Dive-In Movie

Posted by    |    June 23rd, 2011 at 10:33 pm

No, it’s not a Drive-In movie. In Allen, Texas, they have turned Drive-In into Dive-In. At the Don Rodenbaugh Natatorium, people dive into the leisure pool for a relaxing night around the water and then enjoy a screening of a fairly recent movie.

On designated Saturday nights, parents take their kids, some take a date and friends take each other to hop in the pool. After a hot day, a night under the stars and cooling off in the pool is exactly what the doctor ordered.

The Natatorium offers noodles and rafts for rent. They also have a concession stand to provide food for those empty stomach or those must have “movie munchies”.

The Recreation Hall

Posted by    |    June 22nd, 2011 at 10:29 pm

The Recreation Hall in Allen hosts a weekly dance for adults with disabilities on Fridays from 7-10PM. Adults with disabilities usually have very few options for entertainment in their lives. Not only does Allen provide entertainment for them, but also the weekly dance gives adults with disabilities an opportunity to come together and celebrate life with others similar to themselves.

The dance always has a unique and fun theme, and the Recreation Hall provides snacks and a photo booth to capture memories that these adults will cherish for a lifetime. Most exciting, these adults are not listening to an iPod or DJ, Allen brings in live music for them to enjoy. This gives adults who don’t like dancing the option of just watching and listening to an entertaining band. At this party, there is a place for everyone.
