Guardians of the Galaxy July 22 on Sorauren screen

The second outdoor movie of the season features the swashbuckling raccoon and other heroes (human, couple of aliens, a wonderful tree-being) from the 2014 summer hit, Guardians of the Galaxy.

If you loved it the first time, you’ll love it more with friends at the park. If you haven’t seen it, now’s your chance. If you’re unsure about sci-fi comic book adventures, this is the one to check out. Great soundtrack. Funny. PG.

The movie plays on the big screen at the Sorauren Town Square on Saturday, July 22 starting at 9:00. It’s free, with popcorn and park t-shirts for sale, and donations always accepted.

Thanks again to our sponsors for making the Sorauren Outdoor Movie season possible.

Volunteers needed July 22-23 to finish outdoor oven

The Friends of Sorauren Park are calling for community volunteers to help finish the park’s new bake oven, with a community build scheduled for Saturday, July 22 and Sunday July 23.

There’s a special need for a mason or folks with masonry skills, as well as folks with carpentry and roofing skills. But anyone handy with tools and willing to help out is invited to put their stamp on the oven. We’ll have a contractor on hand to supervise.

The oven’s specialized core has been completed by a professional. Now we need to build the housing and roof to surround the core and give the oven its final look.

The final build is made possible thanks to a generous donation by Zinc Developments, developers of the 35 Wabash Avenue condo across the street from the park. Zinc’s donation purchases all the supplies to finish the oven. Thanks Zinc!

Use our volunteer form to sign up and receive details.
