Healthy Communities Film: "Troubled Waters"

The Emmy Award-winning "Troubled Waters: A Mississippi River Story" tells the story of the unintended yet severe consequences of farming along the Mississippi and the efforts being taken to reverse this damage. America’s heartland boasts some of the world’s most productive farmland, but this bounty has come with a price. Excess crop fertilizers are contaminating the nation’s rivers, lakes and aquifers, while at the same time precious soil is washing away.

Tom Cotter

Taking the comedy scene by storm as runner-up and the first comedian finalist on NBC's "America's Got Talent," Tom's age-spanning and appropriate humor has won him appeal with audiences of all types and varieties.

Deaf History Month Movie Night: "Black Sand"

This all ASL film stars Micaela Paulone of “Weeds” fame. Four deaf students descend upon a tropical rain forest resort in Costa Rica in search of an adventure during their vacation. Staying at a relative’s beachfront property, beautiful waterfalls and lush green jungles are the first signs of paradise. The students soon discover that there’s also a darker side to such beauty. What is the secret being protected? Why is it so unspeakable? Subtitled for the signing impaired.
