Kids Central Inc, the regional head Start organization, recently held its second annual Family Movie night at the Central Drive-In as part of the family involvement program. Families from Wise and Dickenson counties and the city of Norton were entertained by seeing Cars 2 and enjoyed free popcorn and drink. 

Almost 600 people attended this event, over 280 of them children and over 250 cars gathered to celebrate another school year beginning. This event was part of Kids Central ongoing efforts to involve families in education development. 

“I think it is great to have so many supporters. I want to thank the Central Drive-In, staff and families for coming together to sustain such a wonderful cause. We at Kid’s Central believe the family has to be healthy and happy for children to have the best opportunity to achieve their full potential,” said Kid Central Executive director Darrell Edwards.
