We are proud to announce our partnership with the Plymouth Canton Citizens for Diversity and Inclusion, a diverse group of community members. Its goal is to further diversity and inclusion throughout the Plymouth/Canton Community. Their vision is to guide our community to recognize the importance of building a culturally diverse place with the spirit of inclusion which will create a welcoming environment. The first movie in our Diversity and Inclusion Movie Series is:
The great debaters — starring Denzel Washington. This deeply-inspiring film based on a true story. Washington stars as a brilliant, politically radical debate team coach who transforms a group of underdog African American college students. The group takes on the elite Harvard team in a showdown debate.
Come watch the movie followed by a group discussion on Wednesday, January 30 at 6:00 PM. Parents are welcome to bring their tweens and teens.

The dogs of winter by Bobbie Pyron is an incredible, heart-pounding survival story based on fact. Ivan is but one of 80,000 to 2 million homeless children forced to fend for himself in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union. Most of these abandoned children form packs and live in vacant buildings and/or underground train stations. What distinguishes four year old Ivan Mishukov is his decision to depend on a pack of feral street dogs instead of other children for his survival. For two years they eek out an existence together, helping one another just as a family would. Enduring the brutal Russian winters with temperatures often twenty below zero is almost beyond belief. As Ivan is later quoted as saying, "I was better off with the dogs. They loved and protected me." For years his dreams are of dogs - warm, soft, loving dogs who are always there watching out for him.
This powerful, illuminating story is one that you will never forget.
