Asphalt Cinema Offers Three Evenings of Summer Fun
Reserve the third Friday of June, July, and August for an evening of music, art, games, and prizes that ends under the stars with a family friendly movie -- all at Impett Park, 3207 West 153rd Street. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets! The fun begins at 6:30 p.m. It's free, thanks to our sponsors.
Kids are invited to try creative games of chance and skill for small prizes – all provided by local merchants and organizations. A ring toss, pin the tail on the doggy, hula-hoops, and more will keep the kids engaged. In June and July, the popular Pork Chop Derby will return for squeals of laughter – and prizes to the first place pig’s “owner.”
Also in June, more than 100 bike helmets will be given away, thanks to a grant from the Ohio Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Bike Cleveland will assist with the fitting and distribution of these helmets.
In August, a City of Cleveland Safety Fair will take place in the area adjacent to the parking lot from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Meet first-hand with law enforcement agency representatives. Walk through the smoke house and get up close and personal with a fire truck, motorcycle, and bomb squad truck. Pick up giveaways and information from city departments.
In addition to games, there will be art activities and everyone will be invited to dance and sing with the help of a DJ, starting at 7:30 p.m. Draw characters from the featured film and win a prize! The artistic portion of Asphalt Cinema is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
Beverages and popcorn are available for purchase from West Denison Baseball League.
The movie and the fun activities are FREE of charge thanks to our Asphalt Cinema sponsor, Fairview Hospital!

Annual Town Meeting Set for Wednesday, June 22
Kamm's Corners Development Corporation’s 39th Annual Town Meeting returns to the auditorium of St. Joseph Academy at 3470 Rocky River Drive on Wednesday, June 22, at 7 p.m.
Please join us for an informative evening. The event is free of charge and parking is plentiful. On your way in, visit the display tables of local non-profit agencies to learn more about their programs. The evening’s agenda includes updates on neighborhood initiatives such as the newly created Special Improvement District for Downtown Kamm's Corners. There will be an update on collaborative efforts with Bellaire Puritas Development Corporation. Councilman Marty Keane will provide news about city-related issues.
Several awards will be presented, including a Community Impact Award. Our always-popular "Spontaneous Raffle" will round out the evening. A short reception will follow on the new "Scholar's Porch," an outdoor, rooftop area overlooking the Cleveland Metroparks. Cookies from K & K Portage Market and beverages will be served there. We are grateful to Fairview Hospital for their sponsorship of this key community event.

The Kamm's Corners Summer Arts & Entertainment Series
Presenting a wide breadth of musical, visual, and culinary arts at our family friendly events, the Kamm's Corners Summer Arts and Entertainment Series launches with The Hooley on Kamm's Corners™ and continues weekly throughout the summer at our Kamm's Corners Farmers Markets every Sunday from June through October. See the flyer. It is also a feature of Asphalt Cinema, a free outdoor movie evening on the third Fridays of June, July, and August at Impett Park. See the flyer.
We are grateful for the volunteer work of the many residents and business owners who take part in planning and running these events, making the series such a great success! To become involved, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 216-252-6559, ext. 1600.
We appreciate support from our generous sponsors such as Fairview Hospital in helping to pay for the Summer Arts & Entertainment Series.
In addition, we thank the residents of Cuyahoga County for supporting this program through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
Funding from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture is different from our other funders because Cuyahoga County residents voted in 2006 to create this agency to fund the amazing arts and culture in our community with local tax dollars. KCDC is pleased to be among the groups funded in 2015.
