The Allegany Arc has partnered with the David A. Howe Library, 155 North Main Street, Wellsville to present a monthly Sensory Friendly Family Movie Night. Movies will be shown the third Wednesday from 4:30pm to 7:00pm in the Nancy Howe Auditorium. These Sensory Friendly Family Movie Nights are open to the public and FREE of charge.
Connecting with your children on a daily basis, even if it is just for a few minutes can make a big difference in the outcome of any given day in the family household. Today’s world looks and feels very different from what it did a generation ago. Parents are of course working hard, long hours, while children are more involved with extracurricular activities, such as sports and civic clubs, and that awful cell phone where they text 10,000 messages in a day to their friends. Families are very busy these days! Nevertheless, did you know that research tells us that the more our children feel connected or attached to their family unit, the less likely they will be involved with drugs and alcohol or risky behavior? These Family Fun Movie Nights are a free and fun way that families can spend time together.
