Aspinwall police hosting 3rd family movie night
Aspinwall police will host their third summer movie night on Friday, with Disney/Pixar’s “Coco” showing on the big screen.
The family-friendly event begins at 8:15 p.m. at the Ben Killian Field off 5th Street.
“I feel movie night has been a success because it gets families out among the community, one another and our police, and that was our goal,” said Acting Chief Dave Nemec.
He said the mission is to rekindle the act of community policing.
“That is what makes Aspinwall what it is,” he said.
The department plans to host one more movie night in October, as long as the weather cooperates. Last month, officers hosted a bike ride through town that ended with a showing of “A Wrinkle in Time.”
“I feel we have an awesome bunch of officers and would ask our community to get to know them more,” Nemec said.
“Our number one goal is keeping our town and residents safe, but making friends along the way never hurts.”
Families are encouraged to bring blankets and lounge chairs.
