This Week in Rocky Hill: Free Movies, Town Meetings, History Discussion

If you're looking for something to do in and around Rocky Hill this week, this list should give you some good ideas to start. And don't be shy, please add your own!

1. Get those apple baskets ready, it looks like another nice early-fall week, according to the National Weather Service.

The sun will be out early and late in the week, with some showers predicted for late Tuesday and into Wednesday. The temperature should stay between the high-60s to mid-70s.

2. There's nothing wrong with planning ahead. If you need a few days to get your things together, start sorting now because the town is hosing a Shred It Day on Oct. 6 at the transfer station on Old Forge Road.

This event, scheduled for 9 a.m. until around noon, is for Rocky Hill residents only.

3. If you like going to the movies, but never seem to be able to get to the theater, or just don't want to pay the entrance fee, consider heading on over to the Cora J. Belden Library for catch a flick for free.

This week's selection is The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, described as being about "seven cash-strapped seniors (who) decide to 'outsource' their retirement to a resort in faroff India."

Showtimes are Monday at 6:30 p.m., Thursday at 6 p.m. and Friday at 2 p.m.

For a list of movies scheduled through October go to the library's website and look under Free Movies at the Library.

4. Like history? Love to listen to others talk about Connecticut's role in many of the siginficant moments in time? Don't miss William Hosley, an "outspoken activist for the preservation of the rich cultural history of Connecticut and New England," at the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum in Wethersfield on Thursday.

Hosley will regale his audience with epic stories of sacrifice, heroism and perseverance during his lecture, “Lighting Freedom’s Flame: A Look at Connecticut’s Revolutionary War.”

5. Did you know that there is a Rocky Hill High School alumni website? There is!

With reunion season here, it's a great place to find out what's planned and look for old classmates. You can also read the latest alumni newsletter, read about old friends and recognize Terriers in the military.

Check it out.

If you have an event or announcement that you'd like to promote, upload it to Rocky Hill Patch!
