MARCH 16

Lenton Fish Fry is 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Bosecke Hall at the Holy Rosary Church, 163 Leedy Drive, Lander. Menu includes a generous portion of fish, fries, cole slaw, dessert and a drink. Cost is $7 per person. Children 10 and under eat free.

"Bomber," a British film by Paul Cotter is at 7 p.m. in the Little Theater at the Lander Library, 200 Amoretti St. Alistar and Valerie have been planning a special trip to Germany for a very long time. When their son Ross stops by the house to send them off, happenstance turns into an impromptu family road trip of the most tortuous kind. Alistar berates Ross for all that he is not in life, while Valerie tries to keep the peace. It is soon discovered that Alistar's reason for the often comic, sometimes painful trip is to shed a guilt he's been carrying for years. Ultimately, the family learns they need each other more then they imagined. Event is free and open to the public. Popcorn and soda will be served.
