Back to school movie night at the Embassy

Over 200 guests attended the Embassy gardens to enjoy the free after summer vacation treat

Posted: March 7, 2005

Ambassador Martin J. Silverstein and his family welcomed over 200 guests, mostly children from four different orphanages and a care center for the homeless, along with embassy neighbors, to a free movie night in the embassy compound on March 3.

The event was organized as an end of summer vacation treat to help the kids get ready for their return to school. Movie night included a magic show, and the film "Alladin - the Return of Jaffar".

The youngsters enjoyed lots of popcorn and soda, and at the end of the viewing they received notebooks for school with covers made using a drawing by Elisa Perdomo Moure who won last year's Drawing and Essay Contest for the Fourth of July celebration, and Colgate gift boxes containing toothbrushes and toothpaste.
