The Whitehall Senior Citizens will be given an opportunity to watch an award winning movie that chronicles one of America’s most revered presidents during his defining moment.
“Lincoln” will be shown during the next meeting of the Whitehall Senior Citizens at 1 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 12, at the Senior Center Building on Williams Street, near the village playground.
This viewing is free of charge and is open to all seniors in the Town of Whitehall.
The movie, which features Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln and Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln, follows the president as he fights with cabinet members to emancipate slaves during the Civil War.
During the meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for “The Civil War Observance-1863,” which will be presented by the Bridge Theater at noon on Sunday, Aug. 24, at the Whitehall Athletic Center.
A luncheon will be served prior to the performance.
For more information on either program, or to purchase tickets ($13 for seniors) to the latter event, call Pat Gordon at 499-0477.
