1Movies in the Park is back for the Summer of 2017 and it’s getting rolling a little earlier than normal!

Tonight at Lambton-Kent Composite School in Dresden The Croods will be shown on the giant outdoor movie screen.

There is some family activities beginning at 6:30 and the movie will begin at dusk for absolutely free!

(This original date had to be changed because the date was a conflict with Dresden Kinstock)

Movies in the Park will resume every Friday night beginning July 7th across Chatham-Kent. Check the full schedule here.

Five Things - 2Cellphone companies will no longer be allowed to charge customers to unlock their devices beginning in December.

The new code from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission also says as of December 1st, all newly purchased devices must be sold unlocked — one of several other changes aimed at giving people more control over their wireless services.

Five Things - 3Everyone knows Canada is celebrating its 150th this year, but so is Bothwell.

Bothwell is busy preparing for the town’s anniversary with a special homecoming event that will include historical displays, a car show, live music, midway games, chainsaw carving demonstrations, an auction, and a fireworks show.

So they’re expecting a lot of guests, and what do you do when you’re expecting a lot of guests?? You clean up!

So Municpal Councilor Van Damme, Waste Connections and the Ridge Landfill have teamed up to offer garbage bins at the Bothwell Arena and at 189 Elm St. for locals to dump their garbage. They’ve been out since Monday.

Bins have been donated so there is no charge for the taxpayer.

Five Things - 4August 25th to 27th Major League Baseball is relaxing the dress code for ‘Players Weekend’ and allowing players to wear nicknames on the back of their jerseys.

They’ll have to stick to the same one for the whole weekend, and they can’t have anything that’s “inappropriate or offensive.”

Players will also be able to personalize the colors of their spikes, batting gloves, wristbands, compression sleeves, and catcher’s masks. And the jerseys will feature a patch with space for a player to personalize it by, “writing the name of an individual or organization that was instrumental to his development.”

The jerseys from the weekend will be sold by MLB, with proceeds going to the Youth Development Foundation. And to any purists who don’t like this whole idea, it’s something the players wanted.

Five Things - 5The Governor General of Canada announced yesterday the 6 new appointments to the Order of Canada.

They’ll be honoured on Monday.
