Kids! Come make the BIGGEST bubbles of your lives -- FREE -- with GRANDPOP BUBBLES™! The Chapel Church (www.thechapelchurch.com) will sponsor GRANDPOP BUBBLES™ and his amazing "Bubble Festival," all the way from Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. .............................. ~~ Bounce Houses ~~ Games ~~ Special appearance by “Ramses” the official UNC mascot ~~ Food Trucks ~~ Baconessence ~~ Maple View Ice cream ~~ Live Music ~~ Face painting .......................... Grandpop Bubbles will bring his bubble wands, poles, basins, buckets, and 90 Gallons of SPECIAL BUBBLE JUICE for as many as possible to enjoy bubbling with #GPOPB. You'll share Grandpop Bubbles' bubble juice and 4' bubble wands and his 3' bubble "Tristrings" (two sticks and strings) to make bubbles. He guarantees that you will make the BIGGEST bubbles of your life -- whatever your age. All will be amazed by the giant bubbles from Grandpop Bubbles' 10', 16’, and now 20’ poles. Bubbles can be 10', 20', 30', and even longer! Some adults may want to try. ..................... There will be so many things for the kids and kids-at-heart to do... ~~ Make BUBBLES and BUBBLE RAINBOWS! ~~ Try to escape the GHOST OF BLOB. ~~ Run away from Bubble GHOSTS, DRAGONS, WHALES, and DINOSAURS! ~~ Pop all the cars of a BUBBLE TRAIN if you can reach them! ~~ Hit the floor with DANCING BUBBLES! ~~ Rain goes through my bubbles, so I will be there unless co-sponsor must cancel event. ~~ Weather forecasts won't tell you, but Grandpop Bubbles predicts that the weather phenomenon he calls the BUBBLE BLIZZARD may occur... (about every half hour). Poppers will freak out! ----------------- Parents will supervise their kids as they make bubbles and bring goggles if desired. Bubble at your own risk. A few KINDNESSES are in order, so teach your children the following before coming and while bubbling... 1. BORROW wands and tristrings and SHARE when the time comes... Children are welcome to bring their wands and blowers or use Grandpop Bubbles' wands and tristrings. 2. Teach kids to RESIST the temptation to STIR the mix. Stirring makes lots of FROTH. FROTH in the mix is BAD for bubbles. Rather, just press the wand to the bottom of the bucket and slide out slowly, sideways is best. 3. We like "POPPERS," but when someone asks you to NOT pop their bubbles, please respect that. Grandpop Bubbles will make enough bubbles for everyone to pop. Only pop bubbles with FINGERS or NOSES. No swinging or throwing stuff, OK? (if we do not follow that request it gets crazy.) 4. You might consider letting the really GIANT Bubbles Live, to enjoy the way they shape-shift. (a.) - If the bubble is smaller than you then go ahead and POP IT! (b.) - If it is bigger than you, then you might want to LET IT LIVE so people can admire the beauty! (c.) - Then, instead of popping the giant bubbles, try to get under them, then BLOW PUFFS of air into them to make little bubbles inside the big bubbles. It's more fun than popping and it lets the giant bubbles live longer so we can enjoy their shapes and colors. 5. RESPECT the equipment you borrow, please. Keep in the area and do not carry while popping any bubbles. Never leave the wands or tristrings on the ground where they get broken and dirty, but return to the cart or bucket home or hand them to a volunteer. ------------------------------------ Grandpop Bubbles enjoys bubbling after a rain or in a drizzle -- perfect conditions: bigger bubbles, and more colorful! Bubbling will go on if at all possible, however, Chapel Hill Baptist will be calling the shots concerning weather. ------------------------------------ Bubbly regards, Pastor Brandon Joyner, [email protected] and Brian Maloney, [email protected] www.facebook.com/GrandpopBubbles Bubble Hotline: 929-BUBBLE-ME (929-282-2536)

"We went to follow refugees in Europe... We found the media" Another News Story (2018)12 | 1h 26min | DocumentarySaturday 22nd June 2019Synopsis:The feature documentary debut of Orban Wallace, Another News Story was filmed during the 2015 Syrian refugee crisis. Wallace’s film follows refugees from the Greek island of Lesbos, into Hungary and Croatia and across Europe to a hoped-for sanctuary. The film chronicles a journey beset by physical deprivation and danger, bureaucratic and political obstacles and thousands of miles of uncertainty. But the British director also turns his camera on the world media on assignment in the Mediterranean as they cover the unfolding humanitarian tragedy. In today’s chaotic era, what is the “who, how, and why” of the 24- hour breaking news cycle as it relates to global conflicts and crises? When faced with immeasurable suffering, how do they balance their humanity with professional objectivity and the day to day mundanity of their jobs. Is it possible to walk the line between a good story and sensationalism? Or, glazed, do you just go after another news story?Film Screening followed by discussion and Q&A led by Faraday Fearnside, founder of Open Hearts Open Borders.Doors open at 7:00, film starts at 7:30 pm.Venue: Truro Baptist Church, Chapel Hill, Truro.Free entry but donations for Open Hearts Open Borders welcome. We will also hold a collection of donated items on the night so please be generous (clothing, mobile phones, torches, blankets, tents, toiletries, sanitary products, baby food, diapers, etc).
