#CI: Canada Day in Marathon, NEW @Crossover, New Release Trailers, $100 Winner and More!

The tragic stories of World War 2 are taught in classrooms around the world. We learn about the horrific acts committed, and the ultimate fall of the Nazi empire. We hear about the battles and the soldiers who fought valiantly to protect their lands and freedoms. What we don’t often hear about are the heroic acts of the everyday people who risked their own lives to make a difference during these trying times. This week’s headline new release tells the harrowing true story of Antonina and Jan Zabinski- husband and wife zookeepers from Poland who put it all on the line to protect their people. There are five new releases this week with a brief synopsis of each below;

Zookeeper’s Wife: starring Jessica Chastain and Daniel Bruhl- Based on a TRUE STORY! During the Nazi invasion of Germany, a husband and wife risk their lives to save hundreds of people by using their Warsaw zoo as a refuge.

We would like to thank everyone who stopped by our table to purchase our delicious freshly popped popcorn during the Town of Marathon’s Canada Day festivities at Penn Lake Park. What a great day it was with fantastic weather and an amazing turnout! A big tip of the hat goes out to Shaughn Clutchey and Sue Morin as well as the many young volunteers who helped in making this event a big success.  I loved looking around and seeing the diverse crowd while hearing all of the different languages being spoken. It was a true reminder of how lucky we are to live in such a great country where everyone can get along! And judging by the big smiles, it seems as though everyone was having a great time! We always look forward to this event and you can count on seeing us there again next year.

This week, we received a full shipment containing exciting new items like; Green Tea Kit Kats, Kracie DIY Pudding Parfait kits, Color changing fruit candies, various flavors of UHA Puccho chewy candies (these are delicious) and Matcha hard candies.
