Finally, on Monday, August 30 at 1 p.m. is the Monday Movie Matinee, where this month’s showing is of Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors. It is based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton, and her remarkable upbringing. Providing a front seat view inside the tight-knit Parton family, the film shows the struggle they face to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love and faith. The setting is in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains of 1955. It is neither a biopic nor a musical about Parton’s life and career, but a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family’s life when she was approximately nine years of age.

Advanced registration is required at all Pearl Senior Services events, and space is limited. There are no holds for any of the scheduled events. All residents fifty-five and older are encouraged to attend.

The Pearl Senior Center hours are Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
