Movies on the Green

The River Creek Club will be showing the movie “Sing” on July 18 from 8-10 p.m. The apron that slopes down on the back side of the clubhouse forms an ideal amphitheater, an outdoor setting for gazing at the Potomac River or for watching movies. Ice cream and popcorn will be on hand for the movie goers consisting of members and their guests at no charge.
“Sing” came out in 2016 and features anthropomorphic animals meaning they have human traits. Voices in the movie come from Mathew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson.

Lifeguards from Slovakia

Every summer, the company Premier Aquatics hires lifeguards from eastern Europe to work at the swimming pools in Lansdowne and River Creek. Phillip and Petra from Slovakia are on duty at River Creek. Phillip said they have very little free time working for 10 or 11 hours each day. But before returning to their home country, they will have some time off. He says they “both want to see the great monuments in D.C.

“And go to Las Vegas, New York and Hawaii,” he added. They ride their bikes to and from their place in Leesburg, enjoy soccer, read a lot, spend time with friends and, according to Petra, “Five Guys hamburgers, very good.”
