Shaker Meet-Up: Muskegon, MI

by Shaker KathleenB

All I wanted to do was tell a cute story, I swear. A local theater held a Facebook contest, with a free screening for the winner. All you had to do was tell them the first movie you ever saw there, and, well, let's just say that I pestered the hell out of my dad to take me to Star Wars because I wanted to see Princess Leia, then made him take me home less than halfway through because the Jawas scared the hell out of me. Seriously, I never expected to actually WIN, because I never win anything. But I did, and now I've got a free screening for any movie I want. On any Saturday afternoon I want. For 120 (yes, one hundred twenty) people. And since I'm not sure I know that many people, or at least don't know 120 people I'd actually want to go to a movie with, I had an idea: This would make an awesome Shaker meetup! And, since this is a hell of an unexpected blessing, I want to do a little teaspooning at the same time.

So here's the deal: Any Shaker who wants to come to Muskegon, MI on September 4 to see Spirited Away and then come to... a restaurant or bar and hang out, eat, and drink (maybe not drink, I haven't ironed that bit out) is welcome. And if you can (ONLY if you can), donate what you'd spend on a night at the movies to Heifer International.
