Monkton news for Sept. 20

MONKTON — The East Monkton Church Association and the Russell Memorial Library will be co-sponsoring a presentation of the Emmy winning film “Made in LA” on Sunday, Sept. 23, at 1 p.m. at the East Monkton Church at 405 Church Road.
This film follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from a trendy clothing retailer. It reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman’s life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, and deeply human, it is a story about immigration, the power of unity and the courage it takes to find your voice.
Note that if you have trouble walking or are in a wheelchair, you may pull your vehicle onto the grass on either side of the church and someone will be happy to assist you up the few steps to get inside. Also, there will be portable restroom facilities at the church.  Additional parking will be along Church Road.
For more information or if you have other questions, contact Candace at 802-453-7575.
