From watching space aliens to yodeling singers, please don't forget the lovely Warner Grand Theater's Sundays are Fundays -- dedicated to bring families back to the historic era in downtown San Pedro.
Coming up are some family favorites, both on Sundays at 2 p.m.
E.T. will play April 1 at a cost of $5 for adults and $2 for children under the age of 12.
The story about the space alien who lands in a family's backyard and eats up M&Ms, turned immediately into a family classic -- which all ages can enjoy.
Another family treasure, the sing-along Sound of Music, will be shown May 6 for $10 a ticket on the day of the showing and $5 for advanced ticket sales.
Susan Wilcox, a constant volunteer for the Warner who helps run the Sunday's are Fundays program, said: "a costume contest and other nutty things relating to the theme of the movie, will be included in this showing." For further information, call(310)833-8333 or visit the website at The theater is located at 478 Sixth St., San Pedro.
Dear Readers:

Please consider this site a place to post items going on at your school, fundraisers for a non-profit entities involving children, children’s submissions and other possibilities by sending them to Your voice will be welcome at this post site, especially for events involving children. ..

At this time, I want to send many special thanks to Its’ A Grind – a coffee house on Western Avenue in San Pedro that has supported several schools by providing free coffee for many school events. San Pedro High School, Dana Middle School, Crestwood Street Elementary and Taper Avenue Elementary have all benefited from support from owners, Karen Anderson and Robyn Richardson, a mother-daughter team who partnered to run the chain at this location.
“We just help as much as we can,” Karen told me yesterday. – who frequently has encouraged schools to consider her spot as a place for students work to shine, such as having poetry readings or one-person skits at the sight.
I thank Karen and her daughter for what they do for children and the many local businesses who reach out and support their schools.
