Dinner and a Movie
Saturday, November 19, at 7 P.M. Dinner: Beef Chili, Vegetarian Chili, jalapeno pesto pizza, nachos, salad.
Sign Of the Pagan (1954): As Attila's hordes advance upon Rome, noble centurion Marcian (Chandler) mounts a counteroffensive. Alas, the Scourge of God cannot be stopped by weaponry or sheer brute strength. No, Attila can be halted in his tracks only by the hand of God Himself. Through a deft combination of historical fact and movie magic, this is precisely what happens. Ballerina Ludmilla Tcherina, her voice dubbed by an anonymous American actress, co-stars as Marcian's lady love, while Rita Gam is sublimely cast as Attila's long-suffering daughter. Also appearing as Attila's slave bride is Allison Hayes, some three years away from her starring turn in Attack of the 50-Foot Woman. Film Buffs take note, Director Douglas Sirk shot the movie twice. We will compare regular and cinemascope versions.
Please bring BYOB. Dessert or movie snack welcome. $10 per person.
Updates from the Board
The security has received several complaints about motor bikes on Ridge Road. These should be registered and operated by licensed drivers only.
Isle Security and Window Stickers
Docks to be removed Saturday, Oct. 29, at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers are needed, and coffee, donuts and lunch will be served to volunteers.
Road work delayed
The vendor who has been contracted to perform work on the Isle roadways experienced delays in other jobs that pushed back the Isle projects. As a result, the Board decided to postpone all roadwork until the spring when the weather will be more suitable.
News from the Candlewood Eye
[Editor’s Note: The following is from Richard Price]: “We have been delighted with the response to the Candlewood Isle Little Free Library. What great books have come through, and what a variety! There have been wonderful donations in practically every category: young adult, history, fiction, mystery/thriller, sports books, biography, kids, classics, field guides, and more. You really never know what you’ll find there. Huge thanks to the Isle community for the great support!
“The stock will keep rotating, so check back often. Right now it’s Halloween season, with ghost stories, classics, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Goosebumps, and lots more! (There are even motion-activated LEDs so you can enjoy some spooky browsing after dark.) It’s at the corner of Lake Drive South and Hemlock.
“Here's how the Little Free Library works: Take a book. If you see something you would like to read, take it. Share it. Return it to this or to any library, or pass it on to a friend, or if you like it, keep it! Leave a book: Give books you think your neighbors would enjoy. You don’t have to leave one to take one, or vice versa. This is a community library!”
