Bay Film Series plans to show ‘Mr. Rogers’ film

ESCANABA – To start the school year, a special showing of the documentary, “Won’t You be my Neighbor” will be shown by the Bay Film Series. The film is shown in conjunction with a number of children’s advocacy groups including the Delta-Schoolcraft Great Start Collaborative, the Delta Schoolcraft Great Start Parent Coalitions, Great Start to Quality Resource Center, the U.P. Association for the Education of Young Children, and the U.P. Early Childhood Council.

“Won’t You be my Neighbor”, shown Sept. 13 at 7 p.m., is a glimpse into the life of beloved children’s programmer Fred Rogers.

Prior to the film, early childhood professionals are invited to attend a Kick-Off Event at 6 p.m. in the Besse Theater Lobby sponsored by the U.P. Chapter of the Michigan Association of the Education of Young Children. The first 80 ECE professionals to register will receive free admission to the film, hors d’oeuvres, and the chance to network with colleagues.

Registrants will receive a swag bag and be entered into a drawing for ECE-related prizes, courtesy of Bay College and the ECE sponsors.
