspective of the Japanese, hopelessly outnumbered, deprived of reinforcements, and doomed to die in inevitable defeat. 

July 31: Saving Mr. Banks             2013/125 min 

Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson bring to life the untold true story about the origins of one of the most treasured Disney classics of all time. John Lee Hancock directs this acclaimed film that reveals the surprising backstory behind the making of Mary Poppins. Determined to fulfill a promise to his daughters, Walt Disney (Hanks) tries for 20 years to obtain the rights to author P. L. Travers’ (Thompson) beloved book. Armed with his iconic creative vision, Walt pulls out all the stops, but the uncompromising Travers won’t budge. Only when he reaches into his own complicated childhood does Walt discover the truth about the ghosts that haunt Travers, and together, they set “Mary Poppins” free.
