Foundation plans mother, son date night

Little boys grow up fast, and while mom is still the object of their affection, why not take him out for a date night.
The Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation has scheduled “Show With My Superhero,” an evening that will include a movie and snacks, SCHF executive director Stacey Massey Mahoney said.
The event will be held Sunday, Aug. 27 at the SCH Auditorium and doors will open at 5 p.m. with the movie beginning at 5:30.
The idea to hold a mother/son event was developed during a planning session, Mahoney said.
“We have a little committee comprised of some of the SCHF board members,” she said, and their task is to brainstorm and come up with ideas to offer through the foundation.
Because the “Kids in the Kitchen” offerings have been so popular, developing even more programs geared towards children seemed to be a positive objective.
“Lego Batmam” will be the movie screened, Mahoney said.
“Little boys love the superhero movies, so Margie Heltzel polled some little boys and came up with the ‘Lego Batman’ movie.”
Children are encouraged to wear their favorite superhero costumes and moms can dress up too.
Mahoney said the front of the SCH Auditorium will be staged as a movie theater and in the back there will be tables and chairs set up where superhero snacks will be served.
There will also be a photo booth onsite, so mom and son can take home a souvenir of their night together.
The cost is $25 for a dynamic duo and $10 for each additional superhero.
Although the event is geared towards mothers and sons, female superheroes will not be excluded, Mahoney said.
However, a Daddy/Daughter Princess Ball is scheduled for November.
Also, there are still a few openings for the fall semester of the SCHF’s River Kids Free After-school Art Program.
The program is open to any child in first through sixth grade. The program is 13 weeks and classes will meet on Thursdays from 3:45 to 5 p.m. beginning Thursday, Aug. 24.
“The River Kids Program is designed to encourage children to discover and develop their creative talents, Mahoney said, by exposing creativity through drawing, painting, crafts, collage, ceramics, sculpture and many more exciting techniques. Experienced and accredited educators, Karen Biedenharn and Regina Renot Mattei are scheduled to teach each class.
