We need your help!

We still need able-bodied carpenters and handy-people to help assemble sets. This is your chance to not only play a large role in helping FilmAcres make a movie, but a great way to meet new people! Thank you to everyone who has helped in the past weeks. These set pieces will be an integral part to rehearsals and the film…so it’s ALL HANDS ON DECK!

Help us assemble sets from 1 to 5 p.m. CST Sunday, March 10, at our facility, which is in the former Wheatbrooks hardware store at 209 S. Prairie St. in Rolling Prairie. No electrical work is anticipated, but volunteers with drills or other tools are encouraged to bring them. Invite your hardworking friends to come with you.

Anyone willing to help March 9 can RSVP by calling the office or through the website at http://www.filmacres.com.

We’re also in the process of buying materials and supplies for the office. However, if you have any of these items and would like to donate them, or know of people willing to donate them, we’d be thrilled. All supplies need to be at the office by Saturday, March 8. The office will be staffed Monday through Friday. Call (219) 778-2511 to arrange either a time to drop off items or have them picked up.
