The Culture of Responsible Choices provided a free Movie-in-a-Park event for Desert Lightning Team members here May 4, at Bama Park.

The event was designed to provide an alternate fun activity for the DLT and their families. The CoRC tries to provide free, non-alcoholic events once a quarter.

“The CoRC does a free event once a quarter,” said Tech. Sgt. Latoya Hudson, a mother of two and volunteer at the event. “It’s not always going to be a Movie-in-a-Park event, it just depends on what’s determined on during the quarter.”

These events are put on to represent what CoRC is all about, which is showing people that safe fun can be had without alcohol or drugs.

The CoRC raises money for these events, but the Air Force Assistant Fund helped with funding the event.

“We would like to do more Movie-in-the-Park events, but we would need a lot of participation,” said Master Sgt. Deametreyess Simmons, CoRC president.

The event started at 5:30 p.m. with carnival games, followed by a screening of the movie, “Monsters Inc.”

More than 120 people attended the carnival and more than 20 families watched the movie.

Games included a ring toss, a bean bag toss and a bouncy castle. Cotton candy, water and popcorn were also provided for free.

“I loved seeing all the kids with blue cotton candy on their faces,” said Hudson. “It was like a mini-carnival for the kids.”

Hudson and her husband served cotton candy at the event, while their kids played all the games.

All of the children received a prize for playing the carnival games.

“Let kids be kids,” said Hudson. “They could run around and you didn’t have to worry about them. It was a great experience that I would definitely volunteer for again.”
