Screen on the Green - A League of Their Own
Friday, March 10
8 p.m.

As America's stock of athletic young men is depleted during World War II, a professional all-female baseball league springs up in the Midwest, funded by publicity-hungry candy maker Walter Harvey (Garry Marshall). Competitive sisters Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) and Kit Keller (Lori Petty) spar with each other, scout Ernie Capadino (Jon Lovitz) and grumpy has-been coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) are on their way to fame. Madonna and Rosie O'Donnell co-star as two of the sisters' teammates.

Then we'll have the Cardinals, Marlins, Astros, Washington Nationals all playing this weekend at the new Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, so go out and catch a spring training game.

Beach Clean Up
Saturday, March 11 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Charlie's Crab

Last month the Town Council of Palm Beach passed an ordinance to ban baloon launches in Palm Beach. Baloons are one of the many things are really hazardous to the native wild life. They are mistaken for food by wildlife and add to the trash that washes up on the beaches.
