UMW Meeting

12 Sep 2019 | 06:30 pm - 08:30 pm

Lovely Lane UMW’s meeting Thursday, Sept. 12, at 6:30 PM in Lovely Lane’s Library & Fellowship Hall.

Lovely Lane’s UMW’s first meeting this fall will be on Sept. 12, at 6:30 PM. We will be presenting an interesting movie about the effects of the Wall. In 2006, the U.S. government decided to build a fence along its Mexican border. Three years later and $3 billion later, award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy offers this revealing and surprising look at the story behind the fence’s construction and its ultimate efficacy. Built to contain illegal immigration, crack down on drug trafficking and protest America from terrorists, the project has given way to unforeseen, even absurd consequences. Featuring candid interviews with border guards, ranchers, environmentalists and voices from both sides of the immigration debate, the film provides an insightful and often humorous analysis of the contradictions and misinformation that have dogged the fence from its conception. Judy McDowell will coordinate our program and be our hostess. Come see the film, discuss its implications, and enjoy some popcorn, snacks and pop or water. MARK YOUR CALENDERS AND COME JOIN US!
